In a continued effort to ensure student safety, the district will be starting an automatic call-out system (similar to the phone voice messages that Mrs. Brinckman makes) that will alert you if your child is not in school that day. This system will go into effect for Shoemaker Elementary School on Monday, September 23rd. You can anticipate to receive a phone call around 9:40 on days where your child is recorded absent at school.

1.Birthdays - Due to the increase in food sensitivity and allergies,we are no longer going to allow food birthday treats in our classrooms at Shoemaker. Knowing how important birthdays are to our students, we will continue to recognize student birthdays on our PTO monthly birthday board displayed in the hallway of the lobby area. Additionally, if you are interested, you may send in non-edible "treats" for your child's class on his or her birthday.
2, Celebrations - Other classroom celebrations, dates and healthy food items, will be arranged at the discretion of each classroom teacher. Please pay close attention to communication from your child's teacher regarding those special events.
