January is such a fragmented month for us. Thankfully we have not had any delayed start days, but are definitely having some bone chilling cold mornings. January is one of those weird months where we only have two full weeks of school. I am not complaining, but only in the South do we go from temperature in the low teens to highs in the 70s’ in the same week!!!
Please check our web page for upcoming calendar dates and note the dates to the left of my column. Many wonderful opportunities for you to be involved are forthcoming, so don’t hesitate to come in and visit with us.
Hopefully, many of you are looking forward to the long weekend with your child(ren). Please take the time to discuss the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After the holiday on Monday, we will not be out again until spring break in April. That is a long haul!! Please encourage your children to persevere and put forth their best effort.
Benchmark mid year testing continues here at Hyatt Park. Thanks for partnering with us to get students here and on time. We ask that you please monitor your child’s bedtime so that they are getting to bed at a decent hour and getting the rest they need to be successful here at school. As we embark upon this second half of the school year, it is important to note that we have much to do before the school year is up.
Students will be bringing home report cards soon, as the 2nd 9 weeks has ended. As we enter the 3rd 9 weeks and the 2nd semester of the school year, it is a good time to set expectations for finishing out the year strong. We invite you to join us on Friday, January 27th for our 2nd nine week’s school wide assembly; 8:30am for 3rd -5th grades and 9:00am for 5k-2nd grades. January 27th is also our 100th day of school, believe it or not.
PTO kicked off our Donut Sale fundraiser this week. Our goal is 600 boxes. A reminder that money and orders are due next Wednesday, January 18th. The class with the highest sales on every grade level will receive a popcorn party. We appreciate your efforts.
There are still lots of funds that have not been turned in from our fall candy sale. It is not too late to bring those funds in. Make plans now to attend our next PTO/SIC meeting scheduled for Monday, January 23rd@5:00.
Please come in to volunteer whenever you can, we’d love to have you. You are always welcome!
