The Andrew B. Cushman community is one full of love, laughter, and hard work! We have dedicated and creative teachers in our preschool and kindergarten environment. We are glad that you have entrusted us with your little ones! Your children are making so much growth in such a short amount of time. It is impressive! Our preschoolers are transitioning so much better as they learn the routines and expectations! Watching them in the cafeteria is one of my favorite places to be! They are beginning to become much more social with their new classmates and the adults supervising the cafe. Our kindergarten students are rapidly grasping concepts of print and numbers and are so very eager to participate and show what they know.
Another fun time for us is each morning at 9:15. I get to work with two students who will say the morning announcements with me! These students learn to say their full name and I teach them their middle name if they don't know it. They say the date and the Pledge of Allegiance. We will work with all of the students so that everyone gets a turn or two this year! Students are usually so proud of themselves that afterwards they go skipping out of the office proudly displaying their new sticker.
We are very proud of our parents as well! We have minimized the amount of tardies and have clear lines of communication regarding pick up and dismissal. Thank you for your diligence in keeping up with your emergency contacts, address, phone numbers and for keeping consistent dismissal plans.
We continue to be a Feinstein Leadership School and all students here are considered Junior Scholars! Soon, these cards, along with our Golden Tickets, will be passed out to our students. Please keep them in a safe place and use the card at the various venues listed. We will be celebrating our Community Meetings on the last Wednesday of every month at 2:30. These community meetings are for our students and staff to come together to recognize good deeds, awesome behavior, and much, much more! I just love seeing our students celebrating and enjoying our school community. Soon, we hope to have our parents as volunteers and active participants as well. Our first field trip is coming up at the end of October for Preschool and we are keeping our fingers crossed for good weather!
As always, we are grateful for the time we have with your children and hope to work with you in supporting them in their overall growth! If I can ever be of assistance, please do not hesitate to call me.
