Potter Elementary School
From the Desk of Ms. Waite
Happy Holiday Season! Thank you to all of the families who attended our "STEMs"- Giving event; we handed out over 400 dinners and had a lot of fun celebrating with our Potter Family. While this is an exciting time of year, please remember that we are still busy working hard and learning lots. It is very important that your child is in school every day and on time. If you need assistance with getting your child to school please reach out to our social worker Ms. Mejias or our parent liaison, Mrs. Knight-Brown.
The end of the second nine weeks is December 17h and it is quickly approaching please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's progress.
Please read below to see some important dates for things going on at Potter in the next couple of weeks.
As always if you need anything, please reach out.
