Happy New Year! It was a longer than expected vacation and I hope everyone enjoyed it! I have a lot to share today, so please take a moment to read.
I am going to add updates each week about good things that have happened in the school that week.
Right before vacation, we had our first Caring School Community Buddy Time. This is a time where students get together with their cross age buddies to do an activity and work together. It is a really rewarding time for our students to learn from one another and to be more connected within our school community. The next buddy meeting is next Thursday. Ask your student about their buddy!
Give Five to Thrive
Earlier in the year, I asked all parents to make a commitment to give five hours of parental involvement to our school. Parental involvement can have a positive influence on your child and their academic progress. Please consider giving your five hours! I will include opportunities to give those five hours each week in this update.
Our second annual International Night is on Friday, January 24th. If you would like to represent your nation of origin at this really great night, please email Deb Ortiz firstname.lastname@example.org or Yolyett Hohmann email@example.com
Many great things happening as usual with our PTO! The PTO is organizing a book drive to boost classroom browsing libraries. Used books in good condition can be dropped off in the front lobby this week. Books for students ages 4-13, including reference, non-fiction, and chapter books are welcome!
Here is the link for the weekly update
