NEWS from the OFFICE
Just a friendly reminder from the office that the students have next Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6 off. This is considered our winter break. This also means that Friday, March 13 is a Tuesday/Thursday Pre-K/K day!!!

A few things that are extremely helpful for the office. The office is very busy at the start/end of the day. If you have a change in plans for your child could you please make sure to try and call us by 3:00pm. As the end of the day is crazy and the teachers are sometimes hard to reach as they are getting students ready for the busses and parent pick-up! What works best for all is if you send a note in with your student to give to the teacher.

Last, but not least, the playground is very muddy right now. Please keep sending the boots along. If the students want to leave the black-top they need to have boots. Please try to remind your children to be careful as it is getting to be a habit to call home for dry clothes!

Weekly Events

While writing this week’s staff update, I shared that I am caught between two feelings right now: Celebrating the fact that it is the last week of February due to this never ending winter, and someone who enjoys life and doesn’t want to wish it away! Nonetheless, March begins in just 6 days…and the spring equinox occurs on March 20!

Keep in mind that parent/teacher conferences are scheduled for March 2,3 and 4. This time for you to meet with your child’s teacher is important for many reasons–and the most important is to support your child growing as a learner and a person and to continue building the relationship between parents/teacher.   Each  conference is limited to 15 minutes, which is not optimal, we realize.  If you feel that you need more time, please arrange to follow up at a later date soon after the conference date.

Here’s to a great week ahead!

  • Mon 2/23 Day 3:  HAPPY MONDAY
  • Tues 2/24 Day 1: Music Therapy:  ECSE, CI in MPR 1:30-3:00 pm; Ciao Bella’s Night Ends!
  • Wed  2/25  Day 2: Marco’s Pizza Night;  Session 2 of Reading Counts
  • Thurs 2/26 Day 3: Happy Thursday
  • Fri  2/27 Day 1: MW PreK/K
