We are moving closer to that exciting time of the year where we get to share the progress your student has made during parent conference week. Please come in and schedule a conference with the office staff if you have not already set one up using the On-Line Scheduler on the Antelope Creek web page (password: falcon). It is crucial that we all partner together to see how we can help your child grow. We highly encourage at least one family member to attend a conference with teachers.
I also wanted to ask for your assistance with getting students to school on-time and with picking them up on-time. We have had a high volume of tardies lately and this can impact the start of the day for all children. When a student walks into a classroom late the teacher has to stop instruction to get the child caught up and settled in with the rest of the group. This takes valuable learning time away from the whole class. When students are not picked up on time they end up waiting in the office and office staff has a hard time fulfilling their regular responsibilities and monitoring the high volume of students waiting in the office. Please let us know if you need any support with school schedules and routines as we would be happy to help provide information. All of the updated schedules are also posted on the Antelope Creek web page for your reference.
Finally, I am very thankful to be a part of this school community and I hope you all have a thankful and restful Thanksgiving with family and friends.
