Living on Cape Cod, we are fortunate to have such a beautiful climate for our children to enjoy the outdoor weather. With that weather brings my annual reminder about appropriate attire for recess. We have asked in the student handbook that students not wear open toe shoes (sandals, flip flops) for their own safety here at school. The wood fiber that surrounds our recess equipment is not a problem unless students are wearing open toe shoes. Please make sure your child is coming to school wearing the proper footwear so they can safely play and not get wood fiber between their toes.
Our annual Spaghetti Supper is taking place this Friday night. I want to extend a very big thank you to all of our parents who have contributed time and donations to the supper. This event helps replenish to PTA coffers so that we do not have to put all of the expenses associated with field trips onto our families. Your support and efforts to make this event a success are so appreciated. We are fortunate to have such a great group of PTA parents. Many of our parents are leaving Centerville this year so if you are new to our school, we are going to need your involvement to help keep the PTA vibrant and moving forward for years to come. Please consider coming to a meeting and get involved for the up and coming school year!
It is teacher appreciation week and I want to acknowledge the hard working staff here at Centerville. We are fortunate to have a staff of dedicated professionals who care deeply about the children who walk through our doors on a daily basis. In my role here as principal, I truly am blessed to work with people who put their students at the forefront of all that they do.
I want to remind you all of the community forums that are being held about the recommendations made to the School Committee about school start time. Part of the process of getting feedback on these recommendations will be through these community forums. We are rescheduling our next PTA meeting to May 24th so that there is no conflict. The forums are May 10th and 17th at 6PM at the Junior/Senior Cafeteria at Barnstable High School. This is an opportunity to gain further information about why the School Committee is exploring this, and to hear feedback from the community. These are recommendations, and it is important to have your voices heard on this topic.
I look forward to seeing you at the Spaghetti Supper!
