Mr. Posick's Friday email

Reading time

The past couple of weeks I've had the opportunity to be in many classrooms of all types, but I've had the most fun meeting with students to confer about the books they're reading and the papers they're writing. Wednesday was World Read Aloud Day and with it came some fun. I challenged students and staff to dress like they're favorite character from a book and they did an awesome job. As you look below, you can see me (Bond. James Bond) as well as students and Miss Francouer and Mr. Fleischman. We're just finding ways to make reading exciting. Why don't you sit down with your child this weekend and listen to them read or read along side of them? It will be time well spent.

Trivia Night is next Friday, March 4th

Our annual Trivia Night is set for Friday, March 4th as Ironwood Golf Course. All funds raised are going toward the purchase of new playground equipment for the Intermediate School. Here is a link to sign up to attend. We hope that you can attend and appreciate your continued support of Merton Schools!

How can I find out what's going on in the Intermediate School?

I often get asked this question, and I'd tell you that there is one really good place to get almost everything you need, my webpage. You can find it here. It has our daily announcements, Twitter and Facebook links, every Smore so far this year, and many other items of interest. And if you can't find something there, don't hesitate to email me for anything you might need.

7th and 8th grade conferences

Next week Thursday, March 3rd we will be having arena style conferences in the gym from 4:30-8:00 This is a time to come in to meet with your child's teachers to discuss academic and behavioral goals for the remainder of the school year. The following week, on Thursday, March 10th, the 7th and 8th grade teachers will be having "invitation only" conferences. A letter was sent home to families if the teachers requested a conference for your child.
