Early Release Day and Parent-Teacher Conferences
There will be an early release day on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at 11:30 am. The children will have lunch and then board the buses. Parent-Teacher Conferences will start at 1:00 pm that day and run until 8:00 pm. There will be no conferences on Friday, as teachers and students have the day off. If these times do not work for you, please notify your child's teacher so a mutually acceptable time and date can be selected. Please note that this early release day is not on the FY 17 calendar. We will send home a parent-teacher conference sign-up form next Friday, as we like to work together and early to ensure that families with more than one child have conference times that are close together, if possible. Spring conferences will be on March 10th from 7:30 am to 2:45 pm.
Student Council Holds a Dance
The student council will sponsor the first dance of this school year on November 11, 2016, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The dance is open to all 5th through 8th grade Weathersfield students. We are charging $2.00 to cover the cost of beverages and snacks which will be free with admission. We hope to get a DJ, but will provide a student volunteer to create and produce a playlist for the night if our regular DJ is unavailable. This is a Fall/Halloween dance but no costumes are allowed. The school dress code and behavior expectations will be enforced. Please come join us!
BASKETBALL SEASON IS ABOUT TO BEGIN*By Kelly Murphy
Mandatory Parent Meeting:
Tuesday, November 8th there will be a mandatory meeting for parents of any Weathersfield athlete who plans to participate in basketball. A sign-in sheet will be required at the door. Please note that your child will be unable to attend if a parent/guardian or an adult family member is not present. In addition to concussion training, the new scheduling system will be discussed, along with applicable rules/requirements for each age group. Attendance at both sessions is necessary if you have children in both grade spans.
Kindergarten to 4th grade parents: 6:00-6:30pm
5th grade to 8th grade parents: 6:45-7:15pm
PLEASE NOTE: In order for your student athlete to be registered for basketball at any grade level, the registration form and payment must be complete and submitted by the parent meeting on November 8th. Registrations will not be accepted after November 8th. Also, the Vermont Principals Association (VPA) requires current physicals for 5th-8th grader athletes on file. Please double check your child's health record.
