A Note from Ms. Henwood
Science and Math Night Wednesday January 22, 2014, 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Something exciting to look forward to in the New Year.
I am very happy to announce we are adding some great science activities to our annual math night. Please bring the whole family and enjoy great hands on math and science activities. The activities are going to be facilitated by our great staff and high school students from Manzano HS. The science activities will be in the cafeteria and the math activities will be in some of the classrooms on the 300 patio. I know the children will have a great time discovering fun and interesting things about science and math.
We have recently finished the first round of district testing. This is new testing for 4th and 5th grade in reading and math and a new format for 1st and 2nd grade in math. Your child’s teacher can go over the assessment with you at your parent teacher conference. They are the two days before Thanksgiving break. You will receive information shortly about conferences.
Important - The do’s and do not’s of Student drop off, pick up and parking.
Students must cross Morris with the crossing guard.
It is very dangerous to have children cross the street close to or between the busses.
The staff parking lot in front of the school is for staff only. This is also the fire lane. Please do not pick up your students in this area.
Parking behind the 300 wing classrooms is for staff. You cannot pull into this area to drop students off and pick them up at the end of the day.
Now you have the do not’s. Here is the best part -
We have plenty of duty staff at the student drop off and pick up on Prospect. Please use this area as your primary drop off and pick up for your children.
Parent – Teacher conferences are Monday and Tuesday November 25 and 26. This time is crucial for you to meet with your child’s teacher and go through work samples, go over your child’s progress report and ask and answer any questions you or the teacher may have. If you have questions, write them down so you don’t forget to ask them. We strive to make this time both positive and informative. We all need to work together as a team to provide the best learning environment for our students.
Thanksgiving Break November 27-29, 2013. Return to school Monday December 2, 2013.
Please have a safe and enjoyable break. We give thanks for our Collet Park Community and how wonderful it is to be a part of this great community.
