Parent University: New Progress Reports
The progress reports used in Neshaminy elementary schools are changing for the 2017-2018 school year. The district will be offering four informational sessions to allow parents and guardians the opportunity to learn about these changes in person and have their questions answered. In addition, a video of this presentation will be recorded and shared with our elementary school families for those that cannot attend. The remaining dates are:
- Tuesday September 19, 2:30 pm, Maple Point Middle School District Board Room
- Tuesday September 19, 6 pm, Maple Point Middle School Auditorium
Presenters: Peg Monahan, Supervisor of STEM K-12 and Bob Boffa, Supervisor of English Language Arts & Literacy K-12
Be Allergy Aware!
Due to varied allergy and dietary needs, please contact your child's teacher before sending in food or other items intended to be distributed to students in a classroom (e.g. birthday celebrations, class parties). Students should not share food at any time during school - even with a close friend. A seemingly harmless food item may unexpectedly contain allergens, or interact with other medical conditions. Depending on the health needs within a classroom, teachers may choose to avoid food-oriented experiences altogether. Please consider non-food treats as an alternative. Please speak directly with your child's teacher. Do not send in any items until the teacher has responded and confirmed the appropriateness of your request. Thanks!
