A tremendous THANK YOU to Ms. Vecchioni and the STEAM committee for making our first annual Cardboard Challenge a success! It was a huge hit and it was wonderful to see so many children and parents engaged in creating authentic, creative and interactive pieces of art. Thank you for bringing your children to this event, I am not sure about you but it certainly brought back found childhood memories.
I have included a letter to families regarding the potential strike. Please know as information is shared, I will forward it on to you. There are many community organizations coming together to provide families a safe environment for your children in the event there is a strike. Learn more.
At Waters, safety for our students and staff are of the utmost importance. This week, staff and students will practice different emergency drills. I have asked my staff to speak to the students about the importance of these drills which may include a bus evacuation, fire, shelter in place and a lock down drill. If your child speaks to you about the drills this week, please emphasize the importance of listening and following directions. Please know that these are mandatory drills and we practice them each year.
This week Progress Reports - a mid quarter "check up" with how your child is performing in his/her classes - will be sent home. This is not their end of the quarter grade. When you do receive the notice, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher.
Thank you for sharing your children with us and have a great week!
