Big T Weekly

January 15, 2021

A Message from Mrs. Walgast

Dear Big T Families,

Well, we had another fabulous week of learning and growing at Big T! This week our students began mid-year iReady testing for math and literacy. These tests help us see the growth our students are making as well as the areas they may need support. During our upcoming parent/teacher conferences, teachers will discuss these results and the progress being made. Speaking of parent/teacher conferences, we will soon send out a sign up. Parent/teacher conferences will take place during the week of February 22nd.

As a reminder, when it snows, please be sure to send your child with boots, snow pants, a jacket, mittens/gloves and a hat. We go out everyday unless the “feels like” temperature is below 15 degrees.

And as always thank you for helping us keep us all safe and healthy by sending your child to school everyday with a mask and encouraging social distancing. We appreciate the partnership. We are in this together!

Thank you and have a terrific weekend! We will see you on Tuesday!

Stay safe and be well!

Most sincerely,

Sarah Walgast

Annual Student Registration

It is mandatory for the PRIMARY guardian to do the Annual Student Registration (formerly Annual Family Update) and update all information including emergency contacts, phone numbers AND district permissions for the upcoming school year. It takes 10 minutes to complete. Please do so today. I have attached instructions. Your application is not complete until you have hit the RED SUBMIT button AND CONFIRM button.

IF you have moved and need to update your address: During ASR, you MUST upload a copy of your utility bill or top page of your lease if you are changing schools (OR email it to your students current school today) to complete the address update.

I have also attached Parent Portal instructions if you need help accessing Portal. Please remember the ASR can ONLY be done by the primary guardian.

Note...upcoming 6th graders MUST have their Tdap booster. Please do this before August 1st, 2021. Once your student has received this booster, please send a copy of the updated immunizations to their 6th grade school.

Thank you for your immediate action!
