Welcome to our Friday newsletter. I use this article to provide information, share fun things that occur, and let people in on a little more about myself. We have had a great first week back to school! Our students are learning the different routines and expectations, meeting new classmates, and re-establishing friendships. Our teachers are planning engaging team building lessons, while also starting to give our beginning of the year assessment requirements.

Here are some helpful hints as we move into the 2nd week of school:

  • Please check your child’s backpack EVERY NIGHT! There will be important papers that need your attention. Your child is expected to read or be read to at least 20 minutes a night. Some nights your child will have work that they have completed in school that you will want to celebrate.
  • With a permanent marker, you want to label your child’s lunchbox, water bottle, fall jacket, and backpack. If you have a child that often misplaces items, you might want to label other items too.
  • Students are expected to be in classrooms for 7:30 a.m. If students arrive after that time they will be considered tardy.
  • If your child will be absent or tardy, you must call the Main Office (744-3221). We have an answering machine if you need to call outside of the working day.
  • Our Main Office hours are from 7:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
  • Our after-school program, Project Promise already has a waiting list. Mrs. Doucette has contacted families that have sent in the registration paperwork. If you haven’t filled out the paperwork or are on the waiting list, you can register (there is a cost) your child at the Tapply-Thompson Community Center in Bristol, NH. We have a bus that will drop your child off at the Center each afternoon.
  • If you send your child with money for Café Services, please put it in an envelope with his/her name on it. A good rule of thumb whenever your child brings in money to school—it should come in an envelope with details.

I am excited for a great school year! We have an amazing group of dedicated and hard-working faculty and staff. All of our classroom teachers have a system for communicating with families. Some are using Class DoJo, while others have created their own system. We believe that your child’s education is a partnership between school and home. If you have a question, concern or suggestion, please reach out.

Have a great long weekend and see you back Tuesday, September 3rd.
