Our next Parents as Learning Partner event is scheduled for Friday November 22, 2019. Atlas/DIY will be hosting a “Know Your Rights” workshop following the Parents as Learning Partners event. Participants will learn about their rights regardless of immigration status and be introduced to some valuable community resources. The workshop will be held in the auditorium. We hope to see you there.
Once again, thank you to all our kindergarten and third grade parents for adapting so well to the recent changes in dismissal. ** It is important that all Pre-k and Kindergarten parents wear their badges around their necks on the outside of their coats/jackets when entering the building at 2:55pm. As a security precaution, our school safety officer must be able to see all badges easily.
Reminder: Mrs. Hendrickson will be hosting another tour for prospective pre-k and kindergarten students on November 19th at 9:00 am.
GYMNASIUM UPDATE: Construction to update the fencing along the 30thstreet side of our playground is set to begin on November 19th and last through the 25th. After that, a construction trailer will be installed in the school yard. The current play yard surface will be removed beginning on November 26th and excavation for our new gymnasium is set to begin early in December. The playground will still be available to students but the play yard will be closed. Our new “recess plans” will be shared with families in the next two weeks. We are hopeful that this project will be completed at the end of next year. As always, I will keep you posted on any updates or changes to this timeline.
