Special Education Chairperson
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
It is hard to believe we have already celebrated the 100th Day of School! The year is going quickly and students are working hard to meet Common Core Standards. Your time and support at home assisting your child/children is greatly appreciated. Working together, I am confident that our students will continue to rise to meet higher expectations.
Beyond the academics, our elementary students are enjoying some after school clubs and activities in addition to special activities within the school day. Thank you to everyone who attended our Parents' Breakfast in February and to PTA and Hartford Staff for supplying parents with delicious breakfast treats! March is Parents as Reading Partners Month (PARP) - our theme is "Wild About Reading!" Many families participated in Family Fun Night activities on March 9th that coincided with PARP Month. It was a fun-filled evening and great to see so many families here participating together! Thank you to our PARP Committee and volunteers who made this night such a success.
Congratulations to our 4th, 5th and 6th graders who participated in "Battle of the Books" on March 14th at Skidmore College. Many schools participated and our 5th and 6th graders brought home the Gold!! All of the students should be recognized for reading 10 books since October and remembering little details about each book in order to answer many difficult questions during the "Battle." I am proud of our students and their dedication to reading!
Some important upcoming activities and events include:
Thank you again for your support outside of the classroom. I look forward to our continued partnership between home and school. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I can be reached at 632-5222 x120 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
