Claire’s Gourmet Fundraiser
Please remember that all fundraiser orders are due back to McIlvaine no later than Friday, October 23rd. The proceeds from this fundraiser help McIlvaine offset the cost of field trips and special events held at the school throughout the year. 


*Please remember to bring your photo ID when you stop in for lunch or to sign out your child. It is important that we are able to verify who is picking up or visiting a child in our building. We appreciate you adhering to this rule to help keep the students at McIlvaine safe! 

*Make sure that there is an adult or someone of babysitting age present to receive your child when they get off the bus in the afternoon. 

*Contact the office whenever you have a change in your contact information. It is critical that we have the most up to date phone number for you and for all of your emergency contacts. 

*Please talk with your child about the fire drill that we had a school on Wednesday, September 30th. Stress to them the importance of listening to their teacher and not talking with their friends. Also, although the alarm is loud, it is important that they not cover their ears. They need to be able to hear important instructions from the adult in charge.

Rider Pride Shoelaces
Your child should be learning to tie his / her shoes. Shoe tying is an important readiness skill and it makes playing safer for students. We want all of the students at McIlvaine ECC to know how to tie their shoes. Once your child knows how to tie his / her shoes, your child will come to school and demonstrate this skill to his / her teacher. Once the teacher sees the child tie his / her shoes successfully, the student will be sent to the office to receive a pair of blue and gold “Rider Pride” shoelaces from the principals. Happy practicing!

Box tops, Campbell's Labels, and Capri Sun Pouches
Don’t forget to remind your family, friends, and neighbors to collect Boxtops, Campbell’s labels, and Capri Sun pouches for our school. Boxtops and Campbell’s labels must be cut along the dotted line and show the expiration date. Capri Sun pouches need to be emptied of all juice and dried with a paper towel. Please send these items to school with your child…the more we collect, the more we can do for our students.
