We had a great meeting last week and were thrilled to see a number of new faces! Be sure to check out the meeting minutes as they contain the complete meeting details and will be voted on for approval at our next meeting on January 19th.

A highlight of the meeting was discussion of creating an After School Activities Committee. An overwhelming amount of survey participants were interested in after school activities for students and we’re excited to make that happen — but we need your help. Please consider signing up for the After School Activities Committee. We’ll need a variety of volunteers to make this happen. If you have a special talent you’d be willing to teach the kids, we’d especially love to hear from you.

We also kicked off our Fall Fundraiser which we are super excited about but we still have a long way to go. Please be sure to share the pledge form with family and friends. Remember, students raising the most funds will earn prizes! The current leading students have $185 in pledges. Total pledges submitted as of 10/7/15 is $930.00. You can also sign up for our year round fundraisers like Stop and Shop, Target Red Card and more.

Also, don’t forget to send in your Room Parent/Phone Tree sign up forms if you’d like to be included in the Phone Tree for your students class. Phone Trees are used by teachers and Room Parents when planning classroom celebrations and special events. We’ll be drawing room parents at the October 30th Science Night. if you have not received the form yet, you should shortly.

News from the Principals Office:

  • STAR assessments in reading and math have been completed. Intervention letters will be going home this week.
  • The Warwick Beacon will be publishing the “Student of the Week” for each grade level (K-6) beginning in November.

We are thrilled to have 91 PTA members so far this year, including most of our teachers. It’s a great show of support for our school and our students! And, of course, it’s never to late to sign up.

A thank you created by our Hospitality Committee for the Norwood Custodial Staff! They were very surprised and appreciative!

We’d love to see more photos of our students from fun PTA sponsored events on our website, Facebook page and these newsletters. Because we take student privacy very seriously, we won’t post pics of your child without express permission. If you’re interested in having photos of your student included when & where possible, please take a moment and fill out our permission form.
