With the change in the weather, we are seeing some overall changes in the students. Behavior is a little looser, homework is being missed and overall students appear to be ready for a summer vacation. The YDMA community members and I have talked with students reminding them that we are looking for their best behavior in the classrooms, playground, bus, and all areas of their school day. We expect all students so behave in a respectful and safe manner, while staying focused on learning. We are proud of them and their accomplishments and encourage students to finish their school year doing their best!
I want to give a huge thank you to those parents/caregivers who completed the School Survey. The responses from this survey are used to establish priorities for the school, such as how we can improve communication to parents/caregivers, enrich the existing curriculum and ensuring that the learning environments are inclusive for all students.
A reminder that the standardized Math test will be administered on Wednesday May 1st and Thursday, May 2nd. Please make sure that your child gets plenty of rest and has a healthy breakfast on those days.
I am looking forward to seeing everyone during our last Parent-Teacher night on May 15th from 4:30pm-7:30pm. This is a time to check in with your child's teacher about their progress.
I also want to encourage all of you to begin purchasing tickets for the school carnival, that is being held on May 18th from 10am-4:00pm. I hope to see you all there!
