Dear Curvin-McCabe Families,
November is here, the leaves are changing colors, the temperature is getting cooler, and everyone is getting ready for the holiday season.
Teaching and learning are in full swing. Students in grades K-2 are thriving in their reading. In September, there were 31 students in the Read to Me Group, that number has dropped to 5. Students are excited about reading, and I love seeing all of the pictures of students reading at home. Please keep up this great work, the best thing families can do together is read at home.
Reading has been a huge focus, but I do not want to forget about mathematics. Please practice math facts with your child. 5-10 minutes of drilling facts using flashcards is all it will take to have students master this important skill. It is expected that by the end of 3rd grade students will have mastered their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. Please help us, and your child accomplish this skill.
The morning drop off has been a struggle. On Kenyon Ave. the city has designated a drop off area. A couple of reminders when using the drop off lane:
1. Please pull all the way to the end of the lane
2. Please stay in line
3. Have your child exit the vehicle from the right hand side (door closest to the sidewalk)
4. Then pull away, staying in the line, please do not park your vehicle
This lane is intended to be a drop off spot, if you need to speak with an adult, please park your vehicle on Cottage Street and come into the school. Also, please do not double park, or drop students off outside of the drop off lane. I don not want to see a child get hurt. Also, please utilize the crossing areas on Cottage St. Please do not drop your child off on Kenyon Ave, and have them cross the street in front of the drop off area. Again, I do not want anyone to get hurt. I thank you in advance for your cooperation on this matter.
