FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Skaggs Families,


We are now finished with the first nine weeks of school. That means that the students have completed their beginning of the year assessments, and teachers have learned about their students' sunshine and clouds, special interests, academic strengths, and areas for growth. The parent-teacher conferences may not supply enough time to discuss everything, but I wanted you to know that targeted instructions have begun already. At the same time, we never underestimate that YOU know your child best, so please know that we welcome your partnership.


Picture Day - 10/15/21

Tomorrow (Friday) is our Picture Day! Skaggs Stars always show up looking pristine on picture days. We look forward to seeing our beautiful children looking their best at carpool tomorrow morning.


Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest

As expected, amazing pumpkins have been coming in this week. These book characters truly promote love for reading, so help encourage your child to decorate their pumpkins as they still have time. The pumpkins are due October 27th.


Principal Award Winners

October entails many character traits, and we are working hard to promote kindness, optimism, and compassion. These words remind me of the first group of Principal Award recipients. They will be invited for a Donuts with the Principals soon.

Wishing you an optimistic October!


Sincerely,


Karen Lee
