Welcome back to school!
Thank you for a safe start to the school year! Our Title I Annual Meeting and Open House were well attended. We appreciate your support by attending, providing optional supplies to classrooms and being a partner in your child’s education.
We had our first PTA/SAC meeting and welcomed new board members and new members. Lots of great ideas for “modern” communication were discussed like Facebook.
PTA: Jorge Hodge (President), Michelle Grover (Treasurer), Jen Scott (Secretary-pending),
Kelly Rawl (Vice President- returning)
SAC: Rhonda Frush (Chairperson)
Check out the Northwest website for more information from PTA and SAC http://pcsb.org/northwest-es
Please welcome the following additions to the Northwest staff:
Elizabeth Johnson (K), Kathy DoVale (1st), Deb McCann (3rd), Sherrie Cousineau (School Counselor), Chris Wood (Social Worker)
Visitors: All adults must have a dated VISITOR sticker or a PCSB ID badge in order to enter our campus. This is to ensure your child’s safety.
Communication with your child’s teacher is vital. Title I has purchased agendas for all students, this is our #1 form of communication. Your child earns a point daily for having you initial it each evening. There are several other ways to communicate with your child’s teacher: e-mail or a phone call. If you wish to speak to them in person set up a time during their specials or before or after school. Please refrain from taking them away from instructional time. Every minute counts!!!
Attendance: We will be continuing to reward students monthly with Spirit Tags for perfect attendance: no tardies and no absences. We will also be recognizing the parents who get their students here daily with no absences or tardies. We will be conducting random drawings and awarding two families with Publix gift cards. We need our children here every day learning!
A few reminders………
Please take the following survey to help us improve:
If you need a paper copy, please request from your child’s teacher or stop in at the front office.
