March 2019 Newsletter

Parent/Teacher Conferences

Parents, since the Parent/Teacher conferences scheduled for March 4th did not occur due to a snow day. Please contact your child’s teacher to set up a time to meet to discuss your child’s progress, if interested.

Why attendance matters

Successful schools begin by engaging students and making sure they come to school regularly. That may seem obvious. What’s less obvious is that the consequences of low attendance are serious for all children and for the community, not just the students who miss school.

The attendance rate is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It’s difficult for the teacher and the class to build their skills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis are more likely to have behavior problems.

School Age Child Care Services provided by the YMCA

The child care program provides a safe, structured environment for Kindergarten through 5th grade with plenty of activities to keep your child busy and focused. Some of the activities your child will experience while enrolled in the program are:

Homework help, Crafts, Games, Gym or Outdoor Activities, Nutritious Snack/healthy living

This is offered Monday- Friday 6am – School Start & School Dismissal – 6pm with full day care available on scheduled school closings, delays, early dismissals and inclement weather closings.
