      • Below is an opportunity for the community to recognize an outstanding teacher or staff member!

        VFW Chapter 7829 - Monument would like to recognize deserving teachers at the K-12 level for their significant accomplishments in the classroom. At our local chapter level, we have the means to award teachers at the elementary, middle, and high school level with a check for $300 to the top teacher at each of the three school levels. Parents, principals, and fellow teachers are encouraged to nominate deserving teachers who instill a sense of national pride in students over the course of the school year.

        Those teachers who are selected for the three cash awards will then have their package forwarded to the next higher levels within VFW for additional consideration of awards.

        Deadline: Submit to local VFW Post by October 31; nomination form

      • Why should you apply for Free & Reduced Lunch?

        We hope your school year has started off well! We wanted to reach out one more time to express the importance of the Free and Reduced Lunch program and encourage any families whose income qualifies to apply. This program is truly about more than meals, and I've attached a graphic to help represent all the benefits to your family. 
        As a reminder: 
        • If you believe your situation qualifies for free and reduced lunch, please apply for that option by filling out the form here: https://www.lewispalmer.org/Page/4285. It’s important that our families take advantage of this opportunity at all levels.
        • The U.S. Department of Agriculture extended its free lunch program to all of our elementary school students regardless of family income level into the 2021-2022 school year. Please continue to fill out the free and reduced lunch form if you qualify. 
        Thank you and please reach out to Nutritional Services if you have any questions.

      • Inclement Weather Dismissal

        *Please return your Early Dismissal form back to your child's classroom teacher as soon as possible.  We do not have the ability to call all parents, so this information is critical.

        *If it is raining or lightning, our dismissal will look a little different as we keep all students inside.

        Walkers/Bike Rider Information

        *We would ask parents to please wait outside a few feet from the door to help our visibility if you are picking up a walker/bike rider.

        *If you have a kindergartener or first grader who is a walker/bike rider and has an older sibling, please pick up the kinder or first grader on the east side, before coming to the front to pick up the sibling.

        *We are going to group the students by letter of the alphabet so families stay together.

        *We will ask parents their students' last name and we will either find your students.

        *We realize some students need to walk/ride home regardless of the weather.  We will be holding them until the lightning passes.

        **We are unable to release children to neighbors without your permission.

        Car Line Information

        *Whether you pick up your car rider on east or west side, the procedure is the same.  Staff members will walk from car to car, asking for your last name, and then they will walkie into the school where children are safely waiting.  Your child will be sent out as soon as it is safe.

        BCES YMCA Child Care Information

        Before & After School Care
        Children absorb knowledge, skills and values from everything and everyone around them. At the Y, we believe time well spent in a fun, safe and supportive environment before and after school is a primary building block for quality of life and future success of children. Children feel connected at the Y where they can make friends and learn how to be their best with the Y’s values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. We promote positive self-esteem, life skills, teamwork, leadership, creativity, and educational support.
