Supply List

Commerce Bank's Summer Reading Program encourages young people to read and additionally provides a goal for them to learn the importance of saving. Commerce contributes $10 into a new or existing young savers account for each child who reads 10 books during the summer months. The Summer Reading Program runs June 1 through September 1, 2007. For more information, visit the nearest Commerce Bank store for a reading brochure or CLICK HERE to download.
For Kids:

From the Daily Times 7/25/07: Free collars for cat owners in Ridley Park
A roundup of stray cats is due this fall, but not before felines who have owners receive a free red collar, courtesy of the borough, to make sure they don't wind up at the pound. Councilman Mike Wright said the free collars will be given away at 9:00 am Sept 15, 2007 at the borough hall. The collars will be numbered and a registry will be on file at the borough hall. Wright said packs of wild cats seem to be a problem in the fourth precinct. After the pet cats are properly identified, the wild cats will be trapped and taken to the SPCA.

Kindergarten Orientation will be held on Wed, August 29, 2007.
(Note the change in date from the checklist you received at the screening in April.)
During the summer you will receive a letter telling you which session
and teacher your child will have. We will meet in the Gym Room.
Morning Orientation 9:30 am     Afternoon Orientation 1:30 pm
(Note the PM Orientation was changed from 1:00 to 1:30.)
A Parent and the Kindergartner should attend the meeting.

The screenings for Kindergarten take place in April.
New students will either be screened before school starts or soon after school begins.
Call the Lakeview Office for an appointment.
