Working Together to Make a Difference!!
|December 9, 2013|
Hello Brayton students, parents, guardians, and families!
Only two more weeks left until the winter holiday vacation. Progress reports for the second quarter will be distributed to students in Grades 3-7 on Monday, December 9.
The Brayton PTA will hold their monthly meeting on Monday, December 9 @ 6 p.m. in the school library. Please plan to attend this meeting and get involved with the PTA. Our parents do a tremendous job with their fundraising activities that allow our children to attend many wonderful school events. I am thankful to our PTA for their efforts to support these valuable learning experiences.
The Grade 4 Teachers, Staff, and Students will be hosting the Holiday Gift Shop on December 11 and 12 at Brayton. Students will be able to purchase gifts that have been donated by the Brayton families and staff for this fundraiser at a cost of twenty-five cents for each item.
Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the season each school day. We will go outside for recess as long as the temperatures are above ten degrees and we want to make sure that all students have winter coats, warm pants, and boots so that they can enjoy recess time while remaining healthy.
Daily attendance in school is not only necessary in order to effectively educate the students, it is also required by law. State law allows a student to have six unexcused days absent in six months. Please make sure that you contact the main office (662-3260) by 9 a.m. if your child will be absent from school that day. If your child requires treatment from a doctor for their illness, please ask the doctor’s office to fax a note to our school nurse or bring a copy to school so that we can document those days absent for your child.
The student handbook for 2013-2014 has been updated and is now available on the school web site. Please take time to review the school rules with your child and contact me directly if you have any questions.
One of my goals at Brayton is to create a positive culture that allows everyone to feel welcome at our school. Please communicate any comments, questions, or concerns to me at the school so that we can work together to maintain a positive learning environment for all of our students.
Please assist our efforts with the students to reinforce the Brayton School expectations:
Everybody is included.
Always do your best.
Safe place for all.
