Attendance Recovery Program-Saturday School

Hello Foster Road,

I am proud to announce that we will be having an Attendance Recovery Program available to recoup student absences. This will be done by attending Saturday School. For every day that they attend on a scheduled Saturday School session, one of their absences will be recoded to signify that it is made up. So if your child has missed any days, we highly recommend that they attend Saturday School.

The dates are as follows (any changes to this schedule will result in notification)

September 30, 2023
October 14, 2023
October 28, 2023
November 4, 2023
December 9, 2023
December 16, 2023
January 20, 2024
January 27, 2024
February 3, 2024
March 2, 2024
March 16, 2024

Schedule for Saturday session will be from 8:00-12:15. A mid morning snack will be provided, but you are free to send your child with a snack.

We highly encourage all students with absences to take advantage of this opportunity. There is much benefit from participating. For example, if your child currently has 3 absences so far this year, and they attend 3 of the Saturday sessions, they will qualify for the perfect attendance medal at the end of the year, if they don't miss any additional days. Keep in mind you cannot recoup a later absence for attending a Saturday session. For example if you have 0 absences and attend January 20, then are absent on February, you can not recoup that absence unless you attend one of the later sessions.

If you have any questions about our Saturday Attendance Recoupment Program, please give our office a call.

Thank you.

Parent Teacher Conference Week

Hello Foster Road,

Hello Foster Road, we are preparing for Parent-Teacher-Student conferences next week. To conduct conferences, all next week will be minimum day schedule. All students will be dismissed at 1:00 pm. Conferences will be held right after dismissal until 3:00 pm. For those that are unable to make it right after school, we have Thursday evening conference times scheduled from 5:00-7:00pm.

Please be on the lookout for the conference schedule sheet that teachers are sending out. If you have not seen it, please communicate with your teachers to sign up for a time to conduct your conference.

Although we prefer to meet in person, do keep in mind that your child's conference can also be held by phone or through zoom.

Ultimately we would like to strive for 100% progress conferences to be held next week.

All students will receive a progress report and their initial IReady assessment in math and reading (If not finished-their report will be sent at a later time).

PTA will be hosting Scholastic Book fair during conference times. So please stop by the MPR to pick up some great reading material. Proceeds will go towards providing teachers with additional books for the classroom.
