Finish Strong, Summer Reading and TVFR-May 24, 2016

Dear Sexton Mt. Families:   

Spring is a time when our focus is on finishing strong!  Before school Monday, a number of parents shared that families were starting the countdown.  Based on adult enthusiasm, I wondered if children would also have summer vacation on the mind.  As I visited classrooms, students were calm and quiet.  In every room, they were hard at work!  In Ms. Hiatt’s class, children compared seeds and bulbs.  Several classrooms reviewed the schedule for the upcoming week.  In other rooms students were charting how they got to school.  Kids were calm and focused.  It was a great start to the day! 

This week Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue teams have been visiting our school with the goal of gaining familiarity with our building.  Uniformed public servants got to visit with kids too.  Whether it’s TVFR, THPRD, Beaverton Police or the Beaverton City Library, when outside agencies visit our school, we learn from one another.   

 We look forward to seeing students and families at the Beaverton City Library on June 2 for family literacy night from 5:30-6:30pm.  Conference rooms A and B will house special events for students.  It’s the perfect time to sign up for the summer reading program and to help your child get familiar with space.  We hope that children will be set for a summer of JOYFUL reading!  Check out the sites below for ideas on how to help your child read more.
Thank you for sharing your children with us!

With Gratitude,

Teresa Clemens-Brower
