AMERICAN EDUCATION WEEK VISITATIONS

Schools across the country will celebrate American Education Week from November 14th through November 18th. The National Education Association’s annual tagline, “Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility,” is intended to highlight the importance of bringing together teachers, school staff, parents, students, and communities in a unified effort to build great public schools. To celebrate this partnership, we are inviting parents to join us to visit their child’s classroom and see education in action. We hope you can reserve time to visit your child’s classroom on either Tuesday, November 15th (cycle day 4), or Wednesday, November 16th (cycle day 5) during the following timeframes:



Ashbrook Elementary School: 9:15 – 11:15 a.m. and/or 1:15 – 2:45 p.m.

Bobby’s Run School: 8:15 – 10:15 a.m. and/or 1:15 – 2:45 p.m.

Lumberton Middle School: 8:15 – 10:15 a.m. and/or 1:15 – 2:45 p.m.



Please show ID and sign in as you enter the building. They will help direct you to your child’s classroom. Chairs will be provided in the back of the classroom. Our students have a sense of pride when they see their parents in school. Please enter quietly and try to be non-intrusive. Infants and preschool age children may not accompany parents for these visits and use of cameras and video-taping is prohibited. We also ask that you refrain from using your cell phone.



We look forward to seeing you next week.
