Conway Elementary School - December 5, 2022

Hello Cougar Families!

I hope you all had a relaxing Thanksgiving holiday. We have had a great week back and can't believe that it is a short 3 weeks until our Christmas break! We have a lot of fun activities planned for the next few weeks. The grades 4-6 band and chorus concert is coming up this week, and they will play for the school during the day as a dress rehearsal. We are excited to bring back our annual Christmas store, where students can choose items to give as gifts to their families. Also, we will be having a spirit week, with dress up days, in the week leading up to the break. See below for the schedule of days! Please keep your eye out for your child's report card coming home in the mail early next week!

Every School Day Counts

Remember Cougar Families - every school day counts. Students are much more successful academically when they are in school on a consistent basis, but they are also more successful socially as it takes time to build strong relationships with their teacher and peers. If your child is going to be absent, please be sure to call us at 603-447-3369 first thing in the morning.

As we return from the Thanksgiving break, we are grateful for everyone who has helped to restore a routine for showing up to school.

Daily routines are essential for reducing stress and creating a sense of security, especially after the chaotic transitions experienced over the last few years.

As long as your child is healthy, please encourage showing up to class when school is in session. Every day of school is an important opportunity for students to learn as well as connect to peers and their teachers.

We thank:

  • Our students and their families who do their best to show up to class every day even when it isn’t easy.
  • Our teachers who have gone above and beyond to help make school a welcoming learning environment where students can thrive.
  • Our many, many healers and helpers - the support staff and community volunteers who provide the extra hands and attention our children need.
