From the Desk of the Principal
It is hard to believe we are already entering the month of March. The weather will continue to be unpredictable but hopefully warmer weather is on the way. With the arrival of spring, we will have more hours of sunshine and temperatures on the rise which will provide our students the opportunity to spend more time outside and burn off that pent up winter energy. It gives them a renewed spirit and opportunity to become more focused.
March will be another busy month at school. We are going to March into National Literacy Month! Literacy goes beyond a general understanding of reading and writing. To continue to grow as people and a society, it is important to nurture these skills before reading begins and long after the learning process is done. Young children can have improved literacy by being read to before they are readers, reading with you as emerging readers, reading together as fluent readers, and by watching parents and teachers being active readers both at home and school. Our celebration of literacy will include reading challenges for our Elementary readers, pajama and pillow day to provide a cozy morning of uninterrupted reading, and other literacy-based fun. All students will have the opportunity to earn a book! Flier on how to earn a book will go home on Monday March 1, 2021!
As we wind down our school year, it is imperative that our students are here every day to ensure they are getting the best education possible. While we understand life happens, please understand that even a few minutes late can have a huge impact on how a student’s day begins. They walk into the building behind other students when classroom meetings have already started, or transitions have already happened. We have an amazing staff that are all dedicated to supporting your students to succeed. Please allow them the opportunity to provide them the best possible by having them at school ready to learn.
Thank you everyone for completing our annual re-enrollment process! We hope that this year was much simpler than in past years. We will hope to move it online for the 2022-2023 school year.
We are in the process of designing our summer camp program. Families that checked the enrollment box for interest in our program, we will be sending out details by the end of March. Registration dates are forthcoming.
