Principal's Message


Dawn WoodFebruary/March 2020 Message
With the second trimester well underway, we want to thank everyone for your continued support of our students, staff, and school as we strive to provide opportunities for learning each and every day. I’m excited to share with you some of the upcoming events taking place at school over the next few months.

• February 11: Grades 3-6 Computer Based Testing Simulation—Our students will participate in a statewide practice session for our approaching New York State ELA and Math tests. This helps to prepare our students to be successful and confident when the testing time arrives.

• 
February 24-March 19: Too Good For Drugs Grades K-6—This program teaches our students to be responsible and make good life choices.

• 
March 2-April 5 (Mondays): The Washington County Steam Academy—This is an enrichment opportunity for students in grades 4-8. Information went home in your child’s backpack. There is a cost to participate.

• 
March 2: Elementary students will be dismissed at 11:30. Our teachers will be participating in a day of learning. They will be working in teams to develop and align our curriculum with the Next Gen Standards and Benchmarks for New York State.

• 
Summer 2020: We are excited about the addition of SCOTS camp. More information to follow. Be sure to fill out the parent surveys that were sent home. We look forward to hearing your ideas!

Remember: School success goes hand in hand with good attendance. We want your children and all our students to succeed. And that means attending school every day possible. We miss them when they are not here.

 

Sincerely, 

Dawn Wood, Argyle Elementary School Principal
