Dear Ryerson Families,
Our successful start has evolved into continuous joy and engagement in all classrooms! Students are making great strides in all areas of the curriculum. The energy in the classrooms is palpable as students share their thinking with peers, teachers and complete their individual work. As a staff, we look forward to sharing examples of this energy and rigorous work at our October conferences.
As a reminder, our October conferences are scheduled for October 22nd and 23rd. Both of these days will be early dismissal days for students which means dismissal will be at 1:00 p.m. Please plan accordingly for your child on these shortened days.
I would like to share at this time our school plans for Halloween. Our Ryerson staff has decided to bring the ghosts, goblins and fun back to the “hill” on Friday, October 31st. On Friday, October 31st; all students (K-4) will be allowed to come to school in costume! Our Ryerson school community will gather in the multi-purpose room in the morning for a “Halloween Fashion Show”. This will be followed by a Halloween treat for students back in their classrooms. After all of these exciting spooky events take place, students will pack up their costumes, place them in their backpacks and resume their regular classroom schedule and routines.
Students should wear costumes over their regular clothing. I am asking that students not bring in any accessories that may go along with their costume; such as pretend swords, wands, ropes, etc. Although these enhance a costume, these can be both distracting and unsafe in a school setting. I appreciate your support with this request.
Due to our need to adhere to room capacity and our limited parking, this event will be for students only. Again, I appreciate your understanding with this request.
Just a reminder; there will be no school for students on October 13th. I hope all families enjoy the long October weekend.
As always, I have an open door policy. If you ever have any questions, concerns or suggestions; please don’t hesitate to call, email or drop by my office.
