A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

November already! Where does the time go?

Parent-teacher conferences are coming on November 10 and 11. This is one of the most important things you can do for your child’s school year. Attend conferences! 

Ways to help your child with reading:

  1. Let your child see you read: books, magazines, newspapers, devices, etc.
  2. Set aside at least 10 to 15 minutes for reading.
  3. Set up a comfortable place to read.
  4. Go to the public library often.
  5. 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; they will go outside. When the snow arrives, (yikes) students must have snow pants and snow boots to play in the snow. Students cannot choose to stay inside for recess; students will go outside if the temperature permits.

      Math Facts, Math Facts, Math Facts: Please practice basic math facts with your student(s) daily (at least 15 minutes a day). Students should memorize basic math facts, the cornerstone of a good math foundation. Students in grades 2, 3, and 4 should master addition and subtraction. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 should master subtraction, multiplication, and division.
