Welcome to Week 5!
It is officially October, one of my favorite months of the year! I love fall and Halloween, and everything about the weather we just had this weekend...humidity FREE!
It has been a whirlwind of a month for me, and I am just beginning to breathe again. I am not sure if you know this or not, but I was hired only a few short days before school started, and it has been a crazy, yet AMAZING first month. Your children are wonderful and the staff is extremely talented.
My goal this year is to partner with you at home to ensure that you feel welcome and informed. My main method of communicating important information will be through this Smore newsletter. I finally received my own account, so the messaging will hopefully be clearer, going forward.
There is so much going on this next month and many fun events to look forward to, including Cardinal Crawl, Boo Bash, Count Day and Parent-Teacher Conferences. I look forward to getting to know you at these events!
Have a wonderful week!
We do have specific procedures that we are still working on implementing. Students must stay in their seats at all times and be at a voice level 2 or lower. This means that any form of yelling or screaming is not permitted. It can get very loud in the cafeteria, so we will continue to remind them to keep the noise levels down. There have been instances where we had to implement a level 0 (no talking) and a level 1(whispering) so that they understand the difference.
Additionally, we are working on making sure that those who go through the lunch line, get everything that they need in order to avoid going back. For safety purposes, we do not want them traveling back and forth from their seats. Therefore, soon, we will not permit it. Instead, we will have a traveling basket for those who need additional items. We have been working on this for an entire month. We also understand that the littler ones may need more practice with this, but ultimately, we would like everyone to stay seated for the entire 30 minutes.
Fall Parent/Teacher Conferences
Boo Bash October 6th!
There will be food, games, and a movie screen. Don't miss out! Below is the flyer with the QR code in case you would like to volunteer!
Thank you to the PTO and to all of you who are part of this event! The kids are going to LOVE it!
I will send out a schedule for the Crawl so that you know when each grade level will be out on the track! This will come to you this week. We hope you will join us on the day of the event. Remember, to participate, your child only needs to raise $10.
