November 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

It’s difficult to believe that the first quarter has already ended and that the holidays are approaching!  Quarter 1 report cards will be distributed at our Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 8th or Tuesday, November 13th.  Please return the date and time request form found in your child’s Friday folders so that you can received a confirmed appointment.  Appointments are only 15 minutes, so it is vital that you sign up and arrive on time for your meeting. During the 2nd quarter we have many holidays with plenty of opportunities to visit with family and friends; please schedule these trips around our school calendar so that your child does not become behind academically before the new year.

During this time of year, the weather is unpredictable.  Please send your child in layers and always with an appropriate coat or jacket as well as hats and gloves as needed.  District policy states that outdoor recess will be held if the temperature, including the wind chill, is 20 degrees or above.  There is not indoor supervision available for students who forget their coats. On that note, if you are missing jackets or outdoor items, please check our red lost and found basket in the foyer outside of the main office.  If your student is in need of winter clothing, please see Mrs. Harding in the main office as she has resources to ensure that our families are taken care of. If school is closed due to inclement weather, APS will send out a School Messenger and will post on the district website  If we are not closed, please ensure that you get your child safely to school so that they continue growing academically. Every day counts! We are holding a “Strive for 5” goal and will reward students at the end of the year with a Kona Ice celebration for students who have not missed more than 5 days.  Please remember to call your student in if they have a fever or are vomiting at our attendance line at 303-326-1604. Any days over 9 require a doctor’s note to be excused.

Thank you for your continued support in helping your student learn their best each and every day,

~ Mrs. Harrington
