Sailor Social This Thursday, 5:30-7:00 PM

Come out and enjoy some food, music, and fun with our Sailor families on Thursday from 5:30-7:00 for the Fall Sailor Social! Order from one of the food trucks, preorder pizza to pick up, or bring your own dinner and join our Sailor families on the playground!  Please keep all children out of the smaller, fenced-in preschool playground. This area will be locked because of the breakable toys that are in the area and problems that have occurred on multiple occasions in the past. Look for details coming home in Friday Folders.


Please be prepared as lines can get long at the food trucks. To order pizza for pickup at the event, please go to Pizza orders must be placed by 7 PM on Monday, September 11th. We are unable to accommodate late orders.


Instructional Assistant Appreciation Day: Friday, September 15th

At a time of significant staffing shortages in schools, we are so fortunate to be fully staffed with a professional group of 21 instructional assistants. All of our "crew" assistants focus their energy on building relationships, instruction, and supporting student learning. Each kindergarten class has one instructional assistant. In first grade, each instructional assistant supports two classes. We have three instructional assistants who focus on supporting students in need of academic intervention across one or more grade levels. Finally, we have instructional assistants who support students with special needs. Last year, we began a new initiative in which instructional assistants in kindergarten supported upper-grade students individually or in small groups for one 40-minute block each day, and we now have some preliminary data that suggests that this effort supported positive student outcomes. This structure will resume again this year in a couple of weeks.  


If your student has an instructional assistant in his/her room or receives support from an instructional assistant, please consider sending in a note, card, or other token of appreciation next Friday to show our instructional assistants how much they mean to our community.


Save the Date for Curriculum Nights: 9/19 and 9/20

Parents and guardians are invited to join their children's grade-level teachers to learn about curriculum and instruction at their child's grade level. Please leave children at home to the extent possible as the evening is geared toward adults. There are two sessions each night to allow parents/guardians to attend two sessions in case of siblings in the same grade range. If you have only one child in the grade range, you may attend the session of your choosing based on your schedule. 

Grade K-2: Tuesday, September 19th

First session: 5:30-6:15 (End time adjusted.)

Second session: 6:30-7:15 (Beginning time adjusted.)

Grade 3-5: Wednesday, September 20th  

First session: 5:30-6:15 (End time adjusted.)

Second session: 6:30-7:15 (Beginning time adjusted.)

Snacks are needed . . . because we all forget sometimes. 🙂 If you would like to sign-up to bring Goldfish Crackers in for students who occasionally forget to bring a snack from home, please click here. Your child can drop them off in the main office. Thank you so much!
