Message from the Principal
December is a very exciting month for some families, and stressful time for others. We want to make sure our students are focused on their education while in school by providing a culture of care and support for all. Please do not hesitate to contact our family outreach, Mery Rosario, if you need assistance with clothing, food, housing, or any community services.
We also want to invite all of our families to a District’s Open House to preview materials from our K-6 Language Arts adoption. This will be an opportunity to look at bilingual materials from two major publishers as well as the technology and special education supports they provide in the classroom.
The open house will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 16, in the Event Room at the Brookwood Public Library, 2850 NE Brookwood Pkwy. Please take advantage of the open house and provide input on how to best serve and support our students in literacy.
We also want to share a few reminders for this winter season:
Be sure your student comes to school with warm clothes and a warm jacket every day. We want them to enjoy recess outside, and to make sure they are warm and comfortable
Please write your student’s name inside the coat. We have many coats and jackets in our lost & found and want to make sure we return them to our students
Be sure to call the attendance line and report symptoms if your child is home sick.
Have a wonderful winter breaK!
~~~~~~~~See What's Happening in Our Classrooms~~~~~~~~
A lot has been happening in the K-1 classroom since the beginning of the school year. we constantly work on building and maintaining a strong community where everyone feels safe and able to learn. In math, we have learned a great deal about numbers, their value, order, and so much more. Language arts has meant a lot of reading and writing, students work in daily small reading groups geared to their learning needs and pace and are becoming readers. Our content time has consisted of learning about our five senses, we learned about what it means to be a scientist. We studied the sun. We have also learned a great deal about our brains and how we can learn through persevering, risk-taking, and making mistakes. Social-emotional learning has also allowed us to learn about our zones of regulation and how we can help ourselves and others to succeed in school and in life. It is an honor to work with these creative, eager, and resilient students. There is so much more to get to, we're excited to learn and grow together.
