Weekly Updates and Reminders

September 11, 2022 Weekly STAR Family Updates

Good afternoon STAR Families. This is Mrs. Traumuller, the Morehead Principal, with the updates and reminders for the week ahead!

We would like to start today with a message of remembrance of 9-11 to all of those who lost a loved one on this anniversary of a terrible tragedy for our nation.

This week is busy so get out your calendar. Tomorrow we will begin our week with our Fall pictures. The picture schedule is tight and will start first thing after arrival. Please have your STAR student to school on time and ready to go with any orders that you wish. Our school website has a link for ordering if you did not get the paper order form.

Our third graders will take their Beginning of Grade (BOG) test on Tuesday. This is the first of their testing windows and an important day for them. Please make sure that they go to bed early and come to school with their devices fully charged. We look forward to our Kindergarten STARS getting all of their necessary forms turned in no later than September 29th. As a reminder, we must have on file your NC Health Assessment as well as your vaccination records prior to the deadline given to us by the state.

Please join us with celebrating our very own Gary Kight! He is a county finalist for the Rookie Teacher of the Year award. The winner will be announced on Thursday, September 15th, and we are sure that Mr. Kight will bring home a win for the Morehead STAR Family - but have it be known - he is certainly already a winner in our hearts!

Please note that in the event that one of our STAR students tests positive for COVID, we will need communication immediately to the school so that we can correctly code the absence as well as submit the information to the county data base. There is still a mandatory five day isolation period and then the following five days are required mask with return to school. Thank you for your support with getting all of the needed information turned in timely.

Message from Morehead PTA:
This week PTA will kick off the Stars on the Run Sponsorship Campaign. The PTA needs sponsors so we can see stars shine with our new digital sign!
Do you know of a local business or family that might want to sponsor our Star PTA?! Please share the sponsorship link so they can
lock in a sponsorship level! A few sponsorship perks include, helping PTA get a
new digital sign, company logo on website, social media, event signage on
banner/running bib/cone sponsor, and on the event t-shirt!
Check your child's book bag this week for a PTA bookmark
that has the sponsorship QR code and link that you can
text to businesses and families! The deadline is October 7th to lock in the
sponsorship level!
On the back of this bookmark PTA has listed
dates and events that you will not want to miss! Save the date for the PTA International Night on October 6th! PTA is seeking families who would like to be an ambassador by
hosting a table to share your own culture or enthusiasm for a country or place
that has special meaning to you! Sign up on this Jotform link.

All PTA news and latest PTA meeting minutes can
be found on the Morehead website.

Important dates to mark on your calendar are:
Sept. 12th is our FALL PICTURE DAY.
Sept. 16th all Arts Academy Registrations are DUE

That is all that I have for you today. We look forward to seeing all of our STARS tomorrow morning, beginning at 7:20 am. Have a great evening.
