Our annual Back to School Night event for parents will occur during the week of September 20th, more information will follow. This will be an important event for Parents, affording the opportunity to meet teachers, learn about our school programs, and how parents can work with the school to help their child have a successful school-year.
An important reminder for our students in Grades 3-6 to complete and return the Language Arts and Mathematics Summer Packets to their homeroom teacher upon returning to school. Students recieve extra credit for completing and returning these work packets. Language Arts Packets are provided for Grades 3-6. Mathematics Summer Packets are provided for Grades 4-6. There is still time to download and complete the packets from the Gavlak School Website under the "For Families" section if you have not done so already.
I encourage all families to get involved with our Elementary P.T.A Organization for the up-coming school year. Participation in the P.T.A. gives parents the opportunity to come out, meet other parents and to get involved by helping to plan and develop interesting programs for students in the elementary schools. Membership Forms will be available in September. I am looking forward to seeing all of our children and parents, as we work together as partners in providing an outstanding educational program for our students.
As always, if anyone has any questions, feel free to call my office or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also contact the School Counselor; Mrs. Radan, who is available for any parent who may have questions. Mrs. Radan's email is email@example.com
