Traffic Duty for the Week: Ms. Weisberg’s Class
We had a special guest this morning at our Friday assembly – Queen Elizabeth the First representing our neighbors over at the Theatricum Botanicum. Then (from the pages of history to the halls of science), we honored our amazing student/scientists from Kindergarten to 5th grade who had exceptional entries in last week’s Science Fair. Kudos to all our participants and parent volunteers for making this happen for our students.
Everyone can help make our drop off / pick up circle in front of the school safer and more efficient by only dropping off and picking up in front of the school. Too many of our students are running down the road and even into the street in order to get into their parent’s car. I’m constantly reminding students that you (their parents) have to come all the way up to the circle to turn around, so they should stay on the sidewalk in front of the school. When dropping off your child, please allow them (if they can) to open the door closest to the sidewalk so they can exit on their own – if you stop your car, get out and then open the door for them, it stops the whole line of traffic. Thanks!
And speaking of traffic... please don’t relocate our neighbors’ trash cans if you need more parking space. After one of our neighbors had her trash can moved, it didn’t get emptied for the week...
The Great American Spellcheck is coming up!
Our kids are hard at work learning their words—and hopefully getting lots of pledge support from family & friends in advance of the test on 4/27. We need volunteers to help grade the tests and tally results on Friday 4/27 from 9-10:30 am in Room 8.
Email Julianne Gorman at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available—we would like to have at least 1 volunteer from each classroom, so that it goes quickly!! Coffee and sassy conversation promised!
