Free and Reduced Lunch Reminder!

This is just a reminder to parents and guardians whose students receive benefits under the Free and Reduced Lunch program.  Free and reduced lunches will stop on September 30th if the Application for Free and Reduced Lunch has not been turned in.  Forms are available in school offices.  Those who received Direct Certified Letters do not need to reapply.   If you have any questions, please contact Gail Musser @ 330-673-9591 ext. 5047


Online Sign Up for Fall Conferences

Please click on the link to sign up for a time slot for Fall Conferences at Suffield Elementary.  Conferences will be Nov 6th & 13th from 4:30-8:00.  Please call the office or contact your child's teacher with questions.


Parent Internet Viewer (PIV)

Children in 1st – 5th Grade brought home information on the Parent Internet Viewer.  This is a way that you can check your child's grades throughout the year.  It allows you to see grades on a daily basis (if desired).  It can be accessed through the www.fieldlocalschools.org  website under the Parent tab.  This is a great way to stay up to date on your child's progress on a more regular basis.  Because of this, there will be no paper interim report sent home with your child.  You will still receive a report card at the end of each 9 weeks period.  If you do not have internet access to use the PIV, you can contact the office and an interim report will be generated. 


Picture Day

Look for fall picture forms to be coming home soon!  Pictures will be taken on Thursday, October 2nd.  We will do the group “stand up” pictures like we did last year, so if your child is absent on picture day, he/she will not be in the class picture.  If you would like to place your order online before picture day, please visit www.mylifetouch.com.  Retakes will be November 13th.


STAR Report

If you have children in K – 5th grade you are also receiving the STAR report of your child's most recent performance on the diagnostic assessment.  You DO NOT have to return this report to school, even though it asks for your signature.  This is your copy to keep.  This report will help you see where your child is at this time.  Remember this is a short snapshot of his/her performance at the beginning of the year.  Teachers will use these reports to guide individualized instruction for your child, so that each child makes a full year's growth each year.  One word of caution when viewing your report.  Often the Grade Equivalent is misleading to parents.  If your child is in grade 3 and receives a score of 4.5 grade equivalent, it does not mean your child should be in grade 4.  This means that your child did as well on the test as a typical 4th grade student in the 5th month of school would do on that very same test.  Your teacher will be able to explain this report in detail at the upcoming conferences in November.  


Chess Club

Calling all 3rd – 5th grade students who are interested in learning how to play chess.  Mr. Apitz, a parent volunteer, will be leading our chess club this year, on Thursdays from 3:30 – 4:30 in the library.  Chess club will begin on October 1st and go through February 5th.  The fee to participate will be $20, which includes a t-shirt.  Registration forms were sent home last week.  If you need another one, please call the office. 


The Cinderella Ball is Coming!

 Tale As Old As Time!

The 15th annual Cinderella Ball will be on November 8th, from 5:30-9:00 p.m. at Field Middle School.  Ticket and t-shirt orders are due October 20th. Don't miss out!
