Dear Butcher-Greene Families,
Thanks to those of you who joined us for our Second Annual 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. Be looking for your child’s Ed Performance report, along with an interpretation of their scores in the tested areas of math and reading, to be coming home in their Friday folders on February 5th. Also be looking for mid-term progress reports which will be coming home on Friday, February 13th. If you have any further questions in regards to your child’s mid-term progress report or Ed Performance 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! Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 12th for a Principal’s Coffee beginning promptly at 6:00 p.m. in the Library Media Center. This Coffee is primarily geared for parents of 3rd - 5th graders, but anyone is welcome! We will be sharing important information regarding the state-wide MAP test which is given to students in grades 3-5 in mid-April through mid May. Also, our fifth graders will be exhibiting and sharing their Science Fair projects and our First Lego League team will be having demonstrations as well. You won’t want to miss this exciting evening!
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. This 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!
