Hello to spring! Our theme for April is responsibility. Brecht Bobcats are asked to demonstrate responsibility for their learning at home and at school. It is important that children have tasks that they are responsible for such as, making their bed in the morning or packing up their backpacks for school. It is also important to hold children accountable for their responsibilities. If we don’t expect responsibility, then our children will have difficulty understanding and demonstrating this important trait. Just a reminder that third marking period report cards will be sent home on April 17.
Just a reminder that English Language Arts (ELA) and Math PSSAs will be administered to third and fourth graders, April 10-12 and April 17-18. Fourth graders will take the Science PSSA on April 24-25. We appreciate your help at home during this time (and always), in being sure that your child is getting appropriate rest during these testing windows. We will be providing snacks for our 3rd and 4th graders on PSSA test days.
The next Brecht PTO meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 25th at 6:30 pm. We appreciate all the work our PTO does and invite you to be part of a great team that supports our students, families and staff. We are planning ahead and need volunteers for next year’s events. Please consider volunteering. Your help is greatly appreciated.
As always, I thank you for your partnership. It is truly an honor to be a part of your child’s education.
Sharon Schaefer, Principal
