Parent Newsletter-February 3rd, 2023
Dear Worthington Park Families,
Happy Friday Sharks! What a wonderful, all be it chilly, week here at Worthington Park. Time is flying by and we are already in February. As the calendar changes, we look forward to more school based events and celebrations in the coming weeks, including Valentine's Day classroom celebrations on 2/10 & Parent Teacher Conference Week starting next week.
Our team looks forward to next week and welcoming our parents and guardians into the building for conferences! We are excited to collaborate with families and to share about the progress our amazing students have made thus far. If you have not signed up for a conference yet, there is still time! Please reach out to your child's teacher to see what days and times are available!
