Other Bits of Information
Legal Parking at Sowams: There is plenty of legal parking at Sowams and the neighborhood surrounding Sowams. Please make sure you are parked legally. This includes only using the handicapped parking spots in the parking lot if you have a placard indicating you can park in these spots. Running in the school for a minute does not mean you can park in these spots without the placard. Also, please do not park on neighbors’ lawns or the school’s lawn at the entrances and exits of the lots.
Peanut/Tree Nut Free Classrooms: If your child is in Mrs. Howard, Mrs. Squatrito, Mrs. Felag, Mrs. Piette, or Mrs. Fagan’s classrooms, you child cannot bring peanut/tree nut snacks to eat at the morning snack time. Please make sure you child knows what snack they can eat in their classrooms. If the label indicates the food may have been made in a facility with peanut/tree nuts, they cannot each these for snacks. These foods can only be eaten in the cafeteria during lunch.
Library Volunteers: If you are interested in volunteering in the school’s library on Wednesdays during the school day, we are in need. Questions about volunteering in the library can be directed to Mrs. Greene at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SIT Volunteers: Sowams is also looking for three parents to join our School Improvement Team. If you are interested in participating on this team, click here for information about the Team and for the application. Please sign up by September 15, 2018. This group will meet monthly. I will make the final selection of the parents in order to make sure we have a diverse group of parents representing our students.
