January is a very fragmented month for us and not to mention the warm to cold weather we are having. Considering I am not a cold weather girl, I am not complaining. Only in the South do we go from temperature in the low thirties to highs in the 70s’ in the same week!!!January is also one of those weird months where we only have two full weeks of school.
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. Make plans now to attend our 90th Anniversary celebration scheduled for April 7th at 1:00pm here at Hyatt Park.
Hopefully many of you are looking forward to the long weekend with your child(ren) next week. Teachers will have a professional development day on Friday, so students will be out on Friday and Monday. Please take the time to discuss the contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. After the holiday on Monday, we will continue our work in the 3rd nine weeks of the school year as we prepare for the 2nd 90 days. Please encourage your children to persevere and put forth their best effort.
We are in the testing season, which will continue until May. 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. Report cards will be coming home on Thursday, January 23rd. Be on the lookout for information on our 2nd nine week’s school wide assembly. February 3rd, which is fast approaching is also our 100th day of school, believe it or not.
Make plans now to attend our next PTO/SIC meeting scheduled for this coming Monday, January 13th at 5:30pm. We promise not to keep you long!
Please come in to volunteer whenever you can, we’d love to have you. You are always welcome! Together we can do great things!!!
