He will share information on how next year’s school budget was developed. Fast Facts about the 2016-2017 school budget are posted on our the district's website. May 17th is our Greenfield Elementary Annual Art Show. Come see our hallways! They will be full of the artistic creations of our students. Come in and walk the hallways, enjoy some musical interludes by our very own Orchestra/Band students and then don’t forget to vote for the school budget before you leave. You can find more information on the school budget in the District's Fast Facts.
Our May BEST assembly was on May 2nd at 9:30 AM. In May we will learn about community. At our BEST assembly we watched a video made by Mrs. Williams' 5th grade students. It showed us how friendships and how we treat our friends affect our classroom community. We also learned about other ways to help our community by taking care of our environment. The Parent Corner below has a great article about serving others and how it helps children build good character. Check it out!
With this in mind, the Shared Decision Making Team continues to work on school improvement goals and initiatives. This year we have worked on school safety and a summer reading initiative. Next year we are looking to investigate homework practices and a parent resource center. We are currently looking for parent representatives for next year. Please let the main office know if you are interested in applying for a position on this team. We meet seven times a year. We have been meeting at 8:30 in the morning but the time can be looked at by the team.
We have some important reminders and information for you on our website. Added this month is information from our attendance office and information about our Health and Wellness policy. Please remember that we do not celebrate birthdays with food. Check out our Health and Wellness brochure which explains that we make an effort to make sure your child feels special on their special day without utilizing food to celebrate.
