Welcome back from break 2.0. At least we got back together long enough to get the book, the Littles – our Goochland Reads selection for our elementary community. Just in case you wanted to see the video the kids saw on Tuesday afternoon for the kickoff I’m including the link here.
Not a whole lot to report at a school level calendar wise. Please take a close look at teacher newsletters as there are bound to be changes in plans due to the snow days. Also note that report cards will now come home on Wednesday instead of Monday.
I’m putting in one last plug for Conundrum Day. The free event will take place on Saturday, January 20th, from 9:00-11:30AM at Goochland Middle School. Here is the link the sign up flyer for you to print. Please send it in by Wednesday.
With us coming back after a long break I wanted to send another reminder about pickup procedures. Here is a link to the letter sent in December. We’d like you to send a paper note or an email to the office staff by 10am if you are planning for an early office dismissal. We cannot guarantee that an email message will get caught by the teacher or office in the afternoon. Unannounced arrivals after 2:30pm may result in having to wait until dismissal at 3:10pm. Early pickups not only impact academic learning, it also becomes a safety concern if we have too many people picking up in the office. I encourage car pickups to arrive between 3:10pm and 3:20pm using the car line.
I see a few families downloaded our new Apple Book. I’m providing the link again:
I’m hoping for a full week of school. Make sure you are sending cold weather gear every day!
