Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
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 "Live their Dash." Living your dash means living your life with purpose and doing what you can to be mindful of the world around you and doing for others. 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."
We are very excited about our new Levittown Literacy Initiative. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was the kick-off to the program. Please check out the website for future events.
I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
