Please make sure to link your Food City card with Philadelphia Elementary School by using our school code: PLU#40650 so we can earn Food City School Bucks. The Food Bucks program helps us earn money for school supplies and equipment. When you go shopping, please show the cashier this code and they will link it to your Food City Card or towards your purchase which then carries over to Philadelphia Elementary School. You can also link your Food City Card to Philadelphia School by going to my.foodcity.com. Flyers went home in Purple Folders, but you can always get another in the front office. IMPORTANT: You must link your card every school year, because it doesn’t carry over from year to year.
This folder contains weekly grades, newsletters, important school and class announcements, etc. It requires a parent signature and needs to be returned on Tuesday each week.
DAILY AGENDA SIGNATURE
Parents are asked to sign the student’s agenda/planner daily. The agenda/planner is a valuable tool to keep parents informed of what students are learning every day and also to help keep students on track with any homework that might be due the next day.
