Message from Mrs. Richardson
Dear York Avenue Families,
Walk to School Day was a hit--lots of smiles to be found! What a fun way to start our day! Thanks to everyone who was able to take part in it. I've included some pictures below.
As I visited classrooms this week, I saw students engaged in discussions, students enjoying learning and students following our expectations of 'Be ready, Be responsible, Be respectful' but most importantly, 'Be kind'! Students and staff continue to amaze me with their hard work and dedication to learning.
A few reminders:
- Tuesday, October 12 - Dining Night Out at the Metropolitan
- Thursday & Friday, October 21-22 - Book Fair for students in the YA Library.
- Friday, October 22 - GLOW RUN, 6:00-8:00 pm
- Please send your child to school with a refillable water bottle. With the warm days we're having, the kids are quite thirsty throughout the day.
Also, I wanted to say Happy Indigenous People's Day for Monday! October 11th recognizes their resilience and diversity, and we honor this day with our families and students who identify as Indigenous People!
Virtual Math Night
Attention NPSD Elementary Families!
All North Penn School District families with students in kindergarten through 6th grade are invited and encouraged to attend our Virtual Math Night on Tuesday, October 19th from 6:30 to 7 p.m. Use this link to register for this FREE, virtual presentation.
Virtual Math Night is a chance for families to learn about how NPSD will be using i-Ready this school year. During the virtual meeting, you will find out how i-Ready will help identify student strengths and areas of need, guide personalized learning paths for students, and help them achieve more. You will also learn how i-Ready's mobile apps provide targeted skill instruction to boost student achievement.
Get ready to learn about i-Ready! We hope to see you on October 19th!
Students pledge to run or walk our course at least 4 times (approximately one mile) and ask family and friends to sponsor them as they run.
Pledges can be collected via check (payable to York Ave Home and School) or PayPal. Please include the student’s name, grade and teacher in the comments of your PayPal donation.
