As I write this, we are concluding our week of Parent-Teacher Conferences. Although these conferences are scheduled once a year, please know that you can reach out to meet with your child's teacher at any time during the year. Open, ongoing communication between the home and school is a factor that positively affects student success.
I am confident that many of you were impressed during conferences with the level of our teachers' content knowledge, skill set, enthusiasm for learning and understanding of child development. Please take a moment to nominate a teacher and an educational services professional (CST member, nurse, SBSS) in our building for recognition of Middletown Village's Teacher of the Year 2017 and Middletown Village's Educational Services Professional of the Year 2017. Nomination forms can be accessed here as well as in our virtual backpack.
The month of December is a month full of activities! Although many of the activities families are involved in are fun, they can also be stressful. We've added a new section to our school website - School Counselor's Corner- and Mrs. Richardson's first posting is handling holiday stress. I encourage you to follow Mrs. Richardson on Twitter for articles offering tips and strategies for life's situations.
It is important that you stay in the know by checking this site and the virtual backpack weekly as well as linking the school's Google calendar to your personal device. I wouldn't want your family to miss out on anything!
Please be sure to check the Google calendar below for upcoming school events and activities.
