February 2017

Reminder:  Valentine's Dance is tomorrow from 6-8.  We hope to see you there!!!!

Time is flying by as the halfway point of the year has passed.  We have completed DRAs (Developmental Reading Assessments).  At this point in the year, students should be reading on an instructional level of 34.  Please check your child’s Monday folder to find their current reading level. A key part in your child’s reading success, is to practice.  Students should be reading every night for at least 20 minutes!
We are beginning preparation for the Georgia Milestones by practicing test taking strategies. It is important for parents to support their child by encouraging them to do their best. We do not want to add any pressure to students about testing.  We simply want to encourage them to do their best.
We are proud of our students’ accomplishments so far this year!  Looking forward to see what the rest of year brings for our students!
 As always, please feel free to contact your child’s homeroom teacher with any questions or concerns.

Happy November!!!

As we have reached the end of the 1st nine weeks, we want to remind you how important regular attendance is to your child’s learning and progress.  It is easy for students to start falling behind if they are missing instructional time.  We also feel it is equally important for students to arrive by 7:15 to ensure they get their day started on time.  Please ensure your child has regular, on-time attendance.  We do understand sickness may arise, especially as we enter the Fall and Winter seasons.  If your child is sick, please contact Nurse Dawn Wale.  She can advise as to whether your child should be kept home.  Remember to send in an excuse for any absences.  It is important for students to remain at school for the entire day.  Please try to schedule any appointments after school hours.  We appreciate your consideration in helping your child have good school attendance.
