Notes from Boosterthon Friday

Oct 24th, 2014

Boosterthon

Today was the big day for our “fun run” and color run! With the sun shining, fall leaves on the trees, parents cheering us on, and an enthusiastic Boosterthon team leading the way, the students completed their laps and ended the day with the color run. The students had fun and it was a perfect day to be outside enjoying God’s gift of beautiful fall weather.

A big thank you for the APO chairs, Sarah Johannes and Roberta Dietrick, for planning and organizing the event. Thanks to the awesome Boosterthon staff for their work and enthusiasm. And a huge thank you to all the students and parents who participated and helped make this a great fundraiser and fun event for our school.

Pledging remains open this weekend and money collected can be turned in to school by Thursday, October 30 or paid online. Any questions, please feel free to contact the school.

Conference Details

Reminder – we have mid-trimester conferences this week. NOTE: 1:00 dismissal on Thursday. NO SCHOOL on Friday. Extended day is available.

  • Wednesday, October 29 – 4:00-8:00
  • Thursday, October 30 (1:00 dismissal) – 2:00-8:00
  • If you prefer more than the scheduled time, please contact the teacher to schedule a separate conference so more time will be available.

MAP testing results will be shared with you at conferences. Since this is our first time testing with MAP, the teachers will share basic data and numbers for you. The staff is training this year to learn more about how to use this information to help set goals for students, determine placement, along with teacher input, and look for growth over the year. We will take another test this spring. We will continue to keep you up to date as we learn more about the MAP tests and share resources with you so you can utilize this at home to help your students as well.

Breakfast with the Principal

We held our first Breakfast with the Principal this past Thursday. Thanks to APO for hosting and to all the parents who attended. We shared school updates and initiatives, along with some information that is helping guide us as we put our strategic plan into action. The Power Point is available here in PDF. If you have any questions after reviewing it, please feel free to contact me.

Drop Off Reminder

When dropping off students in the morning, please be mindful of the residential area surrounding our school. Some neighbors have expressed concern over the speed of cars heading into the parking area. For the safety of all, and to be good neighbors, please drive slowly as you enter the neighborhood area. Thanks for your attention to this.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
