Dear Families,

We are now well into the school year and we are so proud of how quickly our students have settled into their routines. We have been working hard with your children for the past two months and are encouraged by their growth. If you have any concerns or suggestions about your child’s education, the first person to talk to is your child’s teacher. If possible, arrange a time to discuss your concerns with the teacher, and attempt to resolve the matter. Your child’s teacher can give you more information about specific strategies being used to monitor their progress. We appreciate the privilege of working with you to help your children to develop into responsible, independent thinkers.

 Our parent teacher conferences are scheduled for December 6th, 7th, and 8th.   On all three days students will have a half day of school with dismissal at 10:45, we will have afternoon conferences on all three days with evening conferences being held on Thursday, December 7th. Conference information will be sent home to schedule your appointment with your teacher. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet and learn about your child’s progress and address any questions you may have.

We are looking forward to our celebration of Veteran’s Day with the fifth grade students and our veteran guests on November 9th. We will also have our District Emergency Drill on November 21st, when we will dismiss fifteen minutes earlier than usual.

The cooler weather is just beginning and it is important that your child is dressed appropriately for the cooler temperatures. If weather permits we will go outside for recess. Parent drop off in the morning is at 8:40. If you arrive early please stay with your child until there is supervision. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Enjoy the last of the warm weather, and we wish you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday. We are looking forward to a successful, productive school year for our students, staff and parent community!

Respectfully,
Linda Murphy
