Dear Cahill Elementary Families:
Today is the last day of October and our building is buzzing with excitement for this afternoon’s SPIRIT Assembly and Parade. We are fortunate to have a beautiful day for those who celebrate Halloween and will go Trick or Treating.
A reminder to parents about attendance. It is important that the habit of waking up in the morning, getting ready for school, and arriving on time be instilled now. Elementary school builds a foundation for children, for not only their academics, but for daily habits as well. Students should enter the building everyday no later than 9:00 am and report to their homeroom. Many students arrive earlier for breakfast, homework help, etc. This is fine. Homework help begins at 8:15 each morning for those students who wish to attend.
This week, on Thursday, Nov. 2nd, we will hold our EARLY EVACUATION DRILL with the rest of Ulster County. Students will dismiss from Cahill at 3:00 PM. We will hold our Supper Support beginning at 5:30 that afternoon, followed by our 7:00 PTA meeting. We wish to give a huge SHOUT OUT to The Main Street Restaurant for their kind donation of supper this month. As always, we thank the Faculty and Staff who volunteer to help with the homework and serve supper!
November will be a short month with only 17 days of instruction. November 3rd will find Student Council holding their election. This assembly will be for grades 4, 5, & 6. Students will vote for officers after the assembly. There will be no school on November 7th as it is a Superintendent Conference Day. On November 8th, we will hold our Veterans Day Assembly at 2 PM. We currently have 15 Veterans attending in addition to our members of the American Legion. Lifetouch picture re-takes are on Tuesday, November 14th. The 14th and 15th are also the dates for Parent Visits. November 16th is Parent/Teacher Conferences from 5-8 PM. School will be closed 11/22-11/24 due to the Thanksgiving Holiday. We will hold our Winter Concert on Thursday, November 30th, both in the afternoon and the evening.
Our Character Trait for November is “Thankfulness”. We will look to see those who demonstrate thankfulness throughout the day. Please be reminded to write your child’s name inside their coats, sweatshirts, hats, and gloves. Also, please check the Lost & Found when you come in for Parent/Teacher Conferences, the pile is getting larger with each day that passes.
Very truly yours,
Dawn Scannapieco, Principal
