Thanks to everyone for their efforts to sustain all the positive energy from our opening days of school... well done! It's hard to believe our first month of school is behind us and we are well into October. Please check our website and newsletter-school calendar for updates on coming events so you can plan ahead in your schedules. My personal favorite is parent conferences - coming October 21, 22, and 23. These are a great opportunity for you to connect with your child's teacher(s) and get an update on their progress to date. Equally as important is setting goals for the students and working together to support their learning. My staff is very talented and will be able to suggest ways to help all of our students succeed. Don't forget to visit the book fair during conferences to add a few new titles to your family collection as you read at home with your kids.
Another October hit is our annual "Boo-Bash" coming on Friday, October 24th. Thanks to our PTA and Grade 5 Night Committee for putting on this fun event. If you are not yet a member of the PTA, please stop by the main office for a registration form or simply come to our next meeting. We would love to have more members of the South Side community involved - and always appreciate hearing from new members.
School Climate Survey
(*see the big blue button above!)
Please take a moment to click on the link and take our school climate survey. It will take only minutes to complete, but the information we get from these surveys will help guide our improvement efforts at South Side. All staff, students, and parents can participate and I look forward to hearing how we can make South Side an even better place for teaching and learning.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at conferences! Here's to another great month at South Side School!
