2014 Halloween Parade
This and That
On Tuesday, October 28, 2014 we will be having our first School Site Council meeting. The meeting will be held at 3pm in the library. All parents and community members are welcome to attend. The school plan will be shared at this meeting. The plan is still in draft form but it contains the academic goals, attendance goals, physical fitness goals and character education goals for the 2014-2015. Information about the school plan will be on the website after the Board of Trustees has approved the plan.
Please also remember that the Halloween Parade is scheduled for 8:45am on Friday, October 31st. It promises to be a great day! Please make sure you stand behind the area in which students are parading so that everyone can view the parade.
A big shout out goes to Jessica Salamida and Liz Heaney (and their work crew) for all their hard work on the Monster Mash. If it wasn’t for their dedication to this event, the event would not have happened. We, as a school, are so appreciative of all their hard work!
Sunset Elementary Principal
Dear Sunset Families:
Happy October! It’s hard to believe that the month of September is already gone! Time has flown this year as students have gotten used to the routine of school and learning.
October is always a busy month! On October 9th, the staff will be busy delving further into the new units of study in writing. They received an overview in August for this new program and now the staff is examining writing practices and the study of narrative writing.
Goal setting conferences are a great time for teachers to connect with parents. Please look for information from your child’s teacher as to the date and time of your conference. Please take advantage of this time to meet with the teacher, ask questions, learn about their program and to find some attainable goals for your child.
PTO’s Monster Mash is coming up on October 24th. Each grade level will have a booth and fifth grade will have their traditional haunted house. The money that each grade level raises will go toward the cost of field trips. It should be a fun night with dancing in the MP.
Halloween falls on a Friday this year. We invite you to attend our parade, which will be held at the school at 8:45 in the morning. Your teacher will send out more information as the date gets closer.
We continue to look for parents who are interested in supervising students from 8:10-8:40 in the morning and from 2:35-3:05 in the afternoon. This is a paid position. If you are interested, please contact the office. We are in need!
Supervision before school is available from 8:15-8:30. Please make sure you are not on school grounds prior to this as there is no supervision for students. We want to make sure the students are safe!
