Caldwell Update

October 2021

A Message from Ms. Massey

Hello Caldwell Families!


October is here and with it comes cooler temperatures, fall-like colors, beautiful leaves, smell of pumpkins, apples and cinnamon. This past month, our teachers and staff have spent time reconnecting with our students, families, and community. Everyone is now settled into classroom routines and procedures. This time of the year, we have made progress, but it is time to transition to the next level to accomplish our campus goals. Our teachers and students have set academic goals and together we will measure student progress during the school year. We will need your support!


This month is when we have parents and teacher conferences. The designated date is the morning of October 25th but teachers may schedule conferences throughout that week to discuss your students’ academic progress and areas of growth. Please reach out to your child’s teacher should you wish to schedule a conference. Report cards will be available for parents in HAC on October 29.


Thank you in advance for your continued support to our students at Caldwell. Go Cats!

Counselor's Corner

Important Dates:


Red Ribbon Week October 26-29


This month we are talking about the character trait of respect, which is seeing the good in people, being courteous to one another, resolving conflicts peacefully and treating one another as we would want to be treated.


Here are some conversation starters you can have with your child at home:

  • Talk with your child about what it means to be respectful, to be courteous and to use their manners, to solve conflicts peacefully, and what it means to treat others the way they want to be treated.

  • Talk about a time you felt disrespected and what you did about it in a way that demonstrated Respect.

  • Share about a time when you felt that someone was being disrespectful to you. Talk about how you wish the other person would have shown Respect to you. Can you think of a time in which YOU were disrespectful to someone? What do YOU wish you would have done differently?

Nurse News

Staying hydrated helps kids stay alert and focused, can keep their bodies at a safe and healthy temperature, and may improve cognitive functioning. School-aged kids should be drinking at least six to eight glasses of water each day.

Please send a water bottle to school with your child to refill through the day.

Library Lowdown

This month, our digital citizen lessons will be over protecting our personal information. Talk to your student about his/her personal information (name, address, phone number, etc.) and with whom they should/should not share it.
