The Cushman School just experienced a fun event for our families at our Literacy Night. We were so pleased to see such a wonderful crowd. The smiles on our students' faces showed that they enjoyed it. Thank you to our tremendous group of teachers who planned the activities for our families! Our bookfair was a success and we will be planning another one at the end of the year during Field Day like we did last year! Speaking of Field Day, I know that many families love knowing about those important dates as far in advance as possible, so here are just a few: two remaining early release days include Wednesday, April 5 and Wednesday, May 10; April Break will run from April 17-April 21; our District Art Show will be held on May 11; our PBIS celebration for students will be on May 31 with the Toe Jam Puppet Band sponsored by our amazing PTO; Field Day will be on Thursday, June 1 with a raindate of Thursday, June 8th. Our last school day is on Wednesday, June 14th.
Our students are learning and growing and it is becoming so visible as we see them growing in their confidence in all that they do. Our kindergarten students are reading! The support you offer at home by reading with your child is so important and I thank you for your encouragement and patience. The preschool students moving on to kindergarten next year are so happy to show how much they know these days! Letter and number identification, counting, colors, shapes, writing of their name are just a few of the things that are shown to me on a daily basis by our very proud PreK students. As we have a rolling enrollment with our three-year-olds with special needs, every week we welcome new friends that our staff and students embrace enthusiastically!
With our increased needs, I invite all parents interested in volunteering at lunch or recess to please complete a CORI and contact us. Extra hands are always welcome at the Cushman School!
We will also be planning those end of year field trips soon, so if you are interested in being a chaperone it is imperative that you have completed the proper paperwork to do so.
