Vigilante Neighbor Warning

For those of you who are new to the school, and for the returning families, I’m sorry to report that the vigilante neighbor is at it again! Parents, it is imperative that you follow all traffic and safety precautions when in the school zone and while children are present. It is not OK to rush and race to school to avoid being late as this is when accidents occur. Please be aware of the neighbor at Lena and Gault who continues to chase female drivers who have committed some kind of traffic violation. He drives a red utility truck with a black cargo rack. He has a medium build, is Caucasian, and has a full dark red beard. He proceeds to block the driver in the cone zone with his truck and then berates the driver for her traffic violation and then the morning drop off staff for not somehow enforcing how people drive to school.  The police have been called on each occasion. If you are the victim of this behavior, or have witnessed it, please do not engage this individual. Keep your window closed and door locked. If you can do so safely, record the incident so that it can be shared with the police.

Annual Title 1 Meeting & Back to School Night

 Please join me this Wednesday evening in the auditorium at 4:30 for the important back to school presentation followed by classroom visitations from 5-6pm. It is very important that you attend Back to School Night so that you know how our school is run and what important programs we have to offer this year.

Summer Math Challenge & DJ Dance Party, 8/30, 1-2pm

Congratulations to the 39 students who passed the math fluency challenge! They have free dress on Thursday and get to participate in the DJ Dance Party! For the students how did not pass, your work is cut out for you! 1st-2nd graders are expected to fluently add and subtract within 20 without having to think about it by the end of 2nd grade. 3rd graders should know their multiplication facts 0-12 by heart by the end of 3rd grade! 4th and 5th graders should not only know their facts, but also the division facts fluently. It is imperative that you as parents make your children memorize these facts at home. The children learn the concepts in class and solve problems in school, but the memorization of the facts occurs at home!

Attendance Matters

This is only the 10th day of school and we already recognize attendance issues. Please make sure your children arrive before 8am! Also, please do not ask for your child to be released right before the dismissal bell rings as this interferes with the teacher’s ability to go over homework or last minute directions with the students. Students will not be released in the last 10 minutes of the day unless prior arrangements have been made. You will need to wait for the bell to ring to pick up your child. The school has also hired an attendance counselor, Jeannine Pugliese, who will make home visits and follow up with any families with chronic absenteeism.
