As we look at the wonderful month of November, let us examine some of the upcoming events that will help make this a very special month for our children. We are asked to observe a number of holidays recognizing Election Day, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving. This will make November pass by very quickly. It is my hope that you and the teachers will work together to make sure that the children give their very best effort this month. The children have completed running record literacy assessments and have taken Measure of Student Learning (MOSL) assessments in ELA. I want to thank our parent coordinator, Nancy DeName, and our PTA officers for helping to make Family Fridays, as well as the Halloween Party for Grades PreK-5, such marvelous successes. During this month we will be continuing our examination of presidential candidates and their positions on some of the major issues facing our country. We will be conducting polls and debates on every grade level this month. We want the children to develop their critical thinking and oral speaking skills through these activities. Elections will be our focus during the next 2 weeks as the children prepare to vote for President and VP of the U.S., as well as for PS 17 president and VP and class officers for Grades 4 & 5. This will take place on Monday, November 7th. Speeches will be heard by the entire student body at 8:30 am in the auditorium followed by voting in the classrooms. Students elected will be sworn in on Friday, November 18th, at 8:30 am in the auditorium. Parent-Teacher conferences are on Thursday, November 3rd from 1:00-3:00 pm and 4:30-7:30 pm. Report cards will be sent home on Thursday, November 17th. Our Thanksgiving Awards Assembly will take place on Wednesday, November 23rd,at 8:30 am. I am very excited by the season and the wonderful events that help make this such a very special part of the school calendar. I look forward to your ongoing support and participation in the life of our school. Thank you for all that you do and for your attention in these matters.
