Final Friday Fun Day is back!!

Tomorrow, Friday September 30th is our first Final Friday Fun Day of the 2016-17 school year.

Final Friday Fun Day‘s are an opportunity to turn off, settle in, relax and take a load off.  The Library goes tech free for the lunchhour…  no computers, no printing, no personal devices.

This week, for our first Friday, we’re going to have a good old fashioned “Rainy Day Games Day”…  (how appropriate for what promises to be a rainy day!).

The Library has a collection of games including cribbage, chess, backgammon, Jenga, Yahtzee, Sorry!, and more.  Or you can bring your own games.

Whatever you do, bring your lunch and come join the fun.

IEP Consultation Letters

Every year, a letter requesting input into the Individual Education Plan (IEP) is given to students with IEP’s.  Special education teachers are currently developing the IEP’s for this school year, and this input is part of the process.  Your child should have received their letter,  but if they do not have it, please have them go to room 210 to pick up another copy.  Please spend some time filling in the form together – we encourage students to be involved.  If your there are no changes from last year, there is a place to indicate this on the form.  In order to accommodate our tight timelines, we ask that you return the form by Monday October 3, 2016, as per the instructions on the letter.  Thank you!
