8th Grade Quotes Due
The Yearbook team is requesting 8th grade quotes. Quotations must be appropriate, non-political, and positive. To keep the Yearbook a lasting, memorable experience, any inappropriate quotations will not appear in the Yearbook. Students may go to the Class of ‘24 Schoology Course for the link.
Also, students that purchase their Yearbook by October 31st, pay $28. You can complete purchases online. You’ll need your child’s student ID.
We need the Happy Birthday song, soap and water
Did you that know that you and your child should wash your hands for as long as it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song twice? With flu season upon us and for the safety of our students with life threatening food allergies, proper hand washing is an easy and effective way to prevent the spread of germs and the cross-contact of food allergens!
Here’s a Pierce County Health Department resource.
6th Grade Families Can Reinforce Lessons
Last week, in Pack, your child thought about his or her values and how he or she can use those values to help make good decisions.
Family Lesson Question: Ask your child about some of his or her values. Talk about how these values are similar to or different from yours.
This week, your child has learned how thinking about his or her values can help make school a place where everyone feels safe and welcome.
Family Lesson Question: Think of a group your child belongs to outside of school. Ask your child how thinking about his or her values can help him or her be a positive influence on this group.
We appreciate partnering with our families to make Kopachuck as welcoming as possible.

Conference Meals, dinner for teachers and staff working late for parent conferences on the 15th and 17th. Please sign-up to support and say Thank You to our KMS staff. Sign-up at https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/10c094caba62ba5ff2-teacher
Coyote Corner, our student store, opened October 1st to the students delight. Volunteers are needed to maintain operations. Sign-ups are open at https://m.signupgenius.com/#!/showSignUp/20f0a48aaab2ea0fc1-coyote. Reminder, you have to be a KPTSA member to handle money. For those who have not worked Coyote Corner previously, you must attend a quick training prior to volunteering.
Thanks for all your help. Together, we are making great things happen!
