We work hard to provide opportunities
at school. During the month of
February, we celebrated our annual
“Fitness February” which provided
daily fitness challenges to our
students. Families were also
encouraged to participate. We
appreciate all of the positive feedback
we received about this program.
Throughout March, which is “Music in
our Schools Month,” students are
being exposed to different genres of
music through “Name that Tune”
challenges. We hope that all students
will appreciate the need for music in
their lives. Students and families will
also be participating in our Parents as
Reading Partners (PARP) activities
throughout March. Students will be
rewarded with an interactive PARP
rally at the end of the month. The
theme this year is “Rock ‘N Read!” -
we hope students enjoy the fun! We
are very excited that our PARP theme
this year partners nicely with Music in
Our Schools Month. We have once
again partnered with Water Safari to
offer students a free park pass if they
meet the challenge. Throughout
April, we will celebrate the visual arts
in the elementary school. Students
will be busy completing projects for
the art show in April.
We appreciate the support from home
we receive for our academic program.
It is great so many families have
participated in the programs and
functions sponsored by our school.
We hope the additional opportunities
we are providing will give all students
a chance to excel and connect to
We are happy to offer these
opportunities to our students both in
and outside of the classroom.
Elementary teachers keep a careful
eye on our students and help them
connect to school. We count on
parents to be our partners; here are
some things parents can do to help:
Ask your child’s teachers how
you can help your child at home.
Spend a few minutes every
evening looking over handouts
your youngster brings home.
Contact your child’s teacher
immediately if you see a
problem. Working together will
help your child succeed.
Attend conferences, parent
meetings, and school events
Be sure teachers know you
appreciate their efforts.
