Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we move towards the end of the first quarter of the school year, I would like to thank the PTSA, and the many other volunteers who give so much to support our children and school staff. Thank you again for all you do.
A couple housekeeping issues, please remember that we have our fall break October 9-13, with school resuming on October 16, and our parent/teacher conferences from October 30-November 3. School will be dismissed at 12:45 P.M. on those days. Please make it a point to meet with your child’s teacher when scheduled to do so.
On an unrelated issue, I wish to thank the ninety-eight percent of parents who ensure their child is at school on time in the morning, whether it is getting the bus on time, or dropping them off here at school. To the other two percent, having your child arrive late to school, especially if it is habitual, sets an extremely negative precedent for them. It may affect their ability to get, and keep a job later in life, and it may also tell them that education is not that important. And if you put yourself in the place of your child, how would you feel walking into a classroom late, with all eyes staring at you. Especially, the stern look of the teacher, letting you know how much they dislike you coming in late, and that they now have to repeat everything they just covered for the class. Please do your child a favor, and have them arrive on time.
If you wish to discuss this, or any other issue that might be affecting your child’s education, remember my door is always open.
