Another Engaging Week

It was wonderful to meet many of you this week at Open House! There was such a positive energy at school that evening as children were excited to show off their new classroom communities with their families.


Throughout the year, I will be hosting Parent Information Nights (PINs) to discuss topics of interest to families. These events will begin in October with a Curriculum update at which we will discuss an overview of Writer's Workshop, Reader's Workshop, Go Math!, Fundations and MCAS. Are there other topics you would like me to focus on in future months? If so, click here to provide that feedback. Our first PIN will be on Thursday, October 16th from 7:00-8:00.


Thank you to those parents who worked through our pick-up procedure changes with us this week. I appreciate your patience as we worked to develop the safest and most efficient system for all of our students. Moving forward, beginning at 2:45, parents will come into the school to pick up and sign out their children. Students with last names that begin with A-I will be in the Cafeteria; J-Z will be in the gymnasium. Students are called down beginning at 2:47. These changes were made as staff on duty last year felt that being outside for pick-up was very chaotic. In addition, not everyone was checking out with school staff which is part of our protocol to make sure everyone leaves with a trusted adult. Thank you for working with us for the safety of the children.


I hope you and your family have a restful and rejuvenating weekend so the entire Ruggles Family is ready for our first five day week next week : )


Have a wonderful weekend,


Ms. V
