Weekly Update - 8/13/17

posted Aug 13, 2017, 7:18 AM by Ryan Masciotra

Good evening, Corwin International families.  This is Mrs. Masciotra with our weekly update.  

As we head into our first full week, we want to remind families that we will begin enforcing uniforms soon.  Thank you for helping that your child is in proper uniform.  If you have not done so already, please return all paperwork that was distributed to your child on the first day of school.  We also want to remind everyone that as we head into a new school year, we plan to ensure that we are prepared for all types of situations.  This includes practicing important safety drills.  Should a drill or situation take place, we will inform you by sending out a message on the same day.

On Wednesday, August 16th, we will have a required parent meeting for all grades.  There are two different times to accommodate families with more than one student.  The first meeting is 5:30 to 6:15 and 6:15 to 7pm.  PTO will be holding a uniform sale during this time as well.  During this meeting, you will receive important information from your child’s teachers.  Student attendance is not encouraged.  At 7pm on Wednesday, there will be an informational meeting in room 113 to learn more about the 6th grade trip to Washington, DC.  

Thursday, August 17th is a professional development day for staff.  There is no school for students.

Friday, August 18th is a regular day for students.  Spirit shirt order forms are also due on this day.  

Students - are you interested in becoming a student leader?  Student Council is coming!  Be listening for more information!
