East Broadway Elementary School: A Message From The Principal

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

"November is Education Month." November is a busy time for all of us.

On November 20 and November 23, parents will have an opportunity to meet with their child's teacher to discuss the first quarter progress report. If you have not scheduled your appointment, please contact your child's teacher for a day and time.

Please refer to the PTA calendar for specific times and dates of other events.

While school and work can get quite hectic at times, please take a few moments to be reflective. There are so many wonderful things that we should not take for granted. With Thanksgiving upon us, please remember to give our children that extra hug and kiss and tell them how much they mean to us. This helps to "Fill their Buckets." Use the long holiday weekend to meet with friends and family to share stories of your past. It is these kinds of conversations and gatherings that help our youngsters to bring experiences, knowledge, and memories to the classroom. The more opportunities children have to speak and listen, the more able they are to make connections when reading. These conversations also help students to develop "seeds" for writing and background knowledge for reading. Parent involvement comes in many forms. Sharing stories with your family is yet another way to "Make Every Minute Count."

My very best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving.

Respectfully yours,
Jeanmarie Wink
