SOMETHING NEW IS HAPPENING!
Starting Monday, November 30, 2015
students will be allowed to bring earbuds and
handheld electronic devices so they can listen
to music as they walk in the mornings.
Students will only be allowed to listen to
music while walking in the gym if they have
earbuds or small headphones. If students
bring an iPod, iPod mini or cellular devices
they then agree to the condition of having an
adult monitor what they are listening to.
These devices and the music downloaded on
them will be periodically reviewed by the
administration and/or teaching staff. If the
student or parents do not wish to have the
electronic devices periodically checked, then
the student will not be allowed to bring them.
We will also allow students to listen to music
with their personal earbuds during study hall
as long as the volume is low enough not to be
heard by others round them. NO GAMES will
be allowed to be played on these devices.
If students do not have devices to bring from
home, school iPads will be available for
students to use to listen to music, but each
student must supply their own personal
earbuds or small headphones.
Christmas Program – “Merry & Bright”
Mark your calendar for the Wallace Christmas
Program “Merry & Bright” on Tuesday,
December 15th at Adams Central in the
auditorium. Pre-program music will start at
approximately 6:30pm. Students are
encouraged to sign up for instrumental or
vocal solos/groups. For more information
contact Mrs. Lukow. Families are invited to
come to dress rehearsals Monday, December
14th or Tuesday, December 15th from 1:303:00 at Adams Central. The program will start
at 7:00pm.
When students bring their devices to listen to
music, they also agree to place these devices
in their backpack and lockers during the
instructional portion of the day. They bring
these devices with the understanding they
the student is responsible for them while they
are at school. THE SCHOOL IS NOT LIABLE
FOR ANY DAMAGED, LOST OR STOLEN
DEVICE! These devices are the sole
responsibility of the student. If a student or
parent is concerned about damage to, loss of,
or the possibility that devices will be stolen,
then DO NOT BRING them to school.
Happy Holidays!
WALLACE SCHOOL | December 2015
