Happy Thursday Truman Tribe:
Attendance: Yesterday many parents received an attendance report based on their students current %. I want you to know that our system generates that report automatically monthly and with the year of 2020 and the need to quarantine or stay home when having symptoms that attendance is not our priority or main focus this year. I have brought this to the attention of other administrators and we are working on getting this featured turned off this year so that you do not receive these automatic reports. Please note that there is nothing held against your student as far as attendance when it comes to our case by case situations that we are dealing with daily this year. Please continue to keep your families health a priority and open communication between home and school. It is greatly appreciated.
Free and Reduced Forms: You will find a Free and Reduced Lunch form in your students Thursday Folder. If you have already filled one out and turned it in to the office you do NOT have to fill one out again. If this is something that could benefit your family it is truly a WIN-WIN for you and our district. The state uses a formula and determines a % of federal funds that a school will receive based off the number of families using the free and reduced program option. Also, when filling out the form you are allowed to list EVERYONE living under your roof. A lot of times this is a qualifying factors that many don’t take advantage of! I hope you find this information helpful and consider your need in filling out this form.
PTO Meeting: Wednesday Sept. 30th: Click on the link to view the flyer - https://5il.co/l52m
Parent/Teacher Conferences: I met with teachers this week and we brainstormed ideas and a plan for the new format of Parent/Teacher Conferences. Many teachers have already communicated their sign up process and expectations. Please keep in mind that this is new format is new for all of us and we will work together to iron out all the details. I want to be clear that ALL families should be in contact with their student’s teacher at some point in Sept OR Nov.
I truly believe with the Class Dojo platform that we find ourselves communicating easily and weekly to best support the home to school connection. However, on Sept. 23rd OR Nov. 18th we want to dedicate intentional time to talk about your student progress academically and make sure we are taking a team approach in growing your student. Please look out for these dates to sign up for ONE time. Please note that I would prefer families to try to ZOOM or do a virtual conversation but an in person option is still acceptable. If you choose to come in person for the conference please limit the conference to ONE adult and the student (no siblings). The adult must wear a mask. We will have a separate entrance and exit and those details will be explained next week!

In quick review of all the above topics...isn't it crazy to think how MUCH we have going on. How much LOVE surrounds our students daily! How cool. Thinking from a parent involved organization, to a program that supports our kiddos getting good meals throughout the day, to basketball leagues, to parents and teachers setting time aside to talk about education, to a community supportive event that honors and gives back to our school! WOW.... It does truly take a village to raise a child. I am proud of ours!view image
What a sweet surprise to pull up to school today and see that we got “ambushed” 💜
