Greetings Schoeffner Shark Families,
The month of January passed so quickly! Thank you families for participating in our 2nd quarter parent/teacher conferences. While we do not have another scheduled conference time this year, I strongly encourage you to keep in touch with your child's teacher(s) to help ensure your child makes progress during these last few months of school. Students have great opportunities to make improvements in their grades. Focus, perseverance, and diligence are all key to reaching their goals. Schoeffner is a place where Every Student Excels. If you still have concerns that you would like to have addressed, please speak with your child’s teacher first regarding situations in which they are directly involved. If there is a bus dispute, address it with the bus driver. Conflicts or concerns can best be addressed through effective and timely communication between the parties most involved. If a resolution is not reached, please call the school office and ask for a school administrator. Please allow 24 hours for calls to be returned. As a reminder, the principal delegates to the assistant principal to act on his/her behalf on many occasions.
The first week in February is also National School Counseling Week. Mrs. Pethe is a huge asset to our school community. She goes above and beyond each day to help address our social emotional needs. Thank you Mrs. Pethe for showing compassion and concern for all of our Schoeffner students and staff.
Nationally, Black History Month is celebrated in February. Daily throughout the month, students will be given a trivia question to answer. Students who answer the question correctly will have their name entered into a drawing for a prize. In addition, students will complete various activities throughout the month to learn about the contributions made by African Americans in music, art, science, and civil rights.
During the month of March we will recognize the many cultures that represent our Schoeffner families. Be on the lookout for a flyer requesting your assistance in this very important project.
While our Mardi Gras break may not be celebrated with parades and festivities, we hope you enjoy time with your family and engage in a new or fun adventure.
