Rocket Wrap Up
What a welcome September was in our building! With the change of months, we've had a cooling down of weather and a more settled feel inside the building.
Students and staff are establishing routines and beginning to make their goals for the year ahead. Our students in grades 1 - 5 have started on their iReady diagnostic for the fall to help provide important information about the needs of each child. Students in K - 3 are working on a variety of literacy assessments to help create a more complete picture of each student as a reader.
As we continue to live, teach, and learn in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, please continue to monitor your child/ren at home for symptoms. If they are not feeling well, please call the office and send a note when they return. If your student has been in direct contact with someone outside of school that has tested positive, please notify the school and begin your self-quarantining procedures. We want to do everything we can to perserve full, 5 day a week learning for all of our students. We appreciate your help in making that happen!
Please feel free to reach out to me or your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns!
Yours in Education,
Jess Parthemore, Ed.S.
Picture Day is Coming
We will do whole class photos and picture retakes on September 29th.
If you would like to place your order for pictures online, please visit the link here. The password is "PrePay."
Please see Ms. Parthemore if you have any questions.
Chromebooks and Cases
Please help reinforce this with your child--no other objects (pencils, headphones, earbuds, etc.) can go in the case. These can move around and get between the screen and the keyboard and cause the chromebook screen to break.
