Polar Plunge
Penny Wars
Starting: February 2nd
Ending: February 6th
In the morning only 8:40-8:50 a.m.
 
How to play: Each classroom will receive an empty gallon-jug. Each classroom wants to have more pennies than anything else in the jug. The more pennies you have for your class the bigger the chance of winning prize for your classroomJ
 
BUT…. watch out for the silver coins and paper bills. They will take away your pennies earned.
 
For example; if there is 25 pennies in your jug and someone drops in a nickel, you now only have a total of 20 pennies.
 
Rules for play:
  1. An announcement will be made at 8:50 a.m. that students will need to go to their classrooms, jugs will be put away at this time.
  2. No blocking the classroom jug or there will be a 100 cents deducted from your penny total.
  3. If your jug is not visible at all times during penny war hours, the classroom will pass their jug to their grade level opponents to deposit as much silver as they would like too.
  4. The jug should be just outside the classroom door on a chair to avoid classroom chaos.
  5. The class with the most “positive” number of pennies and the class with the largest amount of money collected at the end of the week of “war” will win a prize.
 
Good Luck from the Brendel Ice-Breakers!!!!!

Procedures
 
Morning Drop Off
· We would like the students to start getting themselves out of the cars.
· Make sure you drop them off in the cone marked area.
· Make sure there is an adult out supervising your child.
· Remind them to walk behind the yellow line.
· Remind them to all be careful of moving cars.

End of the Day Procedures
· Discuss with your child(ren) whether they will be riding the bus, going to latchkey or parent pickup…
· Contact your child’s teacher regarding any end of the day routine changes.
· Do not wait until last minute to make changes to end of the day arrangements. This causes a lot of confusion and leaves more room for error.
· Student release times:
·  Bus riders 3:45-3:55
·  Parent car pickup 3:45-4:00
·  Parent walk up 3:58-4:00
· Your child’s safety is always our number one concern.
 

Peanut Policy
Classroom
No peanut or nut foods will be consumed or distributed in any classrooms. This includes daily snacks as well as birthday treats.

Lunchroom
To reduce the risk of exposure to peanut and nut products in the elementary, Grand Blanc Community Schools has decided to remove all obvious peanut and nut products from the elementary menu such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and peanut butter as a condiment.

Students without peanut or nut allergies may consume peanut or nut products for lunch from home but must not eat at a nut free table.


Field Trips
Peanut and nut products are not prohibited, but parents are asked to consider an alternative, nut-free lunch for their child while on a field trip.

Buses
The Grand Blanc Community School District has a policy of no eating or open food on school buses.

The entire policy may be viewed at:  http://board.grandblanc.schoolfusion.us
