Dear River Mill Families,
November is here! Thank you for providing your child with appropriate shoes, clothes and jackets on these cold, dreary days. It makes a huge difference for our students when they are outside for recess.
This month brings an adjusted schedule, so please be watching our updates that outline what the week's calendar is like. Our book fair is taking place next week, and thank you to Debbie Tubbergen, our school librarian for organizing this event, and even extending the hours on Monday and Tuesday so you can drop in and purchase books for your children.
Parent-Teacher conferences are just around the corner. Please sign up for a time with your child's teacher as soon as possible. Our students are taking many great steps toward improving their skills and this is a perfect opportunity to share in that success and next steps.
Lastly, unless indicated, your child brought home a device and charger to use at home in the event of a school closure due to weather conditions. We know in Oregon that the weather can be unpredictable, so we want to be prepared and ensure your child has what they need. These devices should be brought back to school each day since the devices are used regularly in the classroom. Some teachers may have communicated a desire to have the devices charged at home in the evening. If you are able to support that, it would be helpful.
Thank You and have a great week,
Principal, River Mill Elementary
The Book Fair is Here!
