Holiday Cheer

It is hard to believe that it is already time to get started on our holiday assistance program!

Today, holiday cheer informational parent letters and student sign-up forms were put in your boxes. These letters were addressed to parents of students we helped last year, to parents that requested assistance and to parents of our "BackPack Buddies". This year we are requiring that all participating families attend a parent-teacher conference. We hope this will increase involvement!

As always, we need sponsors to shop, wrap and purchase gifts for our students. If you are interested in sponsoring a student this year, please write your name on the sign-up sheet in the mail room. Student sizes and wish lists will be available for pick up beginning November 20th.

If you have any questions, please see me. We hope to make this year even more successful than last!

Attendance Intervention

This year, I am working with 2-5 graders who missed 15 or more school days last year with the goal of improving their attendance. Students will check in with me as soon they arrive at school in the morning. I will also meet with these students once a month in small groups during lunch. Please put returned permission forms in my box and see me if you have any questions.
