A Message from Our Principal

Dear Students, Parents, and Families,

It’s November already! Where does the time go? Thank you for attending parent teacher conferences at the end of the first quarter! Communication between home and school is so important for your children.  

Tips for helping your child with reading:

  • Let your child see you read books, magazines, newspapers, devices, etc.
  • Set aside 10-15 minutes (at least) for reading.
  • Set a comfy place to read.
  • Go to the public library often.
  • Read to your child! No matter how old, children love to listen to stories.

Winter Clothing:
Students will go outside for recess unless the temperature is below 15 degrees Fahrenheit. Students must dress appropriately for the weather, as they will be going outside. When the snow arrives (Yikes!), students must have snow pants and snow boots.  Students cannot choose to stay inside for recess. Students will go outside if the temperature permits.
