Thank you for the wonderful level of attendance demonstrated during our three-way conferences, as 83% of our students were able to successfully conduct their three-way conferences. Your interest in your child’s education is one of the critical factors for a child to enjoy a successful school experience, so your support is essential.
Several events are upcoming in like to share information about these events. First, next Wednesday, November 18 is the second annual Van Allen blood Drive, and the responses been very strong, so thank you once again. We have about seven afternoon time slots remaining to schedule an appointment, so if you’re planning on participating, your prompt response is most appreciated.
Once again this fall, will be conducting the annual Van Allen magazine sales. This activity is aimed at promoting literacy in the home, by offering students and parents the opportunity to purchase magazines for children, but also offers adults an opportunity to select individual magazines. The funds raised to this activity are redirected back to the purchase of books for library program.
Last Saturday, December 5, PTA is once again sponsoring Kids’ Christmas. Kid’s Christmas is a wonderful opportunity for children to purchase their holiday gifts at subsidized cost at a one-stop location, and the gifts are even wrapped. This is a wonderful morning for a community and we would encourage all parents to mark the calendar with this event, as this Saturday morning will reap dividends for the family on the 25th, as there are fewer greater joys than sharing gifts with family and friends.
As we turn to page to a new quarter, we will be more diligent in assuring students arrive the start of the school day, and we request your corporation to have your child to school by 8 AM.
