March 14, 2014 Friday Parent Letter

March 14, 2014

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Happy Friday!  We successfully launched our Targeted Title One After School program on Monday, March 10.  Unfortunately, our Wednesday & Thursday classes were cancelled because we had no school.  We look forward to a full schedule next week.  Please remember to pick up your child on time.  Dismissal is at 5:45pm; students must be picked up no later than 5:50pm.

Reading Month activities continued this week!  Students were delighted with a visit from Dr. Seuss in their classrooms today!  Remember to encourage your child to read every day for at least thirty minutes and record their reading time.  Listening to a story on tape or from a loved one also counts towards their reading time.

Please, make sure your child is present, on time, and rested for our midyear MAP (Measure Academic Progress) assessment March 18th – 28th.  Attendance is always essential for student success.  Thank you in advance for your support.  Data results will be shared at our Parent/ Teacher Conferences.

Parent /Teacher Conferences are March 25th, 27th, and 28th.  If you have not already done so, please complete the conference request form and return Monday March 17th.  This is a very important conference to discuss your child’s progress and goals for next year.

Volunteers are still needed for our “School Closet!”  We have a tremendous amount of clothing to sort and organize for all ages from youth – adult.

We are continuing to enrolling for next year 2014/15.  If you haven’t reserved your child’s placement for next year, please give us a call or return the Letter of Intent.  Help us spread the word we are enrolling Preschool through 6th grade.
