December Dress-Up Days
The staff at Shapiro LOVE dress-up days! For the month of December, we would like to invite our friends to dress up with us.
Here is the December dress-up calendar if your student would like to join in the fun!
Cold Weather Clothing
As much as we hate to admit it...winter is here. Please help us make sure that our friends are dressed appropriately for the weather. Warm jackets, hats and mittens/gloves are important daily items. If there is snow on the ground and your student would like to play in the snow, they MUST be dressed in snow pants and boots. Without snow pants and boots, students will be asked to stay on the blacktop.
Should you need any assistance with providing winter gear to your student, please contact our school counselor, Emily Schmitz, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Shapiro students have FREE breakfast and lunch provided to them. Please click the link below to see what's on the menu for this month:
Or, you can take a look at our visual lunch menu below:
We can't say "thank you" enough to those who donated clothing to our health office. Your generosity means so much to us!
We are still taking any donations of new or gently used clothing clothing, if you are looking to help!
There will be NO SCHOOL December 9 for students, as well as December 23-January 2 for Winter Break.
Parking & Pick Up/Drop Off Rules
Families, please remember that there is no parking in the pick up lines. We need to be keeping those lanes open for a safe and steady flow of traffic. Please see the Traffic Flow and Parking Document for more specific information. There is also NO PARKING in the staff parking lot at any time. Please use 18th Ave. and Knapp Street to park your vehicle.
Additionally, there is no parking in the circle driveway in front of the building, unless you have a form of handicapped identification visible on your vehicle. If that is the case, please park in the designated parking spots only. We ask that you not park in front or in back of the busses for the safety of all students and staff.

Office Tips From Mrs. Molash
*Visitors are not allowed in the building without an appointment. When coming to the school, please ring the doorbell on the left side of the front doors, and the office staff will assist you from there.
*School Office hours are 7:30am- 3:15pm
*If your child will be going home with the parent of another school friend, or an adult that is not on your emergency contact list, we can NOT let your child leave the care of our school unless we hear from a parent or guardian of the student. It is our responsibility to keep our friends safe at all times, that includes dismissal. Please remember to contact the school office, or your child's teacher, if your child will be leaving with a different adult.
*Playground supervision does not begin until 7:30am. We ask that you do not drop your students off before that time. Teachers bring in students from the back playground at 7:40am. If your student is arriving after that time, they will need to come in through the front door of the school.
*Students who arrive after 7:55am will be marked unexcused. We are unable to excuse a late student unless we hear from the parent directly.
*If any of your information has changed; cell phone, work phone, emergency contact information, address, email, etc., please be sure to contact the office as soon as possible to have that information updated. Having your most current information allows us to contact you for school news, sending home important mail, and in the event of an emergency.
As always, if you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach me at 920.424.0164, or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
