I hope that everyone is continuing to have a great school year. We have been busy the last few weeks with trips to the Kennedy Center, National Museum of African-American History, Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, ECE visit to Cox Farms, K visit to Stribling Orchard and more. I am personally excited about the breadth of experiences we are bringing to our students and the high levels of student-centered instruction in the classrooms. You continued support is appreciated - please the updates below:
As of today, the hope is that the playground construction will begin over the next few weeks and be completed prior to January 2017. This Thursday, we have a meeting with the playground contractors and DGS to begin reviewing equipment options for our new playground. Please keep an eye out for the plans in the parent center so that we can receive more community input.
Parent Teacher Conferences:
The first Parent-Teacher Conference Day will occur Friday, November 4th. In hopes of making these conferences more practical and productive, some teachers are beginning to schedule them as soon as this week. While times still can be made available on the 4th, our hope is that by creating a larger window, with more time slots spread out, we can see more families in a more efficient setting. This will be a teacher-by-teacher choice, so please look for further scheduling information from your homeroom teacher.
Impact Aide Forms:
Your child will be sent home with an impact aide form this week. These forms finalize enrollment numbers for us and determine funding for the rest of the school year. It is critical that all families complete the forms and get them back to us as soon as possible. Thank you for your support with this.
