Prekindergarten & Kindergarten Information Night
Volume 10, Issue 19
Dear (Contact First Name),
Happy New Year and Welcome Back. We are excited to jump into the new year with great energy and enthusiasm for learning and growing. We continue to work on our WASC accreditation self-study and prepare for our visit this spring. All of our staff participated in a very productive work day on Monday. One highlight of our day was to look at the vertical alignment of writing development for our children from one grade level to the next. The greatest part of this process is celebrating the things that St. Leander does well, and we are excited that our students are following the writing process, learning about the various elements of writing and becoming great writers! We will continue to update you on information about our WASC process and our visit as it gets closer.
Super Kids-Super Sharing:
St. Leander School is taking part in a Super Bowl project to help local children in need. It's called Super Kids-Super Sharing. You can help by donating gently used or new items including books, sports equipment, school supplies (new, please) and used cell phones. As you may be cleaning out some closets over the Christmas break to make room for new items from Santa, please consider donating these items.
Our collection will take place from January 5-18th, 2016.
Our Student Council will take all donated items to the Super Kids collection event on January 21st.
The Book Fair is coming! Our theme for this year is Groovy! Peace, Love & Books. Please see the flyer in the family envelope to sign up to volunteer. We are also still looking for a chairperson for the book fair, so if you love to be creative and have fun while earning your volunteer hours, contact the school office and sign up to chair this event.
