From the Principal
The exciting moments continue at Cherry Brook! Today we celebrated our reading skills by participating in the national Read Across America Day. The school had visiting readers and we did a school wide “Drop Everything and Read”. We hope your child had another positive day!
Progress reports will be going home on Friday, March 10. As a reminder, you can access more information about progress reports by following this link. Please note that at the beginning of the year, we anticipated what units would be completed in math for this term. As we are learning the new math program, some units have taken longer than anticipated. Therefore, some standards may not be assessed at this time as originally planned in the parent guide.
We’re very excited to begin our second set of parent conferences next week. As a reminder, dismissal will be at 1 PM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (March 14 - March 16) for students in grades K - 3. Conferences are a great opportunity to discuss the progress your child has made so far and what your child can work towards with the remaining portion of the year. While I know it is easy to look ahead and start thinking about next school year, please try to focus your conversations on the last part of this year.
At the beginning of April, I will send you information regarding the placement process for next school year. We will continue to follow our same process including giving parents the opportunity for input in describing your child‘s learning style. I’m sure the positive growth of your children that are reported at the spring conference will be as warm and encouraging as the spring sunshine.
As always, thank you for sharing you children with us and let me know if you need anything.
