A NOTE FROM MRS. FORTICHE
Happy New Year!
I hope that the two week winter break with your kids was enjoyable! I can’t wait to hear more from students about all the great things they did with their families during their break. As everyone settles down from their busy holidays, it’s hard to believe it’s already January and we will soon be getting ready for the 2nd semester of the school year.
During the first few months of school, students worked hard with Common Core Curriculum as they grew as learners. As I enter classrooms on a daily basis, students are always eager to share what they are learning as readers and mathematicians. They are always excited to learn new things. It’s evident how much they’ve learned when they are eager to teach others. This is exciting to see! I encourage you to continue to talk to your child about things they are learning at school.
Our students are also working very hard on learning our school’s vision. They are eager to sign the wall of fame outside the cafeteria as they memorize the vision and are able to recite it. In the coming months, we will continue to work with students on the meaning of the school vision. We’ve included our school vision in this January newsletter. Please encourage your child to practice it at home.
As we get ready for the next few months of school, we want to send a reminder regarding our school’s homework policy. Please review the policy on page 2.
Thank you for your support!
