LUNCHROOM/PLAYGROUND HELP

Are you looking for a fun way to make a little extra money while having fun with our terrific Quincy students? We have the perfect job for you! We are in need of a lunch/recess supervisor.

The hours are 11:45am-1:15pm, Monday through Friday. If you are interested, please email Allyson Apsey at aapsey@zps.org. Thank you!

THANK YOU FOR THE MITTEN DONATIONS!

Quincy families were generous as usual! We are so excited package up the mittens and gloves to send off to Hand2Hand. They will be distributed to ZPS students in need. Thank you so much!

PESKY CRITTERS

Please encourage your child not to share their hat with other students. The best defense against unwanted critters in your student’s hair is to check his/her head weekly. Head lice is a common problem during the colder weather in Michigan. Catching it early is our best defense against lice. The link below will lead you to a publication that the State of Michigan published about Head Lice.

MITTEN DRIVE

The Quincy Student Leadership Team needs your help. These fourth and fifth graders want to show the Quincy spirit during this holiday season by gathering new mittens and gloves to distribute to local students in need through Hand2Hand.

We are collecting new mittens and gloves through Thursday, December 21st!

WINTER WEAR

Now that colder weather is upon us, it sure can get cold on the Quincy playgrounds! Students benefit from time outside, even when it is chilly. Our students go outside for recess unless the temperature is below an actual 10 or the wind chill is less than -10. Please be sure to send your student with a warm winter coat, hat, boots and gloves. When snow arrives, snow pants will be needed. Avoid searching through the “Lost & Found” by remembering to label everything!

LIBRARY VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP
