Dear Parents Guardians and Students,
"November is Education Month." November is a busy time for all of us.
On November 29 and November 30 parents will have an opportunity to meet with their child's teacher to discuss the first quarter progress report. If you have not scheduled your appointment, please contact your child's teacher for a day and time. Please note that on November 29 there will be no school for children and the conferences are from 2:00-8:00 p.m. On November 30, the children will be released from school at 12:00 noon. Lunch will not be served on the half day. The conferences will run from 1:00-3:28 p.m.
Please refer to the attached calendar for specific times and dates of other important events and changes in schedules.
While school and work can get quite hectic at times, please take a few moments to be reflective. There are so many wonderful things that we should not take for granted. With Thanksgiving upon us, please remember to give our children that extra hug and kiss and tell them how much they mean to us. This helps to "Fill their Buckets." Use the long holiday weekend to meet with friends and family to share stories of your past. It is these kinds of conversations and gatherings that help our youngsters to bring experiences, knowledge, and memories to the classroom. The more opportunities children have to speak and listen, the more able they are to make connections when reading. These conversations also help students to develop "seeds" for writing and background knowledge for reading. Parent involvement comes in many forms. Sharing stories with your family is yet another way to "Make Every Minute Count."
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Yours in East Broadway Pride,
