Sunday Shout-Out – Week of November 13, 2016: Good afternoon Northeast Family and Friends. Here is our Northeast “Shout Out” for the week of November 13th. Now that report cards have gone home I believe that many of our students have begun to plan how they can be even more successful in school. We know our teachers have been working with our children to set up goals and strategies to help children learn at the highest level. We sent an information letter with report cards explaining our upcoming Student Led Conferences and how this process guides students and their learning in the direction we are trying to have them achieve. Please be sure to sign up with your team of teachers for our conferences that will be held on the evening of Monday November 21st and the afternoon of Tuesday November 22nd. Please note that our Student Led Conference process does not preclude you from scheduling an individual team meeting with your child’s teachers, but it is just not the process we use during our scheduled conference time. To schedule a team meeting, please reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher or your child’s Team Leader to do so.
As we move into this week before Thanksgiving our teachers are busy working on our second quarter goals with our children. We try very hard to get as much instruction in before break, because we recognize the distractions our children face with the holidays and how much we struggle to keep children focused on their learning. Please help your children stay focused on their school responsibilities and help them balance the joys of the holiday season with the expectations from their classes.
Upcoming events this week for our students include our monthly celebration of student success with our Hornet Brunch on Tuesday and our 6th graders will enjoy a day at Lehigh University for Lehigh Education Day on Wednesday. Their trip includes a Lehigh women’s basketball game at Stabler Arena. Our Northeast Parent/Teacher Organization also has a busy week sponsoring an “Eats Out” night on Tuesday at Kentucky Fried Chicken. The monthly NEPTO meeting is this Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in our school cafeteria. Immediately after our monthly meeting, we also have our monthly Band Parent meeting in our band room. This meeting starts promptly at 7:00 p.m., and we are sure will be busy as we continue to plan our holiday concert season.
Finally on Friday we end our week with our monthly school dance. Be sure to have your child bring a canned good donation to the dance to receive a discount and to help feed some of our less fortunate neighbors during this time of Thanksgiving.
Have a great remainder to your weekend!
