What a wonderful first week of school for our older kids. We are thrilled to be welcoming our kindergarteners today. It is a pleasure to see all of the kids so excited to have a great school year. As we get moving into the school year I wanted to highlight a calendar change. We try so hard to stick to the calendar that was set, but in this case, we need to move the date of Curriculum Night. Curriculum Night has been moved to Thursday, September 14th from 6:00 to 7:30. We apologize for the inconvenience of this change, but the original date fell on Rosh Hashanah. This event is only for adults. There will be two sessions for each classroom (6:00-6:25 and 6:30-6:55). Teachers will be presenting information about the curriculum, expectation, and routines. We ask that you do your best to be present for the beginning of the presentation to minimize disruptions for the group. At 7:00 pm there will be a short presentation to share information about Talented and Gifted (TAG) identification and testing.
The Auction date was inadvertently left off of the calendar. It is scheduled for 5:30 pm on Saturday, February 10th. Mark the date so you don’t miss the fun.
Since we have another grade level starting in the building this week I thought it would be good to repeat the information shared last week about our morning routine:
In order to maintain peaceful, safe hallways in the morning, students and their families are expected to be in the cafeteria, on the playground, or in the main hallway before 8:40. In the morning, teacher plan time allows them to create meaningful, engaging activities for students. Please allow teachers uninterrupted plan time before 8:40. As in the past, there is no supervision in any area except the cafeteria for breakfast. Here are the following changes:
We are all excited to have a truly amazing school year. I look forward to all the learning and growth that is in store for all of us.
The game was close again, but the Jefferson boys basketball team wrapped up a Portland Interscholastic League title, this time with a 72-68 victory over Grant at a packed Jefferson High School gym on Friday.
