April 17, 2014 Friday Parent Letter
April 17, 2014
Happy Thursday! It has been a great week following a fantastic and restful Spring break.
A gigantic “THANK YOU” to our GSTEMA parent and grandparent who organized our Parent Closet this week. The clothing has now been arranged by gender and size which is a tremendous help when looking for items to accommodate our students. In addition, THANKS to Mr. Carberry for taking some of our 4th grade male students to the Detroit Pistons basketball game on Sunday. It was thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated.
Please join us in welcoming our newest staff member to GSTEMA. Ms. Naseera Crowder started Monday, April 14 and is our Behavior Intervention Specialist replacing Mr. Majied. Ms. Crowder has been getting acquainted with our staff and students; she is also assisting during lunch/recess times.
Please remember school dismisses daily at 4:00pm. Students are to be picked up from the gym using the back entrance doors. Early pickup should occur only with emergencies. We need everyone to use the back parking lot when picking up your student(s) after school. We are experiencing problems which could lead to accidents. Please, help us keep everyone safe and use the back parking lot. Thank you for your understanding and support.
As the weather is beginning to get warmer, students will be going outside during recess. Please make sure your student is dressed appropriately.
Help us celebrate Earth Week on Wednesday & Thursday, April 23 & 24. Each student brought a flyer home earlier this week (please check their book bag) asking for volunteers to bring shovels and/or rakes to help with the beautification of our school between 4:15 & 5:45pm on those days. Your support is greatly appreciated.
