NEU Highgrove Newsletter October
Another Great Month at NEU Highgrove
The month of October is upon us and our students continue to engage in learning. During the month of September, several of our students had challenges related to attendance, but they are back and thriving.
During the month of September, we also launched Hispanic Heritage Month and everyday since September 15, our students have received a message about how Hispanic Americans have contributed to the development of our country. Please take a few minutes of each day to ask your child about what Hispanic Americans they have learned about.
Our 4th - 6th grade students also began weekly music classes and they are enjoying them a great deal. If your 5th or 6th grade student is interested in joining band this year, please reach out to our band teacher, Mr. Andrew Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dreambox, our district adopted supplemental math tool, is a huge success at Highgrove. On average our 700+ students are logging in every day and completing more than 5 lessons a week. Our NEU HERO HUSKIES are meeting our expectations for completing 5 lessons a week. Highgrove was recently recognized as one of the top elementary schools in our district for usage for September; thank you parents for this great support
Please review the Attendance Matters information sheet linked above.
For the safety of all of our students and staff, please ensure your student s) is feeling well before coming to school and that he/she has a mask. A mask will be provided if your student(s) needs one.
