Worthington Park Shark Sentinel
Friday, January 21st, 2022
Dear Worthington Park Families,
What a wonderful week here at Park. Even though our week was shortened due to Monday's celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, students were able to get so much accomplished. Our Sharks continued to work incredibly hard on their MAP assessments and on classroom lessons and activities. We look forward to another great week at Park starting on Monday!
Have a wonderful and safe weekend! Please take a few minutes to review the information below and GO SHARKS!
Unfortunately, the school will not have additional yearbooks to purchase in the spring, so get your orders in now!
Parent Teacher Conference
Your child's teacher will be reaching out next week with sign-up information for either in person or Zoom conference.
Winter Weather Reminder
Weather and health permitting, we expect all children to go outside for recess. In our schools, when the weather is dry/dry enough, and the temperature is 20 degrees or higher, real temperature, or wind-chill, we plan to take students outside for recess.
Thank you for helping keep our Sharks warm on the playground!
