Principal's Message

Dawn Wood
Fall Message

We are happy to have our hallways filled with your children. It has been a successful start to the school year. Everyone has been excited and eager to learn. It was so nice to see so many of you at our annual Open House on October 3rd. Thank you to all the families that attended. We value our family partnerships. Below are some highlights and reminders that will help us stay connected.

 We are a Bucket Filling Family: Everyday in our classrooms we encourage our students to be kind to one another. We talk about what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like. Students are recognized in many ways for following our core values and being an Argyle Scot. One of our goals is to pledge to be kind. Our teachers and staff teach these concepts in our classrooms and we recognize students in various ways. You can help at home by celebrating your child’s pledge to be kind by acknowledging the bucket filling slips they bring home on Friday afternoons. We would love to have you send in a selfie of you and your child celebrating being kind!

 Building the habit of Good Attendance: School success goes hand in hand with good attendance! Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves. There are many ways you can help at home. Be on the lookout for information coming in your child’s backpack.

 Don’t forget to Read: Try to read with your child everyday. Aiming for 10-15 minutes each day will help your child improve their memory, vocabulary, and knowledge. Asking your child questions about their reading is also helpful in building comprehension skills. Many of our teachers have reading incentives integrated into their ELA curriculum. They would be happy to discuss activities you can do at home that promote reading success.

 Upcoming Events: Our Annual Halloween Parade will be held on October 31st at 10am. We look forward to seeing you at our Parent Teacher Conferences in November. We are also planning a family art night in late November. More information coming soon!
