SEPTEMBER 2012 CALENDAR & NEWSLETTER
Welcome Back! We are very excited about the 2012-2013 school year! We had a very smooth first week and are excited to have our kindergarten students join us! We welcome several new staff members this year; Kristie Martin and Kerry Hansford in Kindergarten, Carolyn Miller-Lopez and Maricela Gutierrez Rodriguez in our Strategies classroom. We will be implementing "Conscious Discipiline" school wide this year and invite parents to take the training as well. We will give specifics of this at Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 5th. As always, we have an "open door" policy, so do not hesitate to contact the office or myself if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to seeing you at Back to School Night... Mrs. Geil
Back to School Night...Plan to come to our Back to School Night Wednesday, September 5th at 6:00 p.m. Please report to the Multi-Purpose Room with Mrs. Geil. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate children on this date so the evening will be Parents Only. Please be sure to take the time to stop by our PFA table to look at the many activities and events taking place this year at Verdi. Plan to volunteer a few hours of your time to one of these events. It is very important that we show our children the importance of giving back to our school and community.
