Happy New Year! We enjoyed a terrific start to 2023 and look forward to welcoming Explorers back for a full week of learning tomorrow. I am especially proud of the way Explorers showed cr aftsmanship in meeting expectations in the classroom, hallways, cafeteria and other spaces. As a reminder, Explorers are marked tardy after 7:45 AM. Daily, on-time attendance is an important part of your Explorer’s academic success!
Don’t forget! Our FAC has their monthly meeting this Thursday, January 12th with a special guest and “Wait Until 8th” presentation. We highly encourage families to attend! Food is served at 5:30 PM and the presentation begins at 6:00 PM in the cafeteria. Please read the flier for more information.
We also invite you to join us for our first Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration on Friday, January 13th. In addition to the community event after school (3:30-5:30 PM in the gym), we will have in-school celebrations during Morning Program and Family Meeting. Please read the flier for more information and contact Ms. Knight with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
