A.B. Combs Families,

 

Thank you for all the support and encouragement our Combs families shared with our teachers and staff for Teacher’s Appreciation Week!  Our staff certainly felt all the love.  Also, Happy Mother’s Day to our Combs moms.  We appreciate all you do to support our school and your amazing children!

 

Yearbooks: Yearbooks were sent home on Friday.  Please submit payment for yearbooks ($17) and/ or school pictures.  If you are not interested in purchasing either of these items, please return items back to your child’s teacher by May 30th.

 

Night of the Arts: Our Night of the Arts will be May 14th, beginning at 6pm. Take a look at the times for each group performance.  Artwork from every student will be on display throughout our building. Please join us to celebrate our leaders in so many different ways!

 

Parking for school events: We have many school events coming up these last few weeks of school.  Please be respectful of our neighbors by not parking in front of driveways, mailboxes, and trash cans.  We appreciate your support and understanding.

 

School-wide Silver Tray Luncheon: We will celebrate AB Combs Day on May 16th with a school-wide Silver Tray Luncheon. The cafeteria will be adorned with tablecloths and centerpieces, and the orchestra from Enloe HS will be playing during lunches. Just like on a typical day, students will be able to bring their lunch from home or buy lunch from the cafeteria.  Here is the menu for the cafeteria that day.  A former Combs teacher will be featured on manners videos that we will view leading up to the event to be prepared for this fancy affair.  We ask that everyone dress for success on this day. 

 

Celebrate Success/Student-Led ConferencesPlease join us on Friday, May 17th, to celebrate our many accomplishments of the school year. We will share data, our data tracking, and awards with one another! Student-Led Conferences will take place at specified times below in students’ classrooms. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • 1st grade: 9:10-9:40

PTA Meeting: The Combs PTA will hold its final PTA meeting on Friday, May 24th at 8:45 in the school cafeteria.  Members will be voting on PTA officers for the upcoming school year.

 

Students not returning for next year: It’s hard to believe, but we are in the beginning stages of preparing for next school year.  Our teacher allotments depend on the number of students we have registered.  If you know your child will not be returning to Combs for the next school year, please email our data manager, Ms. Sarah Ferrell, at sferrell2@wcpss.net

 

Panorama Survey: Help us make your child’s school experience as positive and beneficial as possible by giving honest, thoughtful responses to the questions in our family survey from April 8 - May 17. bit.ly/WCPSSFamilySurvey  This is a district-led survey provided to all families and we welcome your feedback.
