A Publication for HES Staff
Week of October 12th
Hope you've enjoyed the weekend! The weather from Sunday was a gentle reminder that autumn is here.
I was able to return from the RTI conference with new strategies and approaches to help us further support children at HES. On Thursday and Friday, I enjoyed many conversations with teachers and look forward to more.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback regarding today's PD.
SGOs and PDPs
Please remember that SGOs and PDPs are due on 10/30. Let me know how I may support you.
The Halloween Parade will be held on Friday, October 30th at 2:15 p.m. All parents are invited to join us outside.
Kids' costumes should be age-appropriate and items that may be construed as weapons (including plastic swords, guns, etc.) may not be brought to school. Additionally, any costumes that squirt blood should not be worn, as well as costumes from R-rated movies.
4 parents (2 room parents and 2 other parents) will be permitted to attend each homeroom’s Halloween party for the purpose of coordinating Halloween-related events. Homeroom teacher will then provide his/her list to the main office. Halloween parties are for students. We are asking that younger siblings remain at home and school-aged siblings remain within their homerooms.
Parents who have been identified by classroom teachers to assist with parties must sign-in at the main office. Visiting adults should not wear masks or face paint so that all visitors can be clearly identified. If you wish to take your child home prior to dismissal, please request a sign-out pass in the office when checking in.
Thanks so much for your support.
Take Your Parents to Lunch Day
I will be creating sign-ups for each of you as we did last year – I will transfer the
account to you as we get closer to sign-up time, so you will receive email notifications when parents sign up, and can manage the schedule. Parents will receive a link to sign-up for a conference during the final week of October
If you are a new staff member, please see your mentor, a colleague or me for help.
