Events at a Glance
Dot Day, September 12: Wear Dots
The first few weeks of school, all classes will be involved in a Dot Day art project inspired by the children's book, The Dot by Peter Reynolds. The Dot Day movement celebrates creativity, courage and compassion. Visit www.thedotclub.org to learn more! We will use the message, "Make Your Mark Together and See What Happens!" as our theme this year. Students will collaborate across grade levels to create art and be surprised by the visual culmination! Thanks to Robin Henry and Tina Nadeau, our art teachers for organizing these school wide events. On September 12th, wear dots to join in the celebration!
Notes From the Principal
What an amazing start to the school year! With the first phase of the building renovation project nearing completion, our staff worked tirelessly to prepare (in 2 short days) the school for our students arrival. I can't say how impressive everyone (including Trumbell-Nelson construction employees) was through the remarkable process.
Our new website is now available for your visual and informational use. Please visit the scrolling slideshow on the building project, or perhaps read-up on our curriculum, instruction, and assessment page. The newly developed standards-based report cards are at the bottom of the page.
I hope you can join me next Tuesday, September 16 at 9AM for the first Principal Forum of the year. We will meet in the office conference room and discuss the building renovation project and our professional development goals.
From the Health Office
I want to welcome everyone back to school. My name is Laura Perras and I am the new school nurse. I was fortunate to work with Mrs. Shields as her health office assistant last year, so I know many children already. If there is anything I can help you with please feel free to email me or call the office. I have an open door policy and welcome you to stop by any time. I will be posting weekly notes in the Pink Sheet with topics relevant to the season and if there are any concerns I want to update you about. I hope you all have a wonderful school year.
Though school has just begun, Picture Day is right around the corner - Monday, September 15th.
PTO volunteers help make this process smooth and efficient. Are you able to help? If you can spare an hour or more to help in school on Monday, September 15th (anytime between 8:30 and 2:30), please contact parent volunteer Janet Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
