A Letter From Ms. Whitehead
Dear parents, students, staff, and Porter Community, please read the attached letter from Ms. Whitehead. She wants to keep you all informed about the school and what possibly is happening with the new building at Spriggs and Minnieville.
Message from the school nurse: In accordance with the Commonwealth of Virginia and PWCS regulations, ALL CHILDREN ENTERING 6TH GRADE MUST HAVE THE Tdap IMMUNIZATION PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL 2015. Previously, if your child did not turn 11 until after school started, it was permissible to get a doctor's note indicating the child would get the shot when the child turned 11. That is no longer accepted.
Please, try to make an appointment for your child early, as the doctors' offices get very busy at the end of the summer. When your child gets the shot, please bring the immunization documentation to school. I will put it into the file and your child will be ready for school. If a child does not have the immunization by the first day of school 2015, the child will not be allowed to start school. If you have any questions, please call me at school. I will be happy to help you.

Just for students. . . A HOMEWORK SURVEY
We want to monitor our students' homework minutes and ensure that they can have time to participate in extra-curricular activities after an engaging day of learning here at Porter. We have developed a short survey for STUDENTS to complete...telling us the number of minutes they spend doing homework in a single night.
Over time, we will be able to evaluate the number of minutes (by class and by grade level) students spend on homework nightly.
AND….students will have the opportunity to win a FUNKY SOCK PASS!! After a total of 10 homework entries (on different days) a student will earn a pass to wear funky socks on the following Friday. Survey results will be assessed on Friday’s and sock passes will be given out to be used on the next Friday.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Ms. Engelmeier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
