Elementary hosting second Fill-A-Bag Night

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

It's once again the time of year to focus on notebooks, folders and backpacks.

For the second year in a row Forest Park Elementary will be sponsoring its Fill-A-Bag Night.

"We wanted to let (our parents) know this option is available again this year," Title 1 Coordinator Debbie Zimmerman said. "We encourage any Forest Park student to attend."

With this being the second year, Zimmerman is hoping to see a lot of repeat faces from the previous year.

"We had such a wonderful turn out last year and we hope to have just as many, if not more return this year," she said.

The event is scheduled to take place Aug. 10,from 5-7 p.m., in the art room. A parent or guardian must attend to fill out the emergency contact information and enrollment card.

During the evenings events there will not be a time set aside to meet the teacher.

Zimmerman also encourages people to have all the necessary information for filling out emergency contact information and enrollment card, such as the name, address and phone number. If a student is just enrolling then parents are encouraged to bring with copies of birth certificates, shot records, and Social Security Number.

"Kids can come and get school supplies and if they need a back pack then it will be available for them," she said. "Some students last year chose not to get the back pack, but only need the school supplies."

The materials and supplies were purchased with Title One funds, in conjunction with the Forest Park Student Council.

Zimmerman said donations would be taken, but not required.

"This is for the students," she said. "We are hoping to have another successful year."

There will also be another meeting on Aug. 11, from 5-7 p.m., for Kindergarten parents or guardians.

The Kindergarten Parent meeting is to encourage parents and students to meet the teacher and visit the classrooms.

New Kindergarten students that didn't get registered are encouraged to attend and bring all of their records.
