Principal's Message for 10/2/17

posted Oct 1, 2017, 5:17 PM by 311 Ees

Some announcements for the week of October 2: 

First, please look for grade level newsletters for October either electronically or in your child's backpack on Monday. Please also check their backpacks for mid-quarter progress notes. These are intended to give you a brief snapshot of your child's progress. As always, if you have questions, please contact the classroom teacher directly.

Second, Monday is the start of our PTA's Fund it FAST campaign. As in years past, we hope that this will be our one and only fund raiser for the PTA for the year. If we meet our goal of $25,000, we will celebrate onFriday, October 27 from 6-8 PM with food trucks and bounce houses. The bounce houses will be free and vouchers will be available from our social worker for anyone who needs one for the food trucks. I am confident that Ephesus can reach its fund raising goal for the fifth year in a row!

Third, Wednesday is International Walk to School Day. I encourage you to walk here if possible and if not, you can take a lap around the building when you arrive. Then please join us from 7:25-7:45 for our awesome dance party on the k-2 blacktop. This is always a fun event and I look forward to seeing our roadrunners start their day in a healthy way on Wednesday.

Fourth, the PTA has a meeting this Thursday, October 5 from 5:30-7:30 PM. In addition to information about the fall fund raiser and the Reflections Art Contest, Marne Meredith will share information about restorative practices. Dinner and childcare will be provided and I hope to see you there.

Finally, our character trait for the month of October is respect. If you are interested, here is an article about teaching the concept to children. Enjoy!

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.  Please follow Ephesus Road Elementary on Facebook and @EphesusElem on Twitter. Please also check out our volunteer opportunities. I hope you have a great week!
