I hope everyone is enjoying the early spring weather prior to a potential snowfall tonight. As a reminder, if there is ever a two-hour delay, the building will open at 10:15 a.m. for students, with instruction beginning at 10:45 a.m. (essentially, everything is pushed back two hours). Please see the announcements below:
Pancakes and Literacy: Thursday, February 23rd from 6pm-8pm
Mark your calendars… Pancakes and Literacy is BACK! Come out and support Literacy Awareness month with a night filled with Pancakes and Literacy FUN. This year, there will be PANCAKES, PANCAKES, and more PANCAKES, activities for younger and older readers, and some informative workshops for parents interested in learning how to support their young readers. More information coming soon in backpacks, on the LTES listserv and the LTES website. Tickets are $5 for families (up to 3 kids) and will go on sell Thursday, February 9th. If you would like to volunteer please email Melanie Moore (Teagen Chacon’s mom) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Open Books Family Literacy Workshops:
Open Books Family Literacy Workshops are for families of students in grades K-3. While the workshops are open to all K-3 students, they are highly recommended for families who feel that their child has difficulty reading or for students who were recommended by their classroom teacher. If you would like to participate in upcoming workshops, please RSVP to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our final workshops will take place on Thursday, February 9th and Thursday, March 2nd from 5:30-6:30 in room 217.
Our playground equipment was officially ordered! Construction should begin in the next few weeks, but we are still waiting on a start date.
Parent Teacher Conferences:
The next Parent-Teacher Conference Day will occur Friday, March 3rd. Similar to the last round, in hopes of making these conferences more practical and productive, most teachers are beginning to schedule them as soon as next week. Last round, we had about 95% of families attend, and we hope to keep that up for this round. While times still can be made available on the 3rd, our hope is that by creating a larger window, families can schedule a more convenient and useful time with teachers. Please look for further scheduling information from your homeroom teacher.
Please reach out with any feedback.
