Eagle News

SME newsletter for families and the community

Dear Parents,

Welcome back! Happy New Year!

We are excited about this new year and about the great things going on at Six Mile Elementary.

Due to growth in our student population, we have added two new classes this year since school began. We welcome Ms. Spears and Ms. Kay to Six Mile Elementary!

The PLA room was recently remodeled to make it more accessible for students. We will be using it as a STEM lab and multi-purpose room. We are excited about the possibilities for this area.

Teachers in all grade levels will be meeting this month to look at assessment data and plan for instruction for second semester. I appreciate the dedication of our staff to meeting the needs of each and every student. We are also blessed to have three interventionists working with students who are behind in the classroom. Funds from the Academic Recovery Plan are providing these teachers and extra resources to support our students.

We are also very thankful for our community partnerships with local churches, the Cliffs, our PTO, and community businesses who support our school and provide the funding for things we need. Whether it is breakfast, musical instruments, personal thank you notes, library books, playground equipment- our community partners always step up and support us. For this, we are truly thankful!

No School on January 17! Happy MLK Day!

January is School Board Appreciation Month!

Arrival Reminders

Here are just a few reminders for our car riders in the morning:

1. Please remember to arrive between 7:30 and 8:00. After 8:00, students are tardy and parents will need to sign them in through the front office. Teachers begin the school day at 7:35, so you are encouraged to get your student here between 7:30 and 7:45 if possible.

2. Please stay in your car when unloading. The adults who help with carline will be glad to undo seat belts, car seats, help with backpacks, etc.

3. Please remember that the car line is a No Phone Zone. Please try to hold phone calls until you are finished dropping off students.

4. Please have students exit the car on the curbside to avoid all traffic.

Thank you for your help!

Afternoon Car LIne

Please remember that even though the car line starts as two lanes, after the curve, it turns into three lanes. Please do not block cars from creating three lanes after the curve.

Core Essentials

Our character trait for the month of January is Self-Control. Self-control is choosing what you should do even when you don't want to. We will talk about this on the school news this month and Mrs. Orr will teach lessons in the classroom. We will have Best of the Nest to recognize those that exhibit this character trait at the end of the month.
