Principal's Weekly Message

Good Afternoon,
This is Ms. Gleason and I have 5 important reminders.
First, we continue to Dive into Reading.  Last week, readers read a total of 33,899 minutes bringing our school total up to over 74,000 minutes!  Keep it up.  This week's reward involves extra recess! Remember your logbooks on Thursday mornings.
Second, Monday is the day for our January awards assemblies.  As always, 3rd through 5th-grade awards are in the gym at 8:15 am and Kindergarten through 2nd-grade awards start at 12:00.  Please check backpacks and Tiger Folders along with your Remind and Bloomz apps to see if your child is receiving an award.  We love having family there to celebrate with us.
Third, this week is The Great Kindness Challenge Week.  All week long we will be promoting kindness.  Ask your child each day what act of kindness they were challenged to do and if they met the challenge.  Kindness is the antidote to bullying.
Fourth, if you haven't already done so, please log onto our website and take our parent survey.  The link is right on our homepage if you scroll down under Upcoming Events.  If we can provide you with a computer and Wifi, please stop by the office and we will set you up.  We want to hear from you to know how to serve our families better.
Last, Wednesday the 29th is our Site Council meeting in the library at 2:05 pm.  Anyone interested may attend.
Enjoy the day!

Good Afternoon, Families,
This is Ms. Gleason with your Sunday afternoon call.  I have only 3 things to share:
First, there is no school tomorrow in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  We will see you all on Tuesday for a regular school day.
Second, keep up the good reading!  As a school, you read over 40,000 minutes last week.  To clarify, the reading logs begin each Thursday evening and run through the following Wednesday night.  Please turn them in every Thursday to get your minutes added to our totals and receive your prizes.  We are aware that the logs begin on Friday and run through Sunday.  Please just adjust the order in which you record your minutes.  Thanks!  This week's incentive prizes include hot cocoa served at lunch for Junior Diver Readers and hot cocoa plus pencils and shark snacks for Master Level Readers.
Finally, we want to hear from YOU.  It's the time of year that we reach out to our parents and ask you to complete a survey about our school.  Your answers to these questions matter.  Your feedback is how we form our school engagement goal.  Our staff and the district leadership review your responses and use them to plan school improvements and budget expenditures.  Please look for the survey link to go live on our website and Facebook page starting this Tuesday and running through February 7th.  If you do not have access to a phone or computer, you can come into our school office and you can use a Chromebook to complete this 26 question survey. 
Enjoy your weekend!
