Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving break and are ready for the next four weeks of school before the Christmas vacation. Although this time brings excitement and changes to normal routines, we, at school, will continue to focus on academic rigor and student growth. Students should read each night and every night for at least 20-minutes. Students in grades K-2 should bring home nightly reading canvas bags. In the bags, for most students are both paper decodable books and picture/chapter books. Students need to read to you the paper books and as a family, you can read the picture/chapter books. Educational research has found that students that read for at least 20 minutes a night score academically better on tests throughout their schooling experience. Our students in grades 3-5 have more flexibility in their reading choices. However, it is still essential they are also reading 20 minutes each night. If your child is struggling to find the right genre or isn’t reading, please let his/her teacher know and our staff will help with some selections.

I want to share with you that my family met over Thanksgiving break and I will be out on FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act). My dad’s illness has progressed and needs 24/7 care. My mom has done an amazing job up to this point, however, he needs more care than she can provide. We are working on a long-term care plan.

Although I am not at school, I am confident in our faculty and staff. Things will continue on without a hitch! In addition, from the SAU office, Superintendent Buckley, Anne Holton (Student Services Coordinator) and Kim Sarfde (Curriculum Coordinator) are rotating time at our school.

Have a great weekend!
