to the Principal's Corner
Dear Pingree Friends and Families,
Hopefully, we have survived the worst of the winter weather and are looking forward to Spring.
We are celebrating Dr.Seuss’ birthday throughout the week of February 27 to March 3rd. Activities are planned for each day. Dr. Seuss has a great collection of entertaining books that you can read to your child or have your child read to you. His “I Can Read” collection is wonderful for beginning readers.
Kindergarten Registration will be taking place March 1st through 3rd. If you know of a child that will be entering school in the fall and has not notified us, please let us know.
On March 6th the third and fourth grade will be presenting their Winter Concert. Parents are invited to attend at 9:45 AM.
There is no school on March 14th for teacher’s in-service. On March 29th Lifetouch will be here for Class Picture Day. Forms will be sent home prior to that date. The following day March 30th will be our International Festival Day from 6-7:30 PM. Details will be going home soon.
Although the weather is warmer students still need to be dressed appropriately. Spring days can still be chilly by recess time and our students’ health and comfort is important to us. I suggest all students have a light jacket or sweatshirt in their backpacks so that they will have it in the event of a sudden change in weather. We like all students to have the opportunity to go outside and play and enjoy the fresh air.
If you have any issues that you would like to address that concerns your child’s education and well-being please feel free to call and make an appointment so that we can discuss it and make the best decisions for your child. It is important that school and home work together as a team so that the most important people-the children get the education and attention they deserve. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child and you are their most important advocate.
Have a safe and happy March…Sunny days ahead.
Principal, Pingree School
