Welcome back from winter break! We have our first week back in the books and back into our daily routines. The month of January is a busy one so I will highlight some of our key happenings this winter.
* After school activities continue:
This year we were fortunate to be able to expand our after school activity offerings to all of the following so our students are staying active. We have 8 after school clubs including Chess, Environmental, Performing Arts, Intramurals, Technology, Art, Aacademic Bowl, and Student Council. We also have our academic Read 180 programs, Homework help, and STEM.
* Parent-Teacher conferences:
This year we moved to scheduling the conferences through the online parent portal and that new process appears to be going well. We have afternoon conferences on January 20 and 26 and evening conferences January 21 and 27. The PTO Book fair is also happening during the conference days and evenings.
* Winter STAR assessment administration:
Students will be taking the second of three STAR assessments to help track their Reading and Math growth throughout this year. The winter administration is between January 11-25.
* Our Grade 4 and 5 spelling bees also happen this month with the Grade 4 spelling bee Friday ,January 22 at 9:15 and Grade 5 Monday, January 25 at 9:15.
In February we then look forward to the start of marking period 3 on February 3rd and our PTO sponsored Valentine's Dance on Friday, February 5th.
This is sure to be a busy but enjoyable winter here at Lloyd Road.
