Smith Family Newsletter
We believe in the power of school and family partnerships.
Message from Dr. Rivera
Speaking of goals, our attendance goal for this year is 95.5%. Pre-Covid, we always had close to 98% attendance, and we have not recovered for some reason. The SES Absence Tank in the picture shows how many absences we have left in order to reach our 95.5% goal, and it is updated monthly. As you can see, we are already over budget. We need your help in getting our kids to school and setting them up for success. Good attendance and work habits start now!
International Night is just around the corner. This is a time where we celebrate the diverse cultures from around the world. Visitors are encouraged to dress up in a cultural outfit as we take a trip around the globe. Raising Readers will also be happening in the library, and we will be serving tostadas for dinner. We are in need of the following:
- Performances from different cultures - dances, singing, etc.
- Food/snacks from different countries
- Volunteers to run stations with crafts and activities and to pass out food
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to get involved.
