A Message from the Principal
The Fund Run was a huge success thanks to all of you! Over 50 volunteers helped to make the run happen, thank you! If all of the pledges come in, we are on track to see Mr. Goodrich pucker up and kiss a pig!!! Please remember to turn your pledge collections in by Friday April 17th. Thanks again for being such a generous community and to the kids for running so hard for their school.
We are looking to recruit a new parent member to serve on Abernethy’s Site Council Committee for the next two school years (2015/16 & 2016/17). Site Council is a committee of teacher, staff, parent, and administration representatives tasked with increasing student achievement at Abernethy. Site Council meets once a month and requires some additional preparatory time. If you are interested in becoming a member of Abernethy’s Site Council, please email julie at email@example.com, with your name, the grades of your children enrolled at Abernethy, and if you like, a short bio with any relevant experience or interests as it relates to supporting the improvement of student performance. Also, if you think of someone who you feel may be an asset to the group, please encourage them to be a candidate. We will collect nominations through Friday, May 1st and elections will be held the Week of May 4th through a Survey Monkey voting survey. Thanks for your consideration.
It is hard to believe that we are at the point in the year where we are starting to plan for next year’s classes. Attached to the mailer is a parent classroom input sheet. This is your opportunity to share the type of environment that would be most helpful for your child for the coming school year. As you share your thoughts, please refrain from requesting a specific teacher, rather share the characteristics that will benefit your child. Please also feel free to share any friendships dynamics that strongly impact your child’s success. The staff will be spending a great deal of time working to create the best classroom configurations possible for the coming year. There are numerous details that are looked at in creating balanced classrooms. Our goal is to share class placements for the coming year with end of year report cards. This will give you the opportunity to prepare for the transition over the summer.
