As we move into the middle of November there are a few celebrations to be noted, some dates to be aware of, and the conclusion of the first marking period.
First, on November 11th we celebrated Veterans Day. It is one day of the year to recognize all the members of the armed forces who protect our freedom and the many services they do for us in times of need.
Second, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving on November 28th. This holiday is a time to give thanks for what we have and give to those who are less fortunate. We will be collecting dry and canned goods at each of the schools.
Third, we will be having parent’s night where you can meet with your child’s teacher to discuss his or her academic progress, areas where improvement could be made, and important events for the rest of the year. The High School will greet parents on November 26th and the Elementary School meetings will come first on November 21st. The Kindergarten and the Pre-K will be later in the year in April.
As always you can get information concerning the schools at the school or district website. Please make sure you are on the parent portal and have signed up for the Realtime app to review any information concerning your child. Additionally, each school posts information on many social media outlets and many teachers send you information through individual messaging systems to alert you to homework and assignments. We want you to be informed so that together you the parent, with the teachers and administrators, will give each child the opportunity to be successful.
