West Point Connection
As I prepare for this annual Harvest Parade today, I can’t believe we are ready to begin the month of November. From universal screenings, data collection, rigorous curriculum, and fantastic added fun from families involved in PTS, our days are full and fast.
It was so great to see so many of you at our Math Night for grades K-5. The children were even more excited to share their expertise in their learning of the Bridges Math program. Please send any further questions to your child’s teacher or me. We are hoping that each additional year of this program will show growth in student math understanding and achieving! Unfortunately, our Harvest parade had to be held inside, but I appreciate your understanding and glad that so many of you were still able to attend. I also want to thank you for the canned goods you provided. The Food Bank will be most appreciative. Our Food To Go Program is now funded 3 out of 4 weeks per month, due to the success of the Spaghetti Dinner. I LOVE being part of a CARING community!
I look forward to seeing many of you during Parent/Teacher conferences. Thank you for taking the time and interest to hear about your child’s progress. You are such a vital player in your child’s education, and we are happy to share your child’s successes and possible concerns. TEAM is how we help children reach their potential.
We look forward to our annual Veteran’s Day Assembly, one of the most special days of the year. Our assembly will be Nov. 7 at 9:30. Once again this year, we will be hearing some special words from our honored guests. Dismissal of all students will take place at 11:10 that day, due to parent/teacher conferences. Then, before you know it, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. I wish all of you special times with family and friends.
Our PTS meeting this month is Nov. 12th at 6:30. We would like to invite you to listen to our guest speaker, Len Lender, as he discusses the additional safety measures Hempfield has put into place.
Please contact me with any concerns. Although I do my best to address situations as quickly as possible, there are times that situations involve investigating several parties before I can get back to you. In an effort to be fair and true, I never want to falsely accuse or dismiss any student in any situation. And, sometimes, things are NOT always as they appear. But, I do my best to resolve situations quickly and firmly. Thanks for your support and understanding, in advance,
Have a wonderful holiday break!
