January brought us lots of snow; it is still lingering, and it is already February. Even though February is the shortest month of the year, we have many events planned. Because of the snow days, the nine weeks Benchmark testing and marking period were extended by one week.
All of our English Language Learners will be administered the WIDA test. Our scheduled parent workshops will be rescheduled to Saturday, February 20, 2016. Our PTA meeting will be moved from February 16 to February 23. It is our first Awards Night Assembly. We do hope to see you to help us celebrate our students' achievements. Also, it's time to elect new PTA officers. If you have an interest, please complete the form sent home in the February Newsletter and return it to the front office.
In addition, February is "Black History Month". We will honor President Barack Obama and his family during President's Week. We have two celebraions planned for Valentine's Day! Send a Flower Day and the PTA Sock Hop! Please support both of them.
Be sure to look for information about our school-wide STEM (Science) Fair that will be held February 22 - 26 and our 100th Day of School Celebration Day! Be sure to help your child participate in both! As always, we thank you for your continued support! Together, we will make J. L. Francis, "A Great Place to Learn!"
