As your child enters school this year please join us in our commitment to place reading first in your home routines. Of all the activities you can do with your child, few will be as important as time spent reading and sharing books with him or her. Reading books aloud together is one of the best ways to give children the skills and desire to learn to rad. This time together will build a strong foundation for reading, awaken your child’s imagination, increase vocabulary and attention span and create a special bond between you and your child.
We thank you in advance for also taking the time each day to talk with your child about their school experiences. We know they’ll have lots to share. Please ask questions about material you see coming home, special projects and homework assignments. When you are interested in your child’s progress at school your child’s interest in their own progress will follow. Your interest in your child’s educational progress will motivate your child to want to lean and do his/her very best at school.
You will find that our office's are always open to parents, students and staff. Usually there is no need for an appointment, but you may want to call ahead should we be away from the office spending time in the classrooms. We encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns or just to drop in to say hello. We look forward to getting to know you. Rest assure we will work our very hardest everyday to ensure that every child is safe, happy and able to do their very best. Please feel free to ask for a hand if you need anything or lend a hand if you can because, “Hand in Hand, We All Learn Together.”
At Bayview Elementary, you should be congratulated for all of your efforts in assisting our school to achieve high levels of student achievement. As we endeavor into this school year, I’d like to provide a few reminders so that we can make this year as successful as possible:
* * Parent participation is welcome and encouraged. However, if you wish to visit your child’s class during the day, please provide 24 hours notice so that we do not have an excessive number of disruptions.
* Get involved! There are many opportunities for volunteering at school. Please contact the front office if you are interested.
