Principal's Message - October 2016
Dear Sharpstein families,
September certainly did fly quickly by! Your children and their teachers have been very busy setting the stage for a rich year of learning. By now, building and classroom procedures are well-ingrained, and students are deep into the literacy, math, science, and social studies content they will learn this year. Students have begun taking some of their science lessons in our garden, and will also begin harvesting and making tasty treats out of the fruits of their labor this next week.
A huge shout-out to our amazing PTA for their work in providing such a wonderful Sharpstein Carnival. Thankfully the weather cooperated and we were able to go ahead (although as a first-time dunk tanker, I wish it had been a LITTLE warmer!) Miles Club, another project of our PTA, is in full swing, and will continue to run every Tuesday and Thursday at lunch time through November 10th. We can always use volunteers for this fun activity, and I promise you will leave with a smile if you do!
Sign up to volunteer for Miles Club here:
Picture Day will be held this coming Tuesday, October 4th. Say cheese!
Fall goal-setting conferences will be held during the 2nd week of October. Watch for an appointment slip in your child’s backpack or AVID Organization tool. We will have an information table in the foyer during conferences, with some of our amazing WAHI AVID students ready to provide information about how AVID has worked for them:
|School Schedule||Conference Schedule|
|Monday, October 10th||Regular school day||NO CONFERENCES|

I am excited to announce I will begin hosting Coffee with the Principal every Tuesday morning in October, from 7:00-7:30 AM in the foyer. I’ll bring the coffee and the listening ears, you bring your thoughts, questions, and ideas. I look forward to talking with you!
