Field Trip Reminder
Field trips are a loved privilege for West VIllages students. These are opportunities for students to engage content in new and experiential sorts of ways. Whether regrouping numbers by keeping score at bowling, or investigating habitats, or going to a real fire station to see how our community service people do their jobs, our field trips are not fluffy, and they are designed to marry fun with learning. To do this effectively and safely we need the help of parents. Please remember the following in order to keep everyone safe:
rules. Making unilateral decisions to go about something in a different way creates distraction and impairs the teacher's ability to maintain instruction and safety.
We very much appreciate parents coming on field trips. Please help us out for the learning and safety of all.
Our last birthday lunch is Monday. The
theme will be “getting older”. Students
may dress as the adult they would most
like to be when they grow up. This adult
can be living or not, and they may choose
not to dress up if they would like. It is just a little bit of fun for their special lunch.
Next week is spirit week. You should have received a blue paper earlier this week with details.
Monday- Crazy Hair Day
Tuesday- Pirate Day
Wednesday- Career Day
Thursday- Dress to Impress in Red,
White & Blue
Friday - Mismatch Day
As a result of our fabulous fund raising and the support of our School Committee, we will soon be installing 4 fitness stations on our playground. This is part of how we are using the funds raised at our annual Boosterthon.
On June 14th, our school will have a Flag Day presentation. We are fortunate to have members of the town here to celebrate with us. This is a Kindergarten show, with special appearances from other grade levels. Due to space and safety requirements, I can only invite Kindergarten parents. If you have children in other grades they will get to see the show, but I will not be able to invite parents of other grade levels due to space limitations and fire code.
Class Placement and notifications for next year
We are working currently on placements for next year's classes. We will continue to finalize these over the summer and will be notifying you of your child's teacher during the first week of August. Many things change over the summer and I won’t have a final placement for your child until that time.
Please remember to send an email to email@example.com with any changes to dismissal plans.
Have a great weekend!
