Fall is in the Air!
Can you feel it? The crispness sneaks into the air at times. The leaves haven't changed yet, but they are hinting at it. The crows are beginning their daily songs. We are feeling some relief from the sun on the playground. The excitement is like a butterfly emerging in our tummies. Such fun times are ahead!
September is Attendance Awareness Month. In celebration, we are greatly encouraging all children to attend everyday. A classroom from each grade will get to keep a weekly trophy for perfect attendance, and in this primary age frame, that is big stuff! Please send your child to school with contagious sickness being the only reason for absences. Do not keep a child out the whole day for a doctor's visit. They are learning so much during this time frame that it affects their continued school career success. Studies show that children who miss in September will struggle to keep up their attendance the whole year long. Let's keep our special little ones in school!
We are finally finishing our beginning of the year benchmarks and getting down to the business of our grade levels. We are learning much. We still may feel groggy getting up in the mornings and not wanting to come to school, but the teachers will get over it soon enough. LOL! If the students are feeling it too, it is normal and this too shall pass.
Our Kindergarten field trip will be coming up soon in October as we make our way to the pumpkin patch. Keep checking the calendar for all our exciting events.
Meanwhile, we wish to give a great BIG THANK YOU to all those who have helped get our year off to a great success! The back-to-school shopping spree that was provided by our special Ms. Lorraine was wonderful, and we always feel so blessed with her generosity! As she has in the past, Mrs. Sarah Gunn has been busy helping with gathering and counting our school box tops for monies to help fund some playground equipment. We love you Mrs. Gunn! If you should see any of these wonderful ladies, you may wish to give them a high 5 for their generous and caring spirits that benefit us all.
Please get involved with your child's school. Our students are learning that everyone is special, and that their unique talents help them to make their community a wonderful place to live. Your special talents help our school community as well. We can only be as good as those who are willing to participate to make it a light in our community. Won't you help us shine?
