If your child was here last year at Watson Chapel and they have not received the Summer PEBT ($391) please call 833-316-5455 (PEBT call center). If they say that your child is not on the list, let me know ASAP. I need to turn the list of students missing their Summer PEBT on Friday. This is only for the Summer PEBT - I know they are still processing School Year PEBT. Paula Bailey, firstname.lastname@example.org or 870-515-4090
Small Bites Pediatric Dentistry will be on the Coleman campus on Friday, January 27 to provide a FREE dental clinic to place sealant on cavity-prone teeth for our students who have not seen a dentist in 12 months or more. If a student has seen a dentist in the last 12 months, Small Bites will still provide a screening and fluoride treatment for free. For them to provide this service, we need 50-75 students to participate. This service is provided by grants funded from the CDC and Arkansas Dept of Health. Please fill out the form sent home with your child and return to the school nurse by January 11, 2023. If you have questions or need an additional form, call Nurse Sullivent at 870-550-4646.

On December 1, 2022, Watson Chapel High School held its 1st Nine Weeks Awards Ceremony in the school auditorium. Student accomplishments were highlighted in (3) categories: All A’s, A&B Honor Roll, and Merit List. Chelsea Jackson and Henry Webb, Jr. (UAPB recruiters) were the keynote speakers. They did an excellent job motivating the students to continue to strive for academic excellence and stressed the importance of planning for the next steps in their futures. Superintendent Tom Wilson showed support by addressing the students with encouraging words and challenged them to continue to put in the hard work at school to ensure a bright future. The students were also presented with certificates and snacks. The snacks were provided by our school's volunteer ministerial team.
Missing Summer PEBT benefits: If you have not received the $391 Summer PEBT benefits, please call the PEBT Call Center at 833-316-2421. If they say your student "is not on the list" let me know and I will resubmit their information. If they are on the list, my resubmitting the name could cause confusion and delay. So make sure they are not on the list first. COVID PEBT Absences: These have not yet been processed. We do not know the exact timeline but they will not likely go out before winter break. Paula Bailey, Food Service Director: 870-515-4090 or email@example.com

Today Watson Chapel Schools had their Thanksgiving Lunches. It was wonderful to get to see our students and families . And a big thank you to the cafeteria staff for preparing our Thanksgiving Meals. Our Edgewood staff added some additional fresh veggies for families and kids to pick up if they wanted some. Brightens up the tray and gives a nice extra crunch.
Watson Chapel Cafeterias will be serving Thanksgiving meals on Friday, November 11th. Family members who want to come in and eat with their 1st, 2nd or 4th graders should RSVP with their schools. Adult meals are $5.00. You can pay at the door but RSVPing would help us know how much to prepare. Christmas meals will be on Friday, Dec. 9th and families may come in to eat with kindergarteners, 3rd and 5th graders. Since 6th graders don't have a holiday family meal, we are looking at doing a spring meal for them. If you have any questions, please contact Paula Bailey at 870-515-4090 or firstname.lastname@example.org
