Greetings Parents! Do you have a child who will be starting kindergarten this year? If so, have you heard about the Get On Track Kindergarten Readiness Camp? The dates are from July 29 through August 15, Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00-12:30. Paper registrations can be found at all schools, or you can go to the Chatham County Schools’ website and register online under Summer Learning Opportunities.
You should have received a paper with the dates of our summer PTA work nights. We still are in need of workers. Please consider volunteering. Your child can also work if they are 10 years of age or older. Call the front office if you are willing to help. This is our biggest fundraisers for our PTA. Thank you for your help.
We have been so impressed with how hard your kids have worked in 2018/19 and how much they have learned. We need them ready to take their learning to even higher levels next school year. To the extent possible, please give your child rich experiences this summer. Take them on hikes, visit parks and museums, go on a bike ride, talk to them about their futures, and most importantly, have them read, read, read (Dr. Savage will be kissing a pig next September if students read over the summer and complete their reading logs). Always remember, you are your children’s greatest teachers!
Have a wonderful summer!
Dr. Larry Savage
