It’s Make It Happen Monday Trailblazers and this is Mrs. Graf with a weekly update.
First things first, a big thank you goes out to our teachers and staff who helped up our first Parents Are Connected event last Thursday evening together. Our full staff was here on hand passing our Banks Book of the Year, leading teaching stations, guiding parents to locations, and “making it happen” for our students and families. We had a total of 177 stakeholders in attendance. Thank you to our parents who traveled out to school to spend your evening with us. I hope that you were able to ask your questions regarding literacy and get useful information to support learning at home.
The next BIG thank you goes to our PTA. They did it once again—another successful Fall Festival! There was so much fun on Friday evening; everyone had smiles on their faces. The dunk tank was a hit and a big thanks goes out the teachers who dared to be dunked. A thank you also goes out to the two Dads that braved the dunk tank in support of their child’s classroom and grade level. The Silent Auction was successful and there was some fierce bidding wars going on for some items. J This night would not be possible without the work of many parent, teacher and student volunteers. Thank you Trailblazers for once again pulling together to support our school!
