November 21, 2014 Friday Parent Letter
November 21, 2014
Happy Friday Parents/Guardians:
Genesee STEM Academy brain break for students begins Monday, November 24th through Friday, November 28th. School will resume Monday, December 1st.
Today, our students celebrated the culture of our Native Americans with various exciting activities around the school. In addition, today is the end of our 1st Trimester and 2nd Marking Period.
We have had some extremely cold days this week; please remember to have your student dressed appropriately, especially those waiting to ride the bus. Some of our students are wearing hats and gloves to school however they misplace them once they get here. Remind your child to check in their classroom or the lost and found in the main office and in the gymnasium.
The Caring Creative Citizens after school program is partnering with the North End Soup Kitchen. We will be selling wall ornaments for $1 each. You can purchase the ornament cards from Mrs. Blaharski in room 9 or from your child’s classroom teacher. You will be able to put your name on the ornament and the ornament will be displayed in the hallway near the front office. We will also be working to raise money for the Hometown Home Health and Hospice. This organization hosts events such as their Lights for Love event supporting an individual in the state of Michigan that is chronically or terminally ill. We are hosting a Penny Drive Competition among our classrooms. The winning classroom will receive a Pizza Party. Don’t worry we will have a small prize for the other classrooms. Please help us to donate to this great cause!
Looking ahead at Genesee STEM Academy:
