    Dear Parent(s) and/or Guardian(s),
    We had quite a successful beginning to this school year and teaching and learning in every classroom is well underway.  Our children, parents and staff have demonstrated character, courage and willingness during these first ten days of school.   It's hard to imagine that we are beginning our third week  By this time, students should have success with a daily routine.  Please also remember to have your child(ren) reflect with you on what they learned each night.   Our students are also looking sharp in their TWE school colors!
    By reading our Eagle's Heads Up emails and checking our website periodically, information placed within the First Day Communication Folder, the Parent Handbook and Calendar, Student Planner, and paying attention to our parent/guardian emails via Parent Link, you will help ensure your child(ren)'s success.  We count on you to get involved.  Additional opportunities will occur throughout this week;  
    Thursday, September 1 - Volunteer Orientation (9:00 a.m.). All adult volunteers are asked to complete a new application for the upcoming school year at browardschools.com/volunteerapplication and our first School Advisory Council (SAC) meeting (2:30 p.m.). SAC includes representatives of the school's staff, parents and community members and meetings usually take place once a month.  This group works collaboratively to develop plans for continual school improvement.  If you are interested in being a voting member of our School Advisory Council and plan to attend this meeting, please email Mrs. Romero at veronica.romero@browardschools.com.  
    Friday, September 2 - Coffee and Comprehension -  Parents are invited for a cup of coffee and learning!  (Topic: B.E.S.T. Standards overview with our school's literacy coach, Mrs. Crowther). 

    If you haven't yet returned your Back-to-School Forms, then you may still do so no later than tomorrow. It's also If using the online portal, this can be completed in the language of choice at https://scaweb.browardschools.com/bts/ and simply turn in the one-page Submission Sheet to your child(ren)'s teacher(s).  

    Please help us get students to class on time, as every minute is important.  You can help with a smooth arrival if students are ready to exit your car in the morning using the passenger side door.  Also drive forward to maximize the drop off area.  All children are expected to be on time and ready to think each day (tardy at 8:00 a.m. bell).  Instruction begins at 8:01 a.m.  Unfortunately, students that are dropped off after 8:00 a.m. need to enter through the Single Point of Entry accompanied by an adult, to receive a late pass.  We would like to minimize the amount of classroom interruptions.  Please make sure your child has all their belongings (backpack, lunchbox, water, homework, raincoat) when they are dropped off in the morning.   

    Breakfast is free and served from 7:30 – 7:50 a.m.  Food and Nutrition Services offer variety and well-balanced nutritious meals.  Students may choose the school lunch or bring their own.  The cafeteria does not allow cans or glass bottles or commercially prepared foods.  Please complete a meal benefits application (available in Haitian Creole, Portuguese and Spanish) at https://www.browardschools.com/free-lunch (copy and paste into browser)  

    Parents, please report your child's absence daily by calling the school at 754-322-8702.  If your child has an unexcused absence for that day Automated Attendance calls your home between 5:30 and 9:00 p.m.  

    Students celebrating August and September birthdays will be honored this Friday, September 2, at our Birthday Table.  Students will receive cupcakes courtesy of our PTA.  Each month during lunch, we honor student birthdays in lieu of classroom celebrations.
