Principal's Message - Reminders for Our Upcoming Weeks

Dear Falcon Families,

I want to bring to your attention that our upcoming school week is a short one. On Wednesday, we will be having Picture Make-Up Day. More information about this is included in this newsletter. In observance of Veteran's Day, there will be no school on Thursday, November 11th for students and staff. In addition, on Friday November 12th, there will be no school for students as we will be holding a professional development day for our teachers.

It is also important to remember that the week of November 15th-19th will be early release days (dismissal at 1:00 pm every day) for both Pinewood and Sierra Ridge. During this week, our teachers are looking forward to meeting parents to share student growth and progress during this first trimester. This is when you will receive your child's report card. These conferences are also important so that we can work with parents and students to establish goals for the remainder of the school year. At this point, you should have a set conference time with your child's teacher. Please connect with them if you have not scheduled this conference. We greatly appreciate and value your attendance at this meeting.

It is hard to believe that after these upcoming two weeks we will wrap up the month of November with Thanksgiving Break! Please refer to the linked 2021-2022 Academic Calendar below for specifics on our approaching breaks.

Finally, don't forget to move your clocks back one hour this weekend and enjoy that one extra hour of sleep!
