From the Principal
First I would like to thank anyone who is a Veteran of our Armed Forces. Your selfless dedication to our country and our safety are very appreciated. Our students have spent time honing their writing skills by making thank you cards.
Please look at our Nanuet Community Bulletin that Kathleen Maier puts together for ongoing events in our community and the surrounding areas. As a reminder, we do not have school on Monday, November 11th. Thursday, November 14th and Tuesday, November 19th are early dismissal days for Parent/Teacher Conferences. If you do not have a scheduled meeting time, please email your child's teacher. We look forward to discussing your child's academic and social/emotional growth with you this month.
American Educators Week is coming up so please look for a flyer in your child's folder next week with an invitation. On Election Day, while your little ones slept in late, our teachers were engaged in great dialogue regarding the Next Generation Learning Standards and our curriculum maps.
Please remember to find a device-free time for your family so you can provide some undivided attention to your children by reading or playing board games or outside games. In order to enhance your reading time with them, you can ask wh-questions regarding the story elements: characters, setting, and plot. You can ask them to make predictions about what might happen next; this engages their higher order thinking skills. Our kindergarten students are practicing their trick words and learning to rhyme so any nursery rhyme books would be great to read!
The next PTA meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 12th here at George Miller at 7:30 pm. And PTA is hosting BINGO Knight on Friday, November 15th at Barr Middle School. See the flyer in the digital backpack.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
