I hope everyone found several good books to read during Midwinter break! Our goal is to have every scholar reading on grade level by the end of the year. Students should read at home at their independent reading level every day!
Ask your child about their reading level and reading goals; if they can’t answer clearly, ask your child’s teacher for more information. It’s a big year for the Seattle Seahawks (Go Hawks)! Every single member of the Seahawks had to be a strong enough reader to go to college!
The beginning of March is always school budget time in Seattle Public Schools. School will receive their initial budget/staffing allocations at the beginning of March and have two weeks to discuss any proposals or modifications. Please join me at the PTA meeting on March 13, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm to learn about and discuss Highland Park’s budget.
It looks like Highland Park met our first semester attendance goal! Let’s keep it up – we want every student on time and ready to learn every day. Students should be at Highland Park by 8:35 am or by 8:20 am if they are eating breakfast. The school bell rings at 8:40 am. A staff member is assigned to remain on the playground until the classrooms are in.
