I can hardly believe we are into November! Here we are, already facing the holiday season. The year is flying by and great things continue to happen at Butcher-Greene!
First, I’d like to take this time to extend a big thank you to parents for the excellent turn-out we experienced for Parent/Teacher Conferencing! To this date, we have had 98% participation and we are hoping to reach 100%! If you were unable to conference with your child’s teacher during scheduled conference times, it is never too late, just give our office a call at 316-5400. We hope this time communicating and collaborating with your child’s teacher proved beneficial. It takes us all working together to help our children experience academic success.
Also, thanks to the many parents who supported their child’s academic success by attending our first quarter Awards Assembly! Your attendance means so much to our students. Please note on pages 6 and 7 in the November newsletter, students who earned Honor Roll, Principal’s Honor Roll, and Perfect Attendance. We had 67 students with perfect attendance our first quarter of school. Remember, that in order for a student to have perfect attendance they must be here daily with no tardies or early releases. Please encourage your child to attend school daily and promptly, as this helps not only to promote academic success, but is a valuable life skill to acquire. Remember our attendance goal is to have a minimum of 90% of our students here 90% of the time. We are currently at 89%.
Parents, be sure to mark your calendars for Thursday evening, November 20th, at 6:00p.m. for our Family Literacy Night and PTA sponsored Book Fair!! We will also enjoy our first music concert of the year along with an Art Exhibit. This will be a great evening of fun for all! Watch for upcoming flyers! Other dates you will want to remember are: mid-term reports, early release dates and the dates for Thanksgiving break. These dates can be found on page 5 in the November newsletter.
Last month I shared with you the work our BG School Neighborhood Council began with providing free English classes here at the school. We are currently working on plans for our big spring event – our Safety Fair/Festival to be held on May 16th. Won’t you join us and get in on the planning and fun? We’d love to have you! Our next meeting is on Tuesday, November 18th at 5:30-6:30p.m. in the Library Media Center.
Butcher-Greene is committed to challenging our students daily to stretch and grow. Don’t hesitate to drop in at any time or to call the office at 316-5400 if you have questions, suggestions, or concerns. We are here for our children! And don’t forget to take a look at student academic progress on our updated front data wall! I am so proud of our students’ growth!
May this Thanksgiving find you thankful for the often overlooked blessings of health and the love/support of family and friends. Enjoy the holiday!
