Hello, Nitrauer Families,
It was wonderful seeing and talking to so many of you at Back to School Night! If you were unable to attend, please contact your child’s teacher to schedule a parent conference on Monday, November 20th, or Tuesday, November 21st.
We have important information for you today:
- Today your student was given a purple half-sheet that includes information on how to sign up for the Sapphire Parent Portal, and also how to update your contact information.
- Wednesday, third grade students received iPads that will be used all year, during the school day (not taken home). Stay tuned for information from your child’s teacher regarding the exciting things students will be doing with their iPads.
- The Buddy Bench- A Place for Every Child: When students feel excluded, it’s painful, lonely and confusing. A Buddy Bench is a tool to let students know that someone needs a friend. How to use the Buddy Bench https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVaJtnTTV_I
