Dear Parents,

     We were very happy to see so many of you at our Curriculum Night, August 31st. Curriculum Night is a special time for parents to learn more about what their children will learn this year, and about the specific expectations of their teacher and grade level. Research makes it clear that when parents are aware of learning expectations they are better able to help their children succeed. In fact, there is plenty of research that shows that any parent involvement results in more learning, whether it be coming to PTO or a Curriculum Night, or volunteering for Field Day. When parents come to the school to learn or assist, children get a clear message that school is important and is a part of their family values. Those students then do better when it comes to learning. So, thank you to all who came. And remember, there are plenty of other opportunities for involvement. Our first PTO meeting is on Tuesday, September 12, at 6 P.M. We also love to have volunteers at the parent drop off line and in the cafeteria. And of course there are special project such as Field Trips, Flick on the Field and the Spring Fling. All involvement makes us a closer school family, and encourages student learning. To lean about volunteer opportunities contact Martha in our office at 458-0033.

Best wishes,

Mrs. Vertrees
