Enrichment Programs

TUTORING AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

Dear Parents,


Tutoring and enrichment will look different this second semester by focusing on an intervention time for all of our students during the day. We have moved some curriculum time during the school day to allow 30-45 minutes of intervention time to serve more students. In order to make sure that we, as educators, have the best plan in place for this intervention time, the teachers will be conducting extended planning sessions on Wednesday afternoons. Rasor will no longer be offering Enrichment groups to the community; instead, enrichment will be provided by outside agencies at Rasor Elementary.


Below is information about the programs being provided on different afternoons of the week; however, know that transportation will NOT be offered. If you would like to sign up your child for a program, please follow the directions for that particular program. We look forward to continuing to serve your students in even more effective techniques by altering our Wednesday afternoons and still offering some type of enrichment programs.

Sincerely,


Zack Pruett, Principal

Valentine Frienship Party

Students will need to purchase valentine cards for their classroom. We do not put names on the valentine cards. This makes it easier for them to give the cards to classmates.


We will be making valentine bags at school.

The party is February 13th form 12-1 pm. Please sign up to bring an item through Google Document. If you have any questions, please contact Allison Pritz at allisonpritz@ymail.com

Reminder

***Students need to have tennis shoes for PE. If your child wears boots, sandals, etc., please pack tennis shoes in their backpack.

***Please remember that you can only take pictures of your child, due to parental consents. Make sure there are no children in the background of your pictures.

*** If you have not already signed up for Rasor eNews, Facebook, or Twitter please do so. This is one of the quickest way to get upcoming news that will be happening in school.. ***Please do not reply to the newsletter email. Please contact your childs teacher directly.
