Starr Family News

November 2022


Families and Students,

As we enter November, I am thinking about how very thankful I am for the students, families, and staff at Starr Elementary. Every day, I get to see teachers create learning experiences that make difficult concepts make sense to little minds, celebrate students who are so proud of their learning or behavior, and share moments of success with our families. Thank you to all of you for the special role that you play. We truly have such a very special little family here, and we are all blessed every day to be a part of it.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I am so proud to serve our students and families.

Bus Safety

The safety of our students is of upmost importance including while riding the bus to and from school and during field trips. We will be addressing bus safety and bus expectations with all students and work with bus drivers and bus aids to ensure expectations are being met. We also encourage families to talk with your child about the importance of staying seated while riding the bus, following adult instructions, keeping hands to ourselves, and using kind words. We want to encourage a safe and positive start and end of the day for all students and appreciate your support in our efforts.
