We have received great feedback after sending out Friday’s email, and would like to follow up with a few items.
On Friday, September 2nd, from 10:00-2:00 we invite parents and students to bring in their classroom supplies to the school and meet their teacher. This will help alleviate the abundance of supplies on the first day of school.
Please note the following on the 2011-2012 Academic Calendar
We will have two weeks off for Winter Break, as well as two weeks off for Spring Break. We plan to have an enrichment camp available the second week of Spring Break for our students. We will have more information about fees and options in the next few months.
We will not have school during parent-teacher conferences to allow optimal time for parents to meet with their child’s teacher. Also, our last conference with parents will be on the Monday and Tuesday after the last day of school.
Please make note of the “Trimester Wrap-Up’s” on the calendar. It is important for students to be present during these times because we will review the trimester and will assess our students’ understanding of the trimester’s themes and concepts. This is an important piece of assessing students based on their own learning and growth.
Please mark your calendars for the following:
Wednesday, August 31st, 6:00-8:00pm is “Back To School Night” at Bethlehem Lutheran Church. This evening will be for parents only to come and learn more about our school and visit the classrooms.
Tuesday, September 13th, 6:00-8:00pm is “Information Night.” Parents are invited to come to learn more about your child’s classroom, teacher, and curriculum. There will be time for questions for the teacher, director of curriculum, and principal during this time.
If you have any additional questions, comments or feedback, please feel free to contact us through email or phone 503-473-0416.
