December Newsletter

December Newsletter



Good Evening,

I hope you all enjoyed some time with loved ones and away from school and work (hopefully you received some days off).  Here are a few notes about items coming up and what we have to look forward to this December. 



  • If you missed it, I’d like to introduce Sarah Guthrie, Administrator on Special Assignment and Kristin Matsis, Teacher on Special Assignment.  Mrs. Guthrie will be here on Friday’s and Mrs. Matsis on Thursdays as admin support.

  • Playground Update: The kids have asked for an update :)  The district has a contractor ready to install the playground over the break.  We are waiting for a few more pieces to come in.  Fingers crossed the kids will come back from break with a new playground.

  • SST’s- Student Study Team meetings are when different folks on campus get together to meet with you to discuss your child’s progress.  The team may include myself, Mr. Marius (SST Coordinator and English Learner Facilitator), Ms. Love (School Psychologist), Mrs. Alciati (Literacy Intervention), your child’s teacher, yourself, and anyone else that may have insight to your child’s progress.  This is truly a time to discuss if we need to make any adjustments, provide intervention, or just get different perspectives on how we can best help.  If your child has been recommended for a SST your child’s teacher will inform you and you will receive a follow up call from Mr. Marius to schedule the meeting.  We normally have one SST day every 6 weeks as most interventions are on a 6 week cycle.
