Believe it or not, we have had just around thirty school days since school began. I wanted to provide you with an update on the meetings we have had with our school room parents. In support of the wellness policy, the room parents decided that there would be three points in the year where there would be food made available for classroom celebrations (Halloween, Winter Break, Valentine’s Day). There will be a request for donations from parents to help purchase food for these events. Additionally, to celebrate birthdays, we will be having lunch with the principal once a month. Students will have a piece of birthday cake and enjoy the ambiance of the principal’s office. There will be an extra recess once a month to promote activity with the students. Without a doubt, I am so appreciative of the time the parents spent with me to formulate reasonable practices in our school. Thank you to our parents for your support in making these changes!
Our first PTA meeting of the year had approximately thirty parents attend. What an outstanding evening! Parents volunteered to participate in helping run activities throughout the school year. Our next meeting is Wednesday, November 9. The first event coming up on the calendar for our students is a movie night planned for Friday, December 9!
We had four parents put their names forward to become members of our School Council and two vacant seats. Two candidates decided to withdraw their names. I would like to welcome Melissa Russell and Matthew Moynihan to the team. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 19. We will be finalizing the School Improvement Plan.
Two quick reminders, if you are dropping your child off after 9:00 AM you must come into the school and sign your child in at the front desk. Please make sure you have dressed your child appropriately for the outdoor weather. We try and send children outside for recess as much as we can and need to make sure they are dressed for this.
We have had an outstanding start to the school year, in part due to the parents who have been volunteering to help out. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of our school!
