APRIL 2018 DISTRICT DISPATCH Please note that we will be having prekindergarten round-up and kindergarten round-up on Friday, April 6, 2018. Prekindergarten round-up will begin at 9:00 a.m. and kindergarten round-up will begin at 10:15 a.m. The elementary office is presently in the process of identifying prekindergarten and kindergarten students for the 2018-19 school year. You don’t need to wait until round-up time to register your child for prekindergarten or kindergarten. If you know that your child or grandchild will be five-years-old on or before September 15, 2018, please call the elementary office to inquire about registering for kindergarten. Our kindergarten program is an all-day program that lasts for the entire school year. If you know that your child or grandchild will be four-years-old on or before September 15, 2018, please call our elementary office and register for prekindergarten. Unlike kindergarten, prekindergarten is voluntary and not required. Our prekindergarten is a half-day program which lasts the entire school year. The members of the Underwood Dollars for Scholars organization will host their seventh annual fried chicken fundraising dinner at UMBA Hall from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 8, 2018. This event will feature fried chicken, a baked potato, green beans, and ice cream. The cost will be $10.00 for ages eleven and up, $7.00 for ages five to ten, and will be free for ages four and under. Take-out orders will be welcome. A silent auction and raffle will be held during the event. Donations of completed baskets or items such as gift cards will help fund scholarships for graduating seniors from Underwood High School. Questions regarding the silent auction should be directed to Sandy Redshaw at sandykared@msn.com or telephone her at (712) 566-9574 or (712) 310-2151. Thank you for your help in supporting this worthy event! Don’t forget that there will be a 1:30 p.m. dismissal on Thursday, March 29, 2018, and no school on Friday, March 30, 2018, or Monday April 2, 2018, because of spring break. Also, there will be no school on Friday, April 20, 2018, because of professional development activities for faculty members.
