Last week, we featured and recognized our outstanding Debate team. This week's congratulations goes to our Trade, Wind and Fire performing group (along with their facilitators Ms. Larrieux and Mrs. Valbuena) as we hosted and welcomed special program coaches throughout our district. It's not uncommon that Tradewinds showcases the many innovating programs that are in place at our outstanding school. Second grade's service project, "Pennies for Puppies" raised nearly $1,500 and our entire learning community should be commended. We will kindly present Tri-County Animal Rescue with a check from our school!
Along with today's Eagle newsletter, the following communication is being sent home. Please check your child(ren)'s backpack(s) for a duplicate of two important beginning of the year on-line forms. In August, many parents were able to complete these required documents through Wizard, however, we are at that time of the year when photographing becomes more frequent through events and activities and even as the yearbook is prepared. Additionally (as a part of Policy 6000.1), our students will also participate in the Family Life and Human Sexuality grade level curriculum (typically in May). We are asking for all parents to complete (as an update) both and return to your child(ren)'s teacher(s) no later than Friday, February 28th. Portuguese, Spanish and Haitian-Creole versions are also available. Unreturned forms will be considered as consent to photographing and the health curriculum. In addition to updating these forms, all students received a Parent Guide and information regarding the Novel Coronovirus (2019-nCov). Please review.
Please join us next Tuesday, March 3rd (new date) for our Coffee and Comprehension parent learning at 8:30 a.m. The focus topic will be on School Board Policy 6000.1 Student Progression Plan. Knowing this policy may better prepare parents and families in understanding promotion criteria by grade level. We will also have both Portuguese and Spanish interpreters at the meeting.
