November 7, 2014 Friday Parent Letter

November 7, 2014

Happy Friday:

Progress reports for the 2nd marking period were sent with your child today.

We had a fantastic week for learning!!  Students have been engaged and working well collaboratively.  Have a discussion with your student during the weekend to find out more.  Congratulations to several GSTEMA students who were recognized with new book bags for good citizenship during the month of September.  ‘Thank You’ to Kettering’s National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) for donating these book bags that were filled with school supplies.

You are invited to join us on Tuesday, November 11 for our Parent Ambassador meeting at 3:45pm in the library.  Please attend to receive important information and share ideas.  We ask for your assistance to participate in programs that will benefit both students and parents at Genesee STEM.

As the weather is getting colder, please remember to have your student dressed appropriately.  We will be going outside so it is important for them to have the necessary garments that will keep them comfortable.  Unfortunately, we have had three cases of strep throat reported; if your child has a temperature and/or vomiting, please keep them home and notify the office.  Remind students to take extra precautions and make sure they are washing their hands.

Picture Re-take is scheduled for Wednesday, November 12th beginning at 9am.  Students requesting a re-take must return their full package.  Class composites will be given out after re-takes have been completed. 

Please remember our dismissal procedures have been revised to increase safety and organization for our students.  Students for pick-up will be in the gym for dismissal at 3:30pm.  Parents requesting an early dismissal must report to the office.  Students will be called to the office for sign out.  We appreciate only for emergency reasons that a student is requested to leave early.  Early dismissal interferes with their instructional time, and must be limited.

Classroom visitation will be open from 9am-3pm.  Parents/guardians must sign in and have a visitor pass to visit classes.  Parents, who would like to speak with a teacher concerning their child, should arrange a conference.
