Clarksville Primary School’s January and February Letter to the Parents!
2019 has gotten off to a wonderful start here at CPS! Our students have picked up where they have left off. It is amazing the growth of our students from the beginning of the school year. Let me remind you how important it is for you to be reading with your child every evening. If you are not, you are missing out on seeing their growth and being a special part of their educational foundation.
Because January and February are kind of slow months for activities, this letter will give you a list of activities for both of them. You can always find a list of events on our web page (http://k1.csdar.org).
Our 1st grade students has started our Accelerated Reader Program. A student will read a book then take a quiz over it. Students are rewarded points and can earn prizes at different levels. This improves student comprehension and promotes a joy for reading. It is an exciting program for our students.
Now that the cold weather has finally arrived if we have to close school, you will be notified by our AlertNow phone system. It is important that we have the correct phone numbers in our system to be effective. Please let us know when your information changes. We will also contact the local radio stations KDYN/KXIO 92.7 and KLYR 106.9. If you are a member of the Primary Face Book Page an announcement will be placed there also. In the event that school is cancelled, you will be instructed to work on the packet of information labeled AMI Days in your child’s folder. You will not do the entire packet just the day that is labeled for each day up to five.
Report cards came home with your child this week. If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher. A parent can request a conference with their child’s teacher at any time during the school year. Kindergarten students should have already earned their Letters and Sounds T-shirts. If your child has not gotten theirs then you need to work with your child in that area until they earn their shirt.
Monday, January 21, 2019 is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Clarksville schools will be closed that day.
Nurse Walker will be doing BMI measurements this month. If you do not want your child to be included in this screening, please inform Nurse Walker with a note by January 25, 2019.
Tuesday, January 22, 2019 our kindergarten class will be having an assembly at 8:50 a.m. Brian and Terri Kinder will be rocking our cafeteria with their KinderSongs. Our students will have a fun time and cd’s will be available for purchase. You can find additional information at kindersongs.com
Thursday, January 24, 2019 we will be celebrating the 100th Day of School. Teachers will have a variety of activities that center around the concept of 100. Students may dress up as if they are 100 years old on this day.
Wednesday, January 30, 2019 we will be taking class pictures. Order forms will be sent home soon and parents will have the opportunity to purchase an 8 x 10 picture with student’s names printed on them for $12.00. Please make checks out to Wingard Photography.
The Clarksville Jr. High Cheerleaders will be holding a cheerleading camp in our gym on January 30, January 31, and February 1, 2019 from 3:15p.m- 5:00 p.m. They will be performing at the half time of the Junior High Basketball game on Monday, February 4, 2019. Additional information will be coming home soon.
On Thursday, January 31 Clarksville Primary will be holding a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) Night from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Teachers will have special activities planned to do with you and your child. This will be a fun evening!
Wednesday, February 7, 2019 progress reports will be coming home with your child.
Valentine’s Day will fall on a Thursday this year. We ask that you please celebrate at home with your child. It just breaks my heart to see the faces of those students who do not receive anything while their classmates receive things from parents and grandparents. Now that being said I realize that some of you just have to send something to school. Please remember that your child has small hands so arrangements should be small enough for them to carry. Orders should arrive at school no later than 2:00 p.m. Orders should have the child’s name and teacher’s name written on them. Balloons and glass containers are not allowed on school buses. Please do not send anything to school that has not been requested by your child’s teacher. Thank you.
There will be no school on Friday, February 15, 2019 and Monday, February 18, 2019. Classes will resume on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at 8:15 a.m.
Have A Great January and February
Mr.Ziegler and the Primary Staff
