Myers-Wilkins Wolf Tracks

December 2016 - Issue 4

Greetings!


The holiday season is in full swing. We have had our first snowfall and the weather is getting colder. Winter is here! Just a reminder to send your student(s) with a labeled coat, hat, mitten/gloves. If you need support with this please contact Laura or Seiquayia at ext. 2501. Also remember to check the lost in found if your child has lost a piece of clothing.


We had a great family night in November. It was our Tellebration Family Night. We were able to hear lots of great stories from guests and our students. What a fantastic night full of smiles and laughter for all who attended.


We are excited to see our Holiday Program on December 16th. All are welcome to come and be a part of it. Performance times are at 9:00 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. Our students are working hard to provide you the best performance.


I am so proud of our students. They are working hard and have been doing lots of learning. Everywhere I look I see all their hard work proudly displayed.


Tis' the season for acts of kindness. We are teaching our students what kindness looks like, sounds like and feels like during morning meeting. It can be a smile, thank you or being helpful in any way. Continue to work with your child on this and how they can spread kindness to others.


Thank you for all you do for your child(ren) here at Myers-Wilkins. We appreciate your support. I hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday Season. We will see you in the New Year!

What is our PBIS focus for December?

The month of December at Myers-Wilkins is going to fly by! We are looking forward to sharing many educational, fun, and special activities with your child. As we continue to focus on positive behavior and supports for kids, we are working on implementing a purpose statement for our school. Staff are working collaboratively to create a statement that fits our school and complements the work we do and the ideals we have at Myers-Wilkins.


Once we return to school in January, we will be reviewing the school-wide rules and expectations for each area in our school. Our school-wide rules are in place so that students and staff can be successful and respectful to one another and to make sure that learning is taking place. We are also tentatively scheduled for a fun and educational assembly in January. Watch for more information to come out about that.


Have a peaceful and blessed holiday season.

Parent Student Advisory Council

Myers-Wilkins has a very active and inclusive parent group. The meetings will be held on the second Tuesday of each month. There will be a snack and childcare provided. Mark your calendars!!! Our third PSAC meeting will be on December 13th. We would like as many parents as possible to be a part of this group. We will have a set agenda. The PSAC meeting will be from 5:00-6:30 p.m. in the media center. If you are not able to come to the meeting we are looking for volunteers in our building. Please stop by the office or give us a call and we can connect you to help out and be active here at Myers-Wilkins. We look forward to seeing you there!
