Dear Sexton Mt. Families:
It was a fabulous first day here at Sexton Mountain School. As I visited classrooms this morning students were hard at work! They were learning about one another and about our school routines and rules. Most seemed very excited to be back and in the school groove! Dominik told me that he thinks our school is so awesome that he likes to even come on the weekends. He was glad to get to come INSIDE the building again. During first grade recess students were comparing new shoes and joyfully running around with new friends! It was indeed a great day for learning!
Thanks to all of the adults who started the year off right by signing in and getting a visitor’s sticker before entering the building. We’ll have sign in sheets out front for a few more morning before school but you’ll need to come to the office to sign in if they are not there. Thanks also to those who followed the traffic patterns and made sure to park legally this morning. We are off to a great start!
As of Saturday, our entire District network was down so I was a bit nervous about whether we’d be ready for kids today. Luckily, we have paper copies of your child’s enrollment form with all the information you provided. In the event that we can’t access info online, we rely on the enrollment or paper verification forms that you turn in each year. Many of you have already sent them back to school with the most up to date information. Thank you so much for being so organized!
Teachers look forward to seeing adult family members on Thursday, September 12 from 6:30-8:00pm for our Back to School Night. Aloha High School students will supervise kids as they watch a movie in the gym while adults visit classrooms to learn about learning targets and expectations. It will be a valuable learning night for YOU!
Thank you for sharing your children with us. We are off to a great start. It’s going to be a wonderful year!

• Thanks to Garlic Jim’s Pizza, Sambo Kirkman, Tiffany Culligan, Judith Yan, Lori Laraway, Susie Wilson, and all those who provided a wonderful lunch for our staff last week. It was a treat during a day of meetings.

Wish List-These are things or jobs that make a difference to our kids, teachers or school. Send in items or let Mrs. CB know if you can volunteer.• Donations of gently used children’s magazines for our lunch time reading bins. Sports Illustrated for Kids, Ranger Rick, and ZooBooks are favorites. • Volunteer to organize and tidy our book room. We had a lot of new supplies added this year and the room could use some organizing in order for the materials to be easily accessible.
District Goal for 2010-2015: All students will show continuous progress toward their personal learning goals, developed in collaboration with teachers and parents, and will be prepared for post-secondary education and career success.
