Fall is here already! We truly have had a great beginning to the school year. Students are acclimated to their teachers, our expectations, and the regular routines of the building. One area where I could use some help is securing some parent volunteers to cover recess duty on Fridays. This coverage gives grade level staff members the opportunity to meet weekly and examine student data. If you are interested, email Mrs. Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
Later this month, we will again have our Joanne Benton WEF Walk fundraiser. It will be on Wednesday October 31st at the West, with each grade walking laps around the building, recess yard, and parking lot for 20-30 minutes. The Boutwell students may also join us at some point, which is always extra fun for us. This is the WEF’s largest fundraiser of the year, and the monies are shared between each school, and the funding of various grants biggest school fundraiser of the year. The event was renamed this year in honor of our former superintendent, the late Joanne Benton. It was her favorite event of the year! Please be sure to ‘sponsor’ your child in this fun event!
