Greetings to the Britt Elementary School Community!
It is evident that we are in the single digit countdown for the last day of school. Excitement and anticipation are in the air. Both children and adults are looking forward to summer fun that follows that last day of school. However, we must NOT forget that the remaining days, hours, and minutes with Britt Comets are for instruction. Yes, the remaining instructional days are to be planned for instruction that will help each child be more successful academically. It is also important to maintain the same good behavior expectations that have made this a successful school year. Field days are planned for this week, and this will be a great time for your students to enjoy organized activities. Recess must be supervised carefully by teachers every day. Please limit movies to one between now and the end of the school year. We can all be very proud of this good school year. I am sure you and your students will make the end of the school year a good one as well.
During last week's Meet and Greet, we enjoyed getting to meet teachers and staff members who will be joining the 2016-2017 Britt Team. The excitement to be a part of this wonderful team was unmistakable. Plans continue to be made to make the 2016-2017 another excellent year of learning at Britt Elementary. At the same time, we are ending the 2015-2016 school year and wishing our friends the very best as they begin opportunities at other schools or begin their retirement careers. To those of you who are leaving us, I can't thank you enough for your remarkable years of service and for your love for all in the Britt community. Next week we will have a celebration of your years of service. Enjoy these last days of the school year with your dear friends.
Let me know how I can best support your good work at Britt Elementary School as we all strive together using effective, innovative practices to transform and personalize teaching and learning.
With warmest regards,
Britt Elementary School, going strong in 2016!
Another huge thank you goes to Cheldon Montgomery and Sandy Grizzard for facilitating the 2016 Britt Inventory! Thank you to all Britt faculty and staff members for your good work making the inventory go so well.
Kay Brickley and Lisa Brown, thank you for planning and facilitating an engaging and fun Meet and Greet on Tuesday afternoon! Thanks to all who contributed delicious desserts!
Reminder: Be sure to remind parents they must check out their children in the front office if they plan to take them home following field day events. Do not send students to the office with their parents. The office will call to the classroom for students to be checked out. Thank you so much for your help in this matter.
