TK / Kindergarten Holiday Performance!

 


 

Ron Nunn School Spreads Holiday Cheer through Summerset!



On Wednesday, December 13, our Ron Nunn KC Club and school community sang Holiday Carols through the Summerset I Neighborhood.  This is a 7 year tradition between our communities.  The Summerset I residents surprised our school with a donation of $1,500.00 to our KC Club!  We are blessed by the positive relationship our school community has with our neighbors.


 

SMART911 is a free service available for all residents and travelers into or through Brentwood and can provide key information to the dispatchers and first responders in case of an emergency. When a 911 call is made, the information provided in the SMART911 profile  will be displayed to the dispatcher, allowing them to better inform first responders of services that may be needed. Families are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with SMART911 to have their information available to our 911 dispatchers and to receive emergency notifications.

Smart911 is private and secure, is only used for emergency responses and only made available to the 911 system in the event of an emergency call. To sign up for SMART911, please visit the website at www.smart911.com

Chillin' & Grillin'

A Relaxing Event at Ron Nunn School

 

On Sept. 8, our Ron Nunn families gathered to have a night of fun and community building at our Chillin' and Grillin'.  Brentwood Rotary donated hot dogs, Bristow and Interact Clubs helped run fun activities.  A great time was had by all.  Thank you to our wonderful community in making this event successful. 

 

    
  
 

Reminder for our Procedures:

The ultimate goal of our procedures is to ensure all students are safe in their travels to school and have a safe, positive learning environment.  We greatly appreciate everyone who follows these procedures safely on a daily basis. We ask that staff members and families model appropriate and safe behavior at all times. CPR is the Lifeline of Ron Nunn School, and we ask all in our community to show Cooperation, Participation, and Respect when on the Ron Nunn campus.  

Please take a moment to thoroughly review our Student/Parent Handbook and the following reminders with your family.

  • Please note our campus opens at 7:45 every morning, allowing a 30-minute window of opportunity to drop off your students in the morning. School begins promptly at 8:00 for our early bird TK/Kindergarten and 8:15 for 1st – 5th grade students. Please ensure students are here and ready to learn every day at the start of school.
  • Our gates open at 7:45 am.  There is no supervision prior to this, please arrange for drop off on or after 7:45 am.
  • Due to no supervision on the yard prior to 8:00, please remind all students arriving before 8:00 to report, directly to the lunch tables. At the 8:00 bell, all students are expected to drop off their backpacks at their class and head directly to the yard. All 1st-5th grade students and parents will report to the playground at the 8:00 bell and remain on the playground until school begins. Parents should say their goodbyes to their student at the playground at the 8:12 bell. No students are allowed in the halls before school and during recesses.
  • Please be sure to keep an eye out for our students as you near and enter our school by vehicle.
  • Parents, please remind your students who walk or ride to school to be safe and abide by the rules, such as utilizing bike lanes when possible and using crosswalks.
  • Please pull forward as far as possible in the loop when dropping off or picking up your students.
  • Please never leave your car unattended in the pick-up loop. It is a rolling loop to drop off/pick up and go.
  • Children should be prepared to enter/exit car in the loop.
  • Please don’t ask your children to run across the street or meet you in a different spot. Please use the crosswalks at all times.  Students may either be picked up in the loop or in person by an adult walking to pick them up. Please don’t use the Kindergarten loop for older students. Only parents with Kindergarten students are allowed to use that loop.
  • Please help support the safety of all children by being aware, courteous, and notifying us of any unsafe situations.

School Attendance Is the Key to Success
Your child’s attendance is directly related to their academic success at school. Tardiness to school causes your child to miss instruction and disrupts the rest of the class. It is nearly impossible to replace the key first instruction that a child misses when he/she is absent. Additionally, Brentwood Union School District receives a significant portion of its funding based upon student attendance. The district will only receive funding when children are in school. Students absent from school for any reason will not receive funding. It is critical that your child attend school regularly and be on time for class every day. 

 

Going Somewhere? Site Based Independent Study
If your family is planning to leave for 5-20 days, resulting in your child missing school, your child is eligible for Site-Based Independent Study (SBIS). While there is no substitute for being in the classroom setting, SBIS provides your child the necessary work to keep pace with what their peers are doing in class. It also counts as an excused absence and the school receives funding as if your child was actually in school. Please inform your child’s teacher or notify the office early if you plan to have your child out for a period of 5-20 days. 

 

Leave your Mark on Ron Nunn

Buddy Bench- A Friendly Idea

 

Ron Nunn School's Bella and Sophia thought that they would like a Buddy Bench at Ron Nunn School.  They said the Buddy Bench will allow for students that did not have friends or those that wanted to make new friends to have a way of doing so.  The way it works is if you want to make a new friend or are feeling lonely, sit on the buddy bench.  All students, especially those on Buddy Patrol, will come and ask you to play or talk with that student.  It is a way for Ron Nunn Eagles to continue to spread kindness even on the playground.  It has been a great success in the first month of inception.  Way to show Cooperation, Participation, and Respect Eagles!

Brentwood School District Wellness Guidelines state:
Due to allergy concerns, it is strongly recommended to use only commercially prepared food items (ingredients are listed on packaging).

For everyone's safety, it is a school expectation that any treats for birthday or holiday celebrations for students include only commercially prepared items with ingredients listed on the package. 

Our School recommends alternatives to food for holiday celebrations including learning games or other activities to celebrate students.

Thank you for your cooperation in this effort.  Our goal is to keep all students safe and model healthy food choices.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Wallace.

Please click on the Cyber Safety Link to review the various safety measures with your children in using the Internet and Social Media.
