Message from Mr. Ferguson
Tonight you will receive information about a fundraiser happening this week. It’s a super easy earner for the school. Thank you in advance for your support.
In your scholar’s folder tonight is an important survey that I made for you. I would like your input on how our communication is doing. Please complete this survey and return it with your child tomorrow.
Wednesday will be our monthly Site Based Team meeting. If you are a parent representative or you would like to serve on this year’s Site Based Team please feel free to attend. The meeting will be a “work session” in the media center from 2:30-4:00. The Site Based team is made up of school staff and parents and we focus on making good decisions to help the school meet its goals.
Next Friday, September 27th is a PTO Spirit Day. Wear your favorite sports team colors or swag.
Tuesday, September 24th is PTO Spirit Night at Pizza Hut in Wingate from 5:00-8:00. You can dine in or take out to support your PTO.
Today we celebrated merging some classrooms due to a vacancy. Many parents made donations for the ice cream party. Thank you 3rd and 4th grade parents for supporting our “Merge Party” today. The leftovers will be used in future celebrations. Thank you PTO and teachers for making this celebration happen and a positive experience.
The school curriculum night was originally scheduled for September. The major topic of this year’s curriculum night will be training parents on the new reading assessments’ parent portal and how to read the student data. We are currently learning about the portal and need a little bit more time to prepare this for you. This is a new system to North Carolina. The new tentative date for our curriculum night is October 10th from 6-7:00 PM.
Thank you and have a great evening.
