Digging Deeper!
We had a great time at our first Lunch-N-Learn of the season this past Friday. For those new to our school, this is a time for you to come and spend lunch with your child. (Bring a special lunch to school if you wish.) Our teachers work hard to plan an activity to answer trend questions that have come up in what we are doing in the classroom. This past Friday, our first grade team planned an activity around math. Math has changed so much over the time since some of us were in school that we want to help everyone understand the transition to how we focus on multiple approaches to problems solving. I know that as I have visited classrooms lately, teachers are taking the training that they have recently had and using it to rework their instructional approach. Please know that we will continue to focus on professional development in reading and math this year and each Tuesday afternoon during faculty meetings and during grade level planning times, we are digging deeper into the ways to help our children be successful in the concepts and standards.
PTO has their first Firehouse Sub Night on Tuesday from 5-9PM. Eat in or drop by and pick up dinner. The proceeds go to our PTO and sponsor many activities that our school hosts.
If we can ever assist, please do not hesitate to contact us!

**If you are picking up by car, please remember that we only have staff on duty until 3:00 each afternoon. Many afternoons, teachers are in meetings and cannot stay and watch your child after this time. If you are running late, please call the school and let us know so your child will not be worried about you! The YMCA offers an afterschool program on our school site. After 3:00, it is considered a late pick up.
