Principal's Message 11/10/1/9

Friday, December 13, 2019 - 11:19am

The teachers have been very busy these past few weeks with parent-teacher conferences and writing progress reports.  We finished our first trimester this past week and our first trimester progress reports will be available through Infinite Campus next Friday, Nov. 15, at 4pm.  I will email the steps to access the progress report online through Konstella at the end of next week as we do not send home paper copies unless requested.

 

This past week, our new Playworks Coach, Nikki Chiu, worked at Addison and taught every class games including XXX.  The Playworks program not only teaches new games but also cooperation, good sportsmanship, inclusiveness, and encouragement.  It was fun to see the kids outside with Nikki and the rest of their class building these important life skills.  Also, the 3rd-5th grade Junior Coaches were trained on Wednesday so we look forward to their continued leadership throughout the school.

 

We do not have school on Monday as we celebrate Veterans Day.  On Tuesday, we have our PTA General and Executive Meeting at 8:20am in the AKC portable.  Everyone is welcome to learn about our PTA and all the wonderful programs they provide.  One of the enrichment opportunities they support is our grade level field trips.  PTA pays for all the Kindergarten-3rd grade field trips so we ask for voluntary donations in 4th and 5th grades in order to pay for overnight field trips for those students.  We are currently collecting donations to make these 4th and 5th grade field trips possible this year so if you’re able to donate, please contact the front office.

 

Finally, I wanted to thank Jill Asher, Jen Matsuzawa and Danielle Pashalides for inviting our Noon Chorus to the Magical Bridge Playground yesterday for a performance!  Jill is one of the co-founders of the playground and Jen and Danielle are the fearless leaders that teach the students group and solo performances each Wednesday at lunch.  This was the first school performance held at the Magical Bridge Playground and the students did a great job.  Thanks to all the families for your ongoing support.
