Greeley Wildcat News February 2020
Congratulations to our school spelling bee winners: Isaac Richards and Wyatt Bryan! They went on to represent Greeley at the Anderson County spelling bee on Friday, January 24th. We appreciate their hard work and we’re very proud of them!
All-School conferences: Thursday, February 6 from 4:00-8:00 pm.
All-Elementary conferences: Tuesday, February 11 from 4:00-8:00 pm.
We’ve had very good parent attendance for conferences in the past and we hope to have 100% attendance this year. It is important to keep the parent-teacher connection, and by attending conferences it shows your child that school is important to you! If you need to re-schedule, please call the office at 785-867-3460. Conferences are for Preschool through 6th grade.
Spring Pictures: Wednesday, February 12
Spring pictures are more casual and often bring out your child’s personality. K-6 students may bring a small prop to use in their picture. A prop can be a favorite toy, medal, award, baseball, collectible etc. Props cannot be a weapon, alive (family pet), and must be easily transported if he/she rides the bus. It will be up to each child to have their prop ready when it’s their turn for photos. We will not make phone calls to parents if the prop is forgotten at home that day.
Preschool students have spring pictures too, but should NOT bring a prop. Their photo session goes much better without one.
Buck Bingo Night: Friday, February 28 Sponsored by Greeley PTO, Buck Bingo Night is a fun way to support the PTO and our school. Bingo cards are 4 for $1.00 Win great prizes!
Yearbook order forms will be handed out to parents at conference time.
The school yearbook is 20 pages of full color photos documenting our activities throughout the year. It’s a great keepsake for kids as they spend up to 10 years at our building if they attend preschool and go through 6th grade! Think how much they change each year. The cost is $17.00 and can be paid by cash or check (payable to Greeley PTO). We need 50 orders to be able to get our book published each year, so every order counts! Deadline to order: March 13, 2020.

Thank you for helping your child participate in Spirit Week, wearing Chiefs gear, and “liking” our Cheer the Chiefs videos.
