On the first Friday morning of every month, Ms. Scheidt meets with anyone who wants to chat. The discussion is driven by parents and guardians. During February’s Principal’s Coffee we will be reviewing our Title One Funding, Home School Compact and District’s Parent Involvement Policy. This is important and useful information for all parents. And of course there will also be ample time for chatting with Ms. Scheidt. The meetings are always in our library where you will find an assortment of pastries and hot coffee or tea. Sometimes a school board member also shows!
Join us for dinner and an information meeting on enrolling 8th graders at Burlington High School. This is a great chance for parent/guardians to get their questions answered. Childcare will be
provided. This meeting is for parent/guardians not students, but the whole family is welcome for dinner. We will have a chance for students to visit the high school in the spring.
There will be no school on January 15 for Martin Luther King Jr Day. School will also be closed to students at Hunt, Flynn or Smith on January 18th, as it is an inservice day for staff.
UPDATE: The Ghost Out part of the day has been postponed. The assembly and activity will go on as planned.
Be Above is sponsoring Ghost Out Day on Thursday, December 14. The morning will begin with an all-school assembly from 8:15.-9:00. The speaker is Linda Dutil, who is a ER nurse from Maine who speaks to the impact of alcohol and drug use. After the assembly students will report to their MOD 2 classes for an activity.
We expect all students will want to have a chance to talk about what is happening on this day. We will send reflection questions and statistics that may be helpful to teachers.
On Thursday, Guidance will also available to support students who may have difficulty with the topic due to losses.
POSTPONED: In addition, some 7th and 8th grade students will leave the classroom and put on a white mask Throughout the day (every 50 minutes) to symbolize how many people are killed every day in the United States by drunk driving. The students are asked to be silent once they become a ghost. Students are told that they can take notes in class if appropriate.
