From the Principal:
Another great start to a wonderful year! As the weather cools down a bit, I know you are as excited as I am to be waking up to cooler mornings! Labor Day weekend marks the end of the summer travel season. Hope you have some exciting plans for the three day weekend ahead.
MAP and DRA testing kicks off next week for our students and will continue through the month of September. Parents, please make sure that our bobcats are getting to bed and getting their rest each night. Not just in their beds, but lights out and television/games off! Their brains need time to rest and rejuvenate.
Please mark your calendar for our Parent Orientation, scheduled for Sept. 10th. However, if you are needing to contact your child’s teacher now to schedule a conference, don’t hesitate to do so. Childcare will be provided. Children under 3 years of age will need to remain with parents.
Our school day begins at 7:30am and ends at 2:30pm. If your child arrives to class after 7:40am, they are considered late. Early pickups are discouraged unless students have an appointment. We only have a designated amount of time with our precious students and want to use every teachable moment. Thanks also for remaining in your cars and following procedures during our morning drop off and afternoon dismissal. Following procedures keeps our bobcats safe and assures that everyone is being a team player. It is important that we are role models for our children. If you are seeing students in the morning that are getting out of their cars prior to 7:10, they are our morning news crew and safety patrol students. They are taking their jobs very seriously and we are so proud of them.J
Our fall book fair kicks off on next Friday, Sept. 4th. Grandparents to lunch week will take place beginning the Tuesday after Labor Day. Forms were sent home earlier this week. It’s not too late to send in an RSVP.
Along with the newsletter today is a flyer about our “Little Free Library.” Your participation is welcomed and appreciated with this worthwhile project.
Please come in to volunteer whenever you can, we’d love to have you.
Together we can do great things!
