I hope that everyone has had the opportunity to relax and enjoy their summer vacation. As we kick off the 2023-2024 school year, I am very excited to welcome back returning and new students. I am pleased to announce our new staff. Please welcome Ms. Love, who will be teaching middle school ELA, Mr. Toussaint, who will be teaching science, Ms. Smith, our new PreK paraeducator, Ms. Simmons, our new Academic Interventionist for grades K-2, and Ms. Marshall, our new school counselor. We also have instructional assignment changes. Ms. Wilson will now instruct first grade and Ms. Drake will instruct Kindergarten.
This year we have many opportunities for our students. We will continue with teacher-led afterschool programs, and opportunities for students in grades 3-5 to work safety patrol positions and be classroom buddies, as well as our middle school students to assist with the PBIS store and office jobs. As we prepare to return, students will be returning to a REQUIRED uniform. Students must wear a yellow, white or forest green shirt with a collar and khaki or black pants (please see insert).
We are also looking to activate our PTA and are looking for parents/guardians who are interested in joining and supporting our school. There are many exciting activities that we would like to put on for our students this year (Mother/Son Dance, Father/Daughter Dance, Talent Show and more), and we need assistance.
Please note the important dates below. We are looking forward to seeing our scholars on August 28, 2023.
