Happy spring to everyone! I want to start off this month thanking all of our parents, students, teachers and staff for all that you did to make our ELO Tutoring Camp such a huge success during the month of April. Everyone pitched in and we had a great learning experience for the students as a result.
This month, it is with great pleasure that I send out congratulations to Caniya Daniels, 5th Grade, Mrs. Gordon’s class, who is being honored at a special awards ceremony on Thursday, May 7th at Plantation High School for having perfect attendance every year from Kindergarten through 5th grade! During most years, Caniya never even came late or was picked up early! Congratulations Caniya, we are so proud of you.
This month, we will be having our last SAC meeting of the year on Wednesday, May 13th at 3:15p.m. Frank Girardi, from the Facilities and Construction Department will join us to lead us through the process of making a proposal for the spending of the $100,000.00 that the school gets to decide how to use from the SMART bond. I hope that as many parents as possible will be able to come out and join us for this exciting and important decision making process.
The final PTA General Meeting and elections of next year’s officers will be held in conjunction with our last Title I Parent Night on Thursday, May 14th at 6:00p.m. Please come out to learn about how fitness and nutrition can help your child to improve their reading and math skills. We will have some great activities and lots of great healthy snacks to go along with our sandwiches!
Please be sure to help us spread the word to all incoming Kindergarten students and families that will be new to our school that our registration for the 15-16 school year has begun! It’s very important that parents come in as soon as possible to register for next year. There is no need to wait until summer is over. The office will be open all summer for everyone’s convenience and registration will be available all summer.
