July 26, 2017Hello Everyone:I hope that you and your family are enjoying your summer and having fun! I know I am! I’ve had the opportunity to visit Kalahari, America’s largest indoor waterpark, and Niagara Falls. Back at school, we are getting ready for the 2017 – 2018 school year.
When our students return to school on Monday, August 28th, our teachers will be ready to greet them and provide new, exciting school experiences. As always, we look forward to getting to know each and every child, meeting their academic needs, and challenging them to be the best they can be.
We will continue to implement the School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) program that we started last school year. Students will learn how to be respectful, responsible, and kind in the classroom, hallway, bathroom, cafeteria, at recess, and on the bus. These expectations will be explicitly taught to students by their teachers during the first few weeks of school. Once again this year, students will have the opportunity to earn rewards for their positive behavior. The behavioral data collected through discipline reports helps us track behavior patterns in various environments and re-teach expectations as necessary. We appreciate your efforts at home to support this endeavor.
As in past years, we ask that parents purchase the following supplies if they are required for your child’s classroom: glue, glue sticks, markers (all types), colored pencils, regular pencils, crayons, composition books, notebooks and paper, and scissors. We will continue to support those families with financial constraints. We will only stock a limited number of these items in the building. We will also supply other items which are not on the list but are necessary for instructional purposes.
Please join us for a Welcome Back BBQ on Wednesday, August 16th from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. This will be a great opportunity for students to meet their teacher, see their friends, and play Gaga.
We also look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night on Thursday, August 24th from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. (adults only).
Have a great rest of the summer, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all soon!
Sincerely,Scott Davis, Principal
