A Note from Mr. Watters

An important reminder that yesterday, Wednesday the 18th, the Parent Portal opened so that you can view your child's progress document online. Thank you for reviewing this important feedback with your child and preparing them for the upcoming conferences. If you need any help accessing your child's report please contact Mrs. Taggart at 267-893-4050. She would be more than happy to help walk you through the steps to access the progress report.

My story: After finishing up dinner last night (eggs and bacon and green beans), doing the dishes, finishing up homework, signing the Wednesday folder contents, and Emma (one of my younger twins) and my wife had left for Brownies, I got the other three showered, picked out school outfits, prepped for lunch (for today) and threw in some hugs and laughs (and of course broke up a few fights along the way - don't want you to think it's all rainbows in the Watters house - my kids are kids just like yours are!). Then, just before heading up to read before bed, I sat on the couch with my older two (4th graders) and reviewed each part of the progress report noting the strengths and goals.

I asked them, "What do you think about the strengths and goals your teacher set on your progress report?" In some cases, they agreed. In others, they didn't understand. "That's why the conference time is so important," I told them. Having your child attend and participate in the conference is critically important. This is their learning journey and they need to be an active participant.

Tonight, I'll do the same thing with my younger two. I know evenings are challenging, and I thank you for making it a point to review the progress report information with your child, talk with them, and most importantly, listen to them. It is all so important to the learning process.

We look forward to meeting with you and your children, to review their progress, celebrate their accomplishments, and set new learning goals together. It's an invaluable process, and the time spent together as a team is a great "model" for collaboration and a mutual vision.

Remember that on Monday the 23rd and Tuesday the 24th, when conferences are held in the afternoon and evening, that your children are dismissed as early dismissal days. We will dismiss at approximately 12:25 both days. Also, a reminder that Wednesday the 25th there is no school for students.

In most cases, you will need to enter through the front doors to gain entrance to the building for your conferences. If alternate arrangements need to occur your child's teacher will have contacted you with directions.

I am wishing you all a very blessed Thanksgiving break filled with love and appreciation for so much... happy travels!

Annual Giving Project!

Look for information from your child's teacher regarding our Holiday Basket Giving Drive. Each homeroom class will be given a food item to donate. Our school community has provided some pretty amazing holiday memories and celebrations over the years. Thank you for your continued support of this community support effort.

Thank you Operation Shoebox Volunteers!!

Thank you for all of your support with Operation Shoebox! Our school filled 25 boxes with small gifts for needy children in third world countries. Students in the primary grades helped to decorate the boxes during recess and the 6th grade volunteers (pictured) filled the boxes with the treats.

Update on our Candy Donations

Due to overwhelming donation response, we were able to provide 15 boxes to Operation Gratitude (troops), 5 large boxes to Christ Home for Children and two large bags to CHOP via a teacher. That's A LOT of candy we donated! Thank you Warwick School Community, and thank you to Mia, Aidan, Robert, and Angelina for giving up their time on the weekend to sort, box, and deliver our school community donations!
