Dear Butcher-Greene Families,
Thanks to those of you who joined us for our Family Fitness Celebration! We experienced a wonderful turn-out and it was a great evening of fun! Big thanks go out to our P.E. instructor, Mrs. Boles-Pelzer, for planning the event and to our PTA for helping us host it!
Can you believe we are already in the third quarter of school? Butcher-Greene continues to set high expectations for our students. As second semester got underway, we took time to assess individual student academic progress made since the beginning of the year. We continue to align our instruction to support our learners. Be looking for mid-term progress reports and SRI assessment reports (grades 2-5) which will be coming home on Friday, February 12th. If you have any further questions in regards to your child’s mid-term progress report or SRI assessment, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or myself. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress and to share information that will help you in assisting your child.
This month we have a couple of events that we know you will want to be sure to attend. We have two grade level Parent afternoons scheduled for February 19th for our 5th grade parents and February 26th for our Kindergarten parents! You won’t want to miss these exciting events as you will share in student academic projects and activities and will see your child perform in concert and view their artwork! You will receive more information regarding this special afternoon in the near future. Additional important dates to keep in mind can be found on the February newsletter calendar!
Exciting learning opportunities are always occurring at Butcher-Greene! As parents, you can assist us in supporting your child’s education in a variety of ways! Be sure they come to school promptly each day and try to make any outside appointments after school whenever possible. Be sure you know your child’s current attendance percentage and remember the state requires each child to have a minimum of 90% attendance. Our school percentage for the month of January is 89.5%. Having a minimum of 90% attendance applies to students maintaining VIP status as well. Late arrivals and early releases prior to the end of the school day negatively impact your child’s attendance rate. Review with your child, papers that come home in Friday folders and Homework folders. Come join us on a field trip and know that you are always welcome to visit our classrooms. Your partnership makes all the difference! Your continued support in working together with us by focusing on the same targeted goals and using the same language is proving most beneficial. Our students are making steady gains!
