STUDENT ENGAGEMENT SURVEY

During the week of March 7th, your student will be participating in a Student Engagement Survey. This survey was written by the district and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It asks students to respond to questions in areas related to environment, learning, and relationships. Information from this survey is used by teachers and administrators to identify areas of improvement related to the student experience. If you have questions about the survey, please contact Mrs. LaPlant.

BRING YOUR COINS! STU CRU IS HOSTING A PENNY DRIVE FUNDRAISER

After our extra short week last week, the Penny Drive is now going to run this week Monday through Friday, February 28th through March 4th. This is a fundraiser for a non-profit organization called The Right Relief which is run by a former Country Dale teacher, Mrs. Mealy. Her organization provides meals to caregivers in need in our communities.


Bring in pennies and any dollar amounts to donate for your grade level. You can also bring in any silver coins to add to another grade level’s bucket which will count against that grade level. This is a competition! The grade level that raises the most will win a prize!

MARCH IS MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOL'S MONTH

March is recognized as Music in Our School’s Month. Throughout March, music educators and music students around the country will be celebrating music education in their classes and discussing how this year’s theme, “Music - The Sound of My Heart” resonates with them. The impact of music education on the lives of students during this school year is evident in how the social-emotional benefits have carried our students through the pandemic and brought joy to their lives. We encourage families to have discussions about how music is celebrated in your family and how it has been a part of your family’s history and traditions. Thank you for supporting music and making music an important part of our children’s education.
