A family Newsletter: Week of September 18th

What a fun week!!!

It's hard to believe that we just finished our 4th week of school! Time flies when you're having fun!! The collaboration and excitement for learning that is happening in our classrooms and in our hallways is contagious!! I love seeing the big grins and "ah-ha" moments happenings each and every day!!

A big thank you to everyone in the community who has shown support to the teachers and staff as the school year has gotten up and running! We have had breakfasts donated, school supplies, classroom furniture, teacher luncheons provided, student supplies and the list could go on and on! Our children's success is definitely a partnership with the parents and community and we could not do it without you!! THANK YOU!!!

Check out our 4th grade and kinder students collaborating!!

A Quick Note from Nurse Martin

Starting September 12 I will be doing hearing and vision screenings for PK, K, 1, 3, and 5th grades. If your child wears glasses, please be sure they are wearing them and bringing them to school, especially for screenings. If your child does not pass the initial screening they will be re-screened 2-3 weeks after their initial screening. You will only be contacted if your child does not pass the re-screen and needs a physician referral this will be around mid-late October.
