80TH DAY OF SCHOOL

A NOTE FROM MRS. COFFMAN

Can you believe it? We just celebrated our 80th day of school in style! We had some wonderful 80's outfits and loads of spirit!


I have a few friendly reminders for you. It is imperative your students are in class by 7:45 am. If your child does not enter the building by 7:45, you must come inside to the elementary office and sign them in. We use all instructional minutes and class work begins at 7:45. If you child enters late, they are missing instruction. Five or more tardies results in Monday Makeup School. Also, please be sure your child is bringing a water bottle and mask to school everyday.


Everyone has been working so hard! Please praise and encourage the teachers! They deserve so much with their ability to maintain flexibility and student success throughout all the changes. We are blessed to attend school in such a positive and learner-centered place! (They love gift cards, treats, and Dr. Pepper!)


¿Puedes creerlo? ¡Acabamos de celebrar nuestro 80º día de clases con estilo! ¡Tuvimos algunos atuendos maravillosos de los 80 y mucho espíritu!


Tengo algunos recordatorios amistosos para ti. Es imperativo que sus estudiantes estén en clase a las 7:45 am. Si su hijo no entra al edificio antes de las 7:45, debe entrar a la oficina de la escuela primaria y registrar su entrada. Usamos todos los minutos de instrucción y el trabajo de clase comienza a las 7:45. Si su hijo llega tarde, le faltan instrucciones. Cinco o más tardanzas resultan en la escuela de recuperación de lunes. Además, asegúrese de que su hijo traiga una botella de agua y una máscara a la escuela todos los días.


¡Todos han estado trabajando tan duro! ¡Alabe y anime a los maestros! Se merecen mucho por su capacidad para mantener la flexibilidad y el éxito de los estudiantes durante todos los cambios. ¡Tenemos la suerte de asistir a la escuela en un lugar tan positivo y centrado en el alumno! (¡Les encantan las tarjetas de regalo, las golosinas y Dr. Pepper!)
