Parent Letter

Dear Parents,


Well I guess today we’ll have a Friday Folder.  I was not in the classroom yesterday.  Emma and I were not feeling well.  Yesterday we were supposed to finish the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) so we did finish it after gym today.  A few students need to make up parts of the test due to absence or tardiness.  Mrs. Cook, Title 1 assistant will work with those students next week.   You should receive your child’s results before summer vacation.


We have a new student, Jacob Paterson.  Jacob has transferred from Jefferson Elementary in Manistee.  He has a sister, Alexis in Mrs. Bromley’s room and a younger sister, Kaylin.  She is not in school yet.  We are very excited to have another Jacob in our classroom.  Now we have Jacob M. and Jacob P.  I would like to welcome Jacob and his family to our school.  Our classroom has 21 students now.


We need a parent volunteer in our classroom to assist with our Spring Sing rehearsal and program.  Our rehearsal is May 1st at 12:30 – 1:00 p.m. and the program is at 7:00 p.m.  If you are interested in volunteering, then please let me know.


During the month of April, our class is collecting non-perishable items for the local food pantry.  All of the food collected is distributed to families in our area.  Please send in your contributions throughout the month.
