In the Leonard Loop News and Updates: September 8, 2017

Welcome Back!

What a great start to the school year! I always consider myself so fortunate to work in education; a place where every fall we can begin anew. We can spend the summer reflecting and return to school rejuvenated; excited to make changes for our new children and give them the very best version of ourselves. I love that I have the opportunity to work with children everyday; to see their brilliant little minds at work and be a part of the memories they make here at Leonard. I truly have the best job in the world. Thank you for sharing your children with me. I promise to take the very best care of each and every one of them.

Picture Day: Tuesday, September 19th

Your child will be bringing home order forms this upcoming Tuesday for picture day. Please return these forms to school by the 19th. Kaiser offers an option to purchase packages online with our school code - look for that on the order form. Also, I'd like to mention this is the opportunity to purchase a yearbook for your child. Yearbooks are distributed in June, and it's difficult to order one then. Please consider purchasing a picture package that includes a yearbook, or selecting the yearbook option for your family.

Back-to-School Celebration: Friday, September 22nd, 6:00 - 8:30

Our wonderful PTO will be hosting a Back-to-School Celebration for our families on Friday, September 22nd. There will be music and dancing, so be ready for a good time!

Early Release Day: Wednesday, September 27th, 1:10 Dismissal

In order to continue our learning as professionals and provide the BEST instruction to your children, all teachers will be attending professional learning sessions on the afternoon of September 27th. Please mark your calendars that dismissal on this day will be 1:10. If you would like to pack your child an extra snack this day, you are welcome to do so.

Best Practice in Literacy Instruction: PA 306

As a district, Troy is committed to providing the highest quality literacy instruction to every one of our students. We are dedicated to continually improving our practice, monitoring student progress, and providing support that is tailored to every child's needs. Please read the attachments from the district that were included with the E-Blast. These offer information on Public Act 306 (PA 306), otherwise known as the Third Grade Bill.

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope your family can make time to relax and have fun together. See you on Monday!
