October Cougar Corner
I think we are all ready for the crisp cool days of fall with beautiful blue skies and changing leaves. This is the time of year we think about eating apples and of course, carving pumpkins. October at Concord Elementary is going to be a busy one. We have many great opportunities planned.
Puffy the Penguin is very popular. We are gearing up for the first round of popsicle parties. When a class has 10 perfect attendance days, they receive a popsicle party. We will recognize individual students that have perfect attendance at the October PTO meeting on October 19. If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified.Our school wide attendance is up! Remember that under the state accountability program each school must have a 95% rate for the whole year. At Concord, that means that if we have 18 students absent on the same day, we do not have 95% present. Due to parents being proactive to keep students in school, we are seeing improvements in attendance. Thank you for your help! We could not do it without you!
The fall fund raiser went very well. All the brochures have been organized and counted and mailed off. Now we wait for the promotion company to plan the Hummer Pizza Party. As soon as we hear the date, we will put it on facebook and let everyone know. We had a large number of students qualify for the party.
We will have our first e-learning day on Friday, October 9. A letter was sent home giving more details about this day. Students do not attend school in the building on this day. They will complete their schoolwork from home. Teachers will be at school involved in professional development training. After reading the letter, if you have any questions, please call the school.
Coin Harvest is coming up and we will have a Book Fair this month. More information about these activities will come home at a later date. We could sure us some parent volunteers for these activities. If you are interested, please call the school. We will give your name to the appropriate person. Thanks again for all you do to make Concord the best it can be!!
