New Payment Option
You can now use the K12 Payment Center to pay for more than lunch! Sign up to make credit card payments for lunch, field trips, and more!
We are having an increase in lunch debt this year. Please note students who have a lunch balance owed may not be able to get extras from the line until they are cleared on their balance. Please call the school if your child has a balance and you feel you need assistance. Payment of school lunches can be made at school or through the district prepay system. We have paper forms for free and reduced lunch we can share with you.
Friday is the deadline to return forms for the November 26th Dental Bus.
Carolina Photography will be at our school to photograph fall pictures for the yearbook on Thursday, October 24th. Forms will be sent home tomorrow or Friday. If you would like to order pictures, please return the order form and payment with your student on picture day.
For your convenience, you may prepay for the pictures by going to www.paycp.com. Select our school name on the drop-down tab to place your order online. The online prepay will be available until the end of business of the scheduled picture day.
We're wrapping up a great week at Banoak, and I want to remind you that there is no school on Monday!

Thank you to everyone who participated in Coin Wars for United Way. The winners will be announced tomorrow!
Second grade students will travel on a field trip Wednesday. Kindergartners will have a field trip on Thursday.
A few important reminders:
First, the Box Tops for Education program helps Banoak in many ways. Banoak will still accept clipped Box Tops in the office. Box Tops can be found on hundreds of products (clip and scan). Download the app to start scanning to help us reach our goal of $700! Once you download the app, you will have to select Banoak Elementary School directly. If you cannot locate it by name, search using our zip code, 28168. Don’t forget to send in any Box Tops that you have clipped!
Next, please remember to complete InfoSnap. For those who haven't completed the process, you're getting emails/letters almost daily. Please check your spam folder for this information and have it completed. This is a safety issue, as we must have the most up-to-date information for your child in case of emergency. There are also important forms in the registration process, such as COPPA and AUP, that allow your child to access technology at school. Without these permissions, your child cannot use a computer.
Last, please go to the CCS website to apply for free and reduced lunch. We have several students who are accumulating a lot of lunch debt early on. We also have paper forms in the office. This is a wonderful resource for our students and families, and I encourage you to take advantage of it.
We can’t wait to see our Chargers tomorrow!

Catawba County Schools is excited to announce that we are expanding the mental health services that are available for our students. Beginning in the 2017 – 2018 school year, we will contract with Support, Inc. to provide School Based Therapy in all of our schools. Without ever having to leave the school campus, your child can work confidentially with an individual therapist on issues impacting their lives. Support, Inc. can begin the referral process for your child this summer and provide services without delay when school starts back. If your child has previously received school-based therapy services from another provider, you can transfer your services to Support, Inc. this summer as well. Please contact Maria Ballard, Director of Student Services, if you would like additional information or if you have any questions.
