Dear Florence Families,
It was a very busy and exciting week at Florence Elementary!!! We began the week with our PTA Meeting and Art Night where the students enjoyed a variety of crafts with friends and family. On Tuesday night we oriented our WatchDog dads and got them all signed up to begin the important work of helping us here at Florence. We also recognized our new 2015-2016 Student Council Officers, Ambassadors, and Classroom Representatives. KISD School Board Vice President, Cindy Lotton, was in attendance to share thoughts on leadership and school engagement. On Thursday and Friday we celebrated Grandparents Day! The halls of Florence were buzzing with activity and happiness!!!
We were also blessed to have famous children's author Patricia Polacco here to present to the children. She shared stories of her childhood and how she comes up with ideas for writing and illustrating her books. Her message was of perseverance, appreciation, and acceptance. It was truly inspiring and we were honored to have her at Florence!!
Have a great weekend!!!
P.S. Keep in mind that we have our first early release for the school year next Friday, Oct. 2nd, at 12:00.
