Dear School #5 Families,
On behalf of the School #5 staff, I would like to welcome you back to school! Our entire team has been working diligently to prepare for an exciting and productive school year. We are honored that you have entrusted us with your child’s education and look forward to providing learning experiences that will support their academic, social and emotional growth.
As always, we welcome your partnership towards educating your child. After all, you play a key role in their academic success. To that end, please carefully read the information packet (click this link) which provides details on opening procedures and other important items. In addition, you can support your child by making a commitment to the 5 tips below:
There is much to look forward to this school year. Among other things, we will once again enjoy a shared reading experience through our School-Wide Read Aloud. Our September titles, Wilma Unlimited by Katherine Krull and A Place for Grace by Jean Davis Okimoto, set the stage for our yearlong theme, The Power of Perseverance! My faculty and I will continue to emphasize the importance of perseverance in achieving academic expectations and goals.
Finally, be sure to remind your child to hand in their 30/30 Summer Reading Log during the first week of school. All students who completed the challenge will be invited to a special PTA sponsored after-school ice cream social.
I look forward to greeting our fabulous students on the first day of school, September 2, 2014. Undoubtedly, it’s going to be a 5tastic year!
