Dear Sopris Families,
Welcome to Fall! We are already closing in on the end of our 1st quarter. It always amazes us how the school year seems to go by so quickly! One thing that is keeping Carrie and I very busy this year is a new letter writing program we are trying out to increase student writing and for us as principals to get to know our Sopris Eagles on a deeper level. We are hopeful that your child has mentioned that they have written a letter to us and that they received a letter back. Students seem to be enjoying the authentic nature of writing a letter about whatever they choose and getting a handwritten letter back from us. We would appreciate your help at home reminding your child of this opportunity and supporting our goal to increase the amount of writing our students do!
We have many important events coming up in October, so be sure to see the events list in this newsletter. A couple of important things we want to highlight this month include the following: our big PTA fundraising effort for the year called "Fundrun", STEAM night (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) on Oct. 17th 5:00-7:00pm which is a fun family night with a performance from "Mad Science of Denver" as well as a hands-on activity guided by your child's grade level teachers. and lastly we will have Fall parent teacher conferences at the end of the month Oct. 30th and Nov. 1st.
As always, we thank you for your support of your child and us as a school!
Dave Lindenberg, Principal
Carrie Hassel, Assistant Principal
