Principal's February 2016 Newsletter
February 15, 2016
Dear Main Street School Families,
The month of February has brought several enjoyable celebrations at MSS including the recognition of the 100th day of school and Valentine’s Day. We have also enjoyed participating in the Jump Rope for Heart program. I wish you all a wonderful February break next week.
Kindergarten Orientation and Registration for the 2016-2017 School Year- This Thursday, February 18th, we will be having an information and registration night for the parents of children who will be turning five by September 30th and entering Kindergarten in 2016-2017. Starting at 6:00 pm parents will have a chance to visit kindergarten classrooms and then there will be a presentation in the gym that starts at 6:30 pm. In the event of inclement weather we will have this orientation and registration evening on March 3rd. Registration packets may be picked up now at Main Street School or picked up on the evening of February 18th. We look forward to greeting the parents of next year’s Kindergarten class.
Snow Gear: The arrival of snow has increased our recess options. When the conditions permit we use both the blacktop area and the lower playing field for recess. Students who bring proper snow gear that includes snow pants, boots, a jacket, a hat, and gloves are allowed to play on the snowy field and build snow structures or snow people. Students who don’t have snow gear or prefer not to play in the snow have a variety of activities they can select to play on the black top area. Some of the options children enjoy include tag, jump roping, wall ball, using the foot print path, or playing in the sandbox with the trucks. Please know that we expect that students will come to school dressed warmly and be prepared to play on the playground during recess on days that are eighteen degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.
Lost and Found- The plastic bin in the gym that serves as our lost and found will have its contents displayed this week during lunch. We hope to be able to return the many collected items to their original owners.
