At the January 20th Board of Education meeting, Suzann Cornell, our building principal shared the month by month list of activities and events that our school has provided, as well as, what we hope to accomplish by the end of the year.
Mrs. Cornell along with a PBIS committee of faculty and staff meet biweekly to discuss and plan for future events. This committee’s only focus is to provide positive school experiences and support for our students. Their work is to be commended.
Our very dedicated PTA is also heavily involved in the creation and support of this list from providing funds to organizing their own ideas and events. Our school board members are very supportive of this work and are working closely with administration as we begin to pivot away from this covid lockdown which we have been in for 2 years. Their focus is on creating a very near future where we open our minds (and doors) to inclusive family activities while still remaining safe.
This combined effort between our BOE, district employees and the PTA is crucial in ensuring the social and emotional well beings of our children are being met. We wanted to provide you with a copy of the calendar of events so that you can see we are working hard to pivot from Covid.
We are welcoming any and all feedback from our families that may have additional ideas and/or any concerns. Our district values open communication and transparency and would love everyone to have a voice. Unfortunately, with all things going on, parents have been distanced from the school and we apologize for that as it was certainly not our intention.
On Tuesday, January 25th, we would like to hold (3) one-hour GD Town Hall Meetings in our gymnasium to discuss anything and everything on your mind. We were thinking that if we had grade band meetings it may help to focus the discussions.
The meetings will be held at the following times:
- Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade Families- 5pm to 6pm
- 3rd, 4th, 5th Grade Families- 6pm to 7pm
- 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Families- 7pm to 8pm
Please send an email or call Heidi Hallock to RSVP just so we can get a rough count for chairs and refreshments. Hhallock@wynantskillufsd.org or (518) 283-4600 ex. 250
Thank you and we hope to see you next week!
