Welleby Elementary: Weekly Tidbits

Week of February 1, 2016

Can you Believe it's February??

Greetings Parents,

We are already one month into the new year!! It's definitely crunch time mode as all of our grade levels are focused on helping students meet their end of year standards. We need your help in encouraging your student(s) and holding them accountable for high academic achievement. Please have daily conversations with them about the work they do and set high expectations. Don't allow them to settle! Create a "CAN DO" attitude with them! Believe in them because I do!!

Have a Fantastic Week!
Ms. Haynes
