Boone School Family Newsletter
March 2016 Online Edition
Dear Families and Friends of Boone School,
Spring is on its way! March also brings us to our Boone Literacy Week, and we look forward to all sorts of fun-filled events next week to celebrate the love of reading. Please be sure to check out the agenda below and get your read on!
We are also in the process of creating our new school improvement plan for the 2016-2018 school years. The improvement plan is called the CIWP (Continuous Improvement Work Plan), and all CPS schools are currently drafting new plans. Parents, students, and community members are all invited to take a survey to provide input as to how we can make Boone even better. You can take the electronic survey at this link: CIWP Survey. Or, a paper copy will also be sent home with students. Thank you in advance for your feedback!
Jackie Delaney, Principal
