Jetland Connection for 9-24-23

Posted by Shelia Burnette on 9/24/2023 6:00:00 PM

Greetings Jetland Nation,
This is your proud principal, Dr. Burnette, with a few reminders.

Thank you for the families who attended our Annual Title I and Back to School Night event last Thursday. 

Monday's Motivational Theme is Hispanic Heritage, so we invite staff and students to dress in shirts, outfits or colors that represent our countries of origin for our Hispanic community members at Hall-Woodward.

First Quarter Progress Reports will be sent home on Thursday afternoon.  Please review this with your All-Star and feel free to contact your child's teacher by Class Dojo to schedule a phone, virtual or face-to-face conference.  It's important to know how you can support your student to grow one year or more this year, as well as to reach or exceed proficiency on their grade level work. Students have to read 30 minutes every night in order to grow their vocabulary, fluency in reading, and their comprehension.  Please have them do this and ask them questions about what they read.

Families, please remind your All-Star that we cannot afford to lose instructional time due to disciplinary issues.  So, they need to follow teacher directions and school rules, avoid bullying or offensive statements or behaviors and treat others the way that they would want to be treated. Our students have a lot of skills, gifts and talents that can show when they focus on why they are at school and to make you proud.  Bus behavior must also be safe in order to get every student to school safely and to avoid bus suspensions. 

Lastly, please mark your calendars for Fall Picture Day on October 12.
