Arbor Springs October Newsletter
2017-2018: Continuous Learning and Growth for All!
Our Mission: Arbor Springs Committed to Student Success.
From Dr. D. and Dr. T.
Our awesome PTA has been hard at work preparing for Gator Run this week! Please keep sending in those pledges and know how much we appreciate what YOU and what our PTA contribute to Arbor Springs! Each day, PTA tallies up our total pledges each day and takes the prize patrol out to visit classrooms. Check out some photos of our dads helping out with prize patrol below! This fundraiser is our BIGGEST fundraiser and helps pay for curricular resources such as Accelerated Reader, Brainpop, Tumblebooks, and more. The actual run is this Thursday, October 5. We would love to have you come out and join the fun, and notice the signage in the car rider line recognizing our fabulous sponsors!
We continue to work on our goals for ELA and math. We are planning an upcoming curriculum night where we will share some information with you about reading and writing expectations by grade level. Please plan to join us in the cafeteria on October 17th. We will show you some samples of reading passages by Lexile, examine some writing prompts, look at achievement level descriptors, and share some examples of excellent writing. Please plan to join us at 6:30 PM in the cafeteria.
We have made some changes to Grandparents' Day this year. Specifically, since we have had such wonderful participation, we decided to split it into two days. Also, due to parking difficulties, we are moving it to lunch instead of breakfast. Look for a flyer soon, but here are the key details: If your grandchild is in pre-k, kindergarten, grade 2, or grade 3, they will have the opportunity to have lunch with grandparents on November 10, after which they can go to the media center to check out the book fair. If your grandchild is in grade 1, 4, or 5, lunch will be on Monday, November 13. Grandparents who have children in more than one grade can choose a day to have lunch--we will send home a reservation form later in the month for you to sign up. We hope this will bring some added convenience and safety to our celebration of grandparents!
Hope you are having a wonderful start to fall! See you soon!
