Welcome to Dr. Magnuson's monthly newsletter,
Principal’s Message – January 2020
We are off and running into 2020! Time to start a clean slate with new goals, new attitudes, and a fresh new start. This month you can share activities with your child to celebrate Trivia Day, Appreciate a Dragon Day, and National Kazoo Day. January is also National Book Month, National Hobby Month, National Get Organized Month, It’s Okay to Be Different Month, and International Creativity Month. There is definitely plenty to do with your children!
With the weather getting a bit more severe, be sure your students have their coats, hats, and gloves each day in case we’re going out for recess. The fresh air and exercise is beneficial to their overall learning for the day. Remember to keep an eye on the weather for storms, and check out the news for school closings in case of dangerous conditions. If schools are open, please remember to leave early and take your time getting here safely.
This month we’ll be taking the mid-year NWEA tests to see how much growth your child has made and what particular topics we need to go back and cover again. The school will be closed on Monday, January 20 to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Dr. King’s special day is usually spent as a day of service so spending some time with them volunteering in the community would be a great way to salute his work.
If your family is looking for a small environment with a strong focus on academics, come on in and take a tour of the school! We can talk about what your child needs and ways to ensure their success.
Let's make it a great winter!
Parents: Don't forget! We welcome you to come volunteer for any event you see advertised, and you can expect requests from the PTT in the upcoming weeks. We all look forward to seeing you in the classrooms, lunchroom, playground, and special events.
As always, I have an open door policy. Feel free to contact me directly, should you have any questions or concerns!
