Wow, we have completed a trimester already! This first one always goes by fast because it’s packed with activities that support getting to know all the children and families. Relationships are the foundation of an effective learning environment. I hope you are connected to the weekly e-news, have shared your email with your child’s teacher, and are checking the Wednesday folder each week. I also hope you’ve attended at least one dining-out fundraiser, didn’t miss Back to School Night or the carnival, and had a productive conversation at your teacher conference.
I’m grateful to the PTA and Dads’ Club for their commitment to organizing such a variety of fabulous opportunities to get together.
Your next “don’t miss” event is the State of the School and Parent Education Workshop Night in January. During the event, I’ll give an update on school data and goals. We’ll also have workshops on a variety of topics to help you support your child. The workshops, which are sponsored by the School Site Council, will be led by teachers. I look forward to seeing you there, and I hope you stay connected throughout the year.
