A Big Smiles dental form was sent home with all students grades PK-12 last week. They will be coming to our school at the end of January to perform basic dental care for any student that fills out a permission form. They accept Medicaid, private insurance and a reduced fee for those that qualify. If you already have a regular dentist that your child sees then this is not an option for you. If your child does not have a regular dentist please consider filling out the form and returning it to school. If you have questions or your student has lost their form please contact Leslie Weyland at the school for info or another form. ALL forms will be due Wednesday December 15.
We will be highlighting more of the items available in the PTO Christmas Shop next week.
Alton Elementary PTO is super excited to be hosting the Christmas Shop for the Elementary students starting Monday, December 13. Please talk with your students about who they want to shop for and make a list to help keep them budget. Items are priced $1.00-$5.00.
