January Message From Principal Maguire
Dear Country School Families,
Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the time off from school and was able to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. We are happy to see a refreshed and rejuvenated group of students return to school.
Country School has a New Year's Resolution! We are committed to offering more events for everyone to come together as a school community. Fostering a strong school community has a positive impact all around. By providing opportunities to get to know each other better, celebrate our school and enjoy each other's company, students and families will feel more connected to their teachers and the school. As relationships grow stronger, students are more likely to take greater risks, stay motivated and strive for success. As partnerships between families and teachers strengthen, the learning potential increases. When everyone is connected to the heart of the school, great things can happen!
For the remainder of the school year, the PTO and I will work together to organize a community event each month. Our first event is BINGO night, coming up on January 18th. Stay tuned for more information. Other possible ideas for future events include: Movie Night, Literacy Night, Math Night and a Diversity Fair! If you would like to be involved in helping coordinate any of these events, please don't hesitate to let us know!
The photos above are a sampling of projects children have worked on this Fall. Can you guess what "questions" they were answering?
