We have had a wonderful start. Our first annual "Clap In" was a success as we had numerous community and district members making the opening to the school year something that put a smile on all faces.
Teachers have been busy collaboratively setting rules and expectations for classrooms, lunch time, and recess. Overall we have had numerous reports about how calm, safe, and organized the building feels.
For School Supply Drop Off/Meet the Teacher we had a wonderful turnout. It was nice to begin the school year with an informal event with you all. Back to School Night had a little lower turn out. Those in attendance have shared appreciation to sign up for volunteer opportunities as well as learning about expectations, curriculum, and procedures.
Our first formal community event is here! Please join us on Friday for Disney's Wreck it Ralph. We will gather in the gym and enjoy a great evening together. I hope to see you there!
Just a reminder.... please remember to pick up and drop off on the sidewalk side of the Drop Off and Pick Up Zone only. We have some parents opening doors where there is a flow of traffic trying to pass, causing some close calls! Also, please stay in your cars when you are picking up. This will make the process move as quickly as possible. Thank you for your help!
Please make sure you have signed up to volunteer at the school or classroom level. We need your help to make Legacy Point the very best place possible. One easy way to volunteer is to collect Box Tops. We are trying to raise money for a rock wall in the gym and could really use your help! We are also looking for donations of recess equipment (basketballs, soccer balls, jump ropes, etc). If you can donate anything we would be appreciative. Our Parent Teacher Organization is hosting an open house at the Anthropology Club house next Tuesday at 4:15. Please stop by, meet some parents, and determine ways to get involved!
Lastly, Please don't forget August 28th is NOT a typical school day. Teachers are requesting for you to sign up for a time slot for your child to take specific assessments . We will use this data to determine an accurate reading level so we can monitor and ensure your child makes a minimum of one year growth regardless of where he/she starts. Data will be shared with you at Parent Teacher Conferences.
As always thank you for your support. It has been wonderful getting to know you and I know this year will be sensational.
