APRIL is our Movie Under the Stars, bring your blanket and snacks. PTO will be providing our big screen and projector. The movie will be held in our green area. We are still looking for volunteers. Also, don't forget to send in your votes for the feature movie.
May is Mother's day month/celebration. Get in contact with classroom teachers to provide ideas for this celebration, be an active parent. Diaz-Rico (2000) argues that students who feel proud of their cultures when learning a second language, tend to have a higher rate of acquisition (as cited in Sousa, 2011). Also, when parents participate as role models, children are more likely to follow their steps. Being an active parent only adds to positive outcomes for their children.
Remember volunteer, volunteer, volunteer, and be a part of your children's learning.
You are always welcome at our community school!
