Dear Parents Guardians and Students,
I hope each of you enjoyed your time off. January is a busy month. It is a time for reflecting and thinking about ways to improve our lives by making resolutions. It is also an important time for all of our students as they begin to meet with more challenging academic work. The children have been working very hard to learn the skills and strategies needed to be successful readers. The skills they learn now will help them in all of their subject areas and will prepare them for middle school and high school. As I visit each of the classrooms, I am impressed by how much they have learned thus far and the high level of dedication that many have in wanting to succeed. Getting good grades is hard work. The children need your guidance at home, in addition to the support they receive at school, in order to meet these challenges. I thank you for your continued support as we work together to help your children to be the best students they can be.
The home/school connection is essential. I know our students will succeed if we all work together to Make Every Minute Count! To help improve the communication process, we have several means for you to receive school information. Our school news can be found on our monthly newsletter, and on the outside bulletin boards in front and back of the building. In addition, our webpage contains a calendar with information regarding Talent Show rehearsal times, music rehearsals, and extra-curricular dates and times. Please refer to this page often as it is updated regularly. We are also proud to announce that we have begun to use Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Please like us on these platforms to see pictures throughout the week. Our hashtag is #Successatlpsebpolarbears. We hope you enjoy seeing some of the excitement going on at East Broadway.
I wish you a happy and healthy New Year. May all of your New Year's resolutions and dreams for 2019 become a reality!
Yours in East Broadway Pride,
