Principal's Message

December/January MessageDawn Wood

These past few months we have experienced many successes! Our students and teachers have continued to put their best foot forward and have demonstrated their school spirit and dedication to work their hardest. We are proud of our accomplishments and continue to work toward our goals. Below are some of the highlights of things happening here at Argyle Elementary.

  Veterans Day Celebrations: Our Elementary students celebrated Veterans’ Day in a big way. Our 9th period chorus students visited the Washington Center and our entire elementary school took part in an assembly honoring our local veterans.

 Snow Plow Safety Workshop: On November 15th, the Washington County DPW steering team presented a program on snow plow safety.

 Parent Conferences and Report Cards: Thank you for attending our parent teacher conferences. It was great to see everyone engaged in conversations about student growth and learning. Our report cards went home on December 7th. Please let us know if you have any questions concerning your child’s progress.

  Proud to be a SCOT: We are continuing to build upon our core values of respect, responsibility, citizenship, and trustworthiness. Be on the lookout for our next TOP SCOT awards that will be presented at our awards assembly in January.

 Benchmark Assessments in ELA and Math: During the month of January, students in Grades K-6 will be taking STAR reading and math assessments to determine the amount of progress they’ve made since the beginning of the school year. Your child’s teacher will share those results with you as soon as they are compiled.

 New York State Testing: This year, our 3-8 students will participate in computer-based testing. These tests will take place in April and May. An informational parent meeting will be held in March.

 Donated Supplies/Lost and Found: Just a reminder to check our lost and found table by the Main Office. We also have donated school supplies if your child is in need of pencils or paper.

 Thank you to all the parents who helped during our Fall/Holiday holiday events. We appreciate your support and enjoy having you visit our classrooms.

Sincerely, 

Dawn Wood, Argyle Elementary School Principal
