A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents,

November already! Where does the time go? Thank you to parents for attending parent-teacher conferences for the 1st trimester! Communication between home and school is so important for your children.  

Here are some ways to help 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. You must dress students appropriately for the weather. They will go 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.  

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, since they are the cornerstone of a good math foundation. Grades 2, 3, and 4 should master addition and subtraction, and grades 3, 4, and 5 should master subtraction, multiplication, and division.
