Principal Message

SGR Families,

We survived, and maybe even thrived, during the cold week. We have a busy week of notes, so we’ll just get to it:

  • Goal Setting: If you haven’t yet completed and returned your goal setting sheet with your child, please do so ASAP! We’d love to know what you’re thinking!

  • Be Kind: Our parking lots are always busy, as you are all aware. Unsurprisingly, they are even busier when the temperature is dangerously cold. However, regardless of how busy it gets, and no matter how frustrating it might be at times, there is absolutely no reason for yelling, swearing, or anything else along those lines. Not at kids, not at employees, not at fellow parents, not at all. Please use kind words and treat others with kindness. That’s the example we’re trying to set for all of our kids, including the ones who live in your house. We’re still going to continue asking you to pick up and drop off along the curb, not in the traffic lane, because we want to keep kids safe and traffic moving. Yes, it’s going to be busy on cold days, and yes, it feels miserable to everyone, but yelling at kids or adults isn’t going to change the temperature. In short, please be kind.

  • Giving Hearts: Thanks for all the support last week for Giving Hearts Day! We’ll continue to collect monetary donations through tomorrow, so please consider donating if you can. Remember, this year we’re giving to the Moorhead Legacy Foundation. Check out this great video that our counselor, Ms. Shari, and our K-Kids Leadership group made for it! 

  • SGR Yearbooks: This is your LAST CHANCE to order the 2023 Reinertsen Elementary Memory Book. The cost is $15 and can be paid in the office with checks written to SG Reinertsen PTAC. We have extra flyers in the office if needed. If you want to pay by debit/credit card, please visit the site, search for Reinertsen Elementary, and choose yearbook. Then checkout as a guest. Orders (in the office and online) are due by February 24.

Cheers to a warmer week!

Mr. St. Louis and Mrs. Nagel, principals
