Good Afternoon Families,
Wow…we are almost halfway through January already. I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and happy. If you are anything like myself, we are all in the middle of a few new year's resolutions, LOL!!! Only time will tell how that works out for us. Most of all for me is that it is great to be back with the kids. They energize me and keep me young. Thank you all for having such great young people.
As the new year begins and we are approaching the end of the first semester of school, we always like to refresh our students with our expectations around a couple key areas that keep all of us safe and healthy. I will keep it short, but please know that your students' safety and staff safety are crucial to maintaining a great place for your students to learn.
I absolutely love working with middle school age students. When you add in our fourth and fifth graders to the equation, I am energized every day. In order for students to be successful and stay energized, they have to have fuel. We feed them breakfast and lunch every day for free. Encourage your students to eat. However, I know that students get hungry before and after lunch. If your student needs snacks, please send those with your students. As long as they are in a sealed package or container, students can keep those in their lockers. As a school leader, I can’t expect my staff to provide snacks every day for our students. I am working with the district food service administrator to determine how we can provide snacks to our students.
As always, if you have any questions contact the school. We are all here to serve our students and our community. Have a safe and wonderful weekend. I look forward to continuing our partnership with you and for your students.
