It’s hard to imagine that we are discussing upcoming events for November. Where have the past three months gone? Enrollment is slightly down from last year; however, student learning is still going well at Moran. One thing we are very pleased about is our parent volunteers. We so appreciate the time and energy our parent volunteers are giving to help our students. I can only tell you that hundreds of hours have already been given. If you haven’t volunteered yourself please consider it. Volunteering is a nice way to serve our students and community. Below I have listed several topics of information for your review. Hopefully these will help you keep informed about important school topics.
Playgrounds: We ask that parent/guardians not visit our playgrounds during recess time or when school is in session. This policy is for your child’s safety and security as well as those of other parents.
Focused Instruction: Are you curious about what skill your child is working on and if they have mastered it or not? Teachers in grades K-4 are sending this information home. If you’re not seeing your child’s information coming home contact their teacher. FI skills are those state mandated skills we want all students to know and be able to perform.
Picking Up/Dropping off Your Child: Only bused students should use the front drop off area of our school. Students in cars, vans or trucks should be dropped off and picked up at the south entrance or exit. Please do not drop off students prior to 8:25 a.m. Help keep our students safe. Your cooperation is appreciated.
Parent/Teacher Conferences: We appreciated your attendance during our two evenings of parent/teacher conferences. Working together, in partnership, we can help your child reach their learning potential. We hope you found your conference helpful.
Picture Retakes: Retakes were completed on Wednesday, October 12.
Daylight Savings Time: November 6, at 2:00 a.m., marks the end of daylight savings time. Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour.
D.A.R.E. Graduation: Tuesday, December 13 is D.A.R.E. graduation for 5th graders. Graduation starts at 11:30 a.m. in the IMR. Seating is limited.
Don’t forget to come visit us. We’d love to have you visit or volunteer. Please remember only approved volunteers may participate. If you have not been approved please stop by our office and pick up the forms you need in order to serve. Moran Elementary School is dedicated to serving its students and families. Please do not hesitate to call or stop by if we can be of service.
