Millstone Primary School - November 2023
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
Hello Millstone Primary families and friends,
November is here, and it brings with it a sense of change and growth at Millstone Primary School. As we move deeper into the academic year, I want to take a moment to reflect on our achievements and look ahead to the exciting opportunities that this month and the coming weeks will bring.
Academic Success: I am pleased to report that our students have made significant progress academically. Teachers and staff have been working diligently to provide a supportive and enriching learning environment, and our students have responded with enthusiasm and determination. It's important to continue to encourage and support their efforts at home, as your involvement is instrumental in their academic success.
Parent-Teacher Conferences: Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for November 7, and November 21-22. This is a valuable opportunity to discuss your child's progress and receive insights on their strengths and areas where they may need additional support. We look forward to engaging in meaningful conversations with each of you. Please sign up for a conference time through our online scheduling system on Genesis, which can be accessed on our school website.
Community Engagement: Our school community thrives when parents, students, and staff come together to support our shared goals. On Monday, November 6th from 6-7pm, we will host an Innovamat Parent Information Night for our Primary School families. Join us to learn more about the math program that has become a highlight of the students' day!
Thanksgiving Break: In observance of Thanksgiving, Millstone Primary School will be closed from November 23 to November 26. We hope this break allows families to come together, enjoy each other's company, and give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. Please note that school will be on a shortened day schedule on Wednesday, November 22.
I hope everyone enjoys this wonderful time of the year!
Dr. Paul Baker, Principal
