Our school community continues to be a truly vibrant place with everyone engaged in their learning and enjoying themselves tremendously. It is hard to believe that we are at the mid-point of our first trimester already.
Trimester 1 Progress Reports will be issued next Tuesday, Oct 10th. We will send a digital copy as well as a hard copy for each student. Hard copies will be bundled by family and an envelope sent home with the youngest student in the family. Please be sure to check those backpacks next Tuesday and as always please contact us should you have any questions.
It is important to note that Progress Reports are simply that, a report on progress at the mid-point of each trimester. Think of these reports as a “half-time” check-in of the game plan. An indicator signaling that first half outcomes were met and all systems are “go” heading into the second half. Alternatively, the indicator may be that there is a need to focus, adjust or tweak the game plan with a goal of improving the outcome in the second half. At the end of each trimester, a full much more detailed report will be shared.
Fall Break is upon us at the end of next week. Time to press the “pause button” and take some well-deserved R&R to recharge before we head into the end of our 1st trimester. To encourage our young readers, I have asked everyone to take a picture of themselves and family reading someplace in the world over the break. We will be sending a link to a shared Google folder and ask that you upload pictures to this location. We will do this again during our winter break.
Finally, we wish to share that in addition to mornings prior to school and scheduled class periods with the teacher, the Library is also open for students each day after-school until 4:00pm.
Thank you for your continued support and enjoy your weekend.
