A Note From Mr. Witherspoon:
Welcome to the New Year!!!
I hope that everyone had a chance to spend some quality time creating memories with your children! The students were all smiling through their sleepy little eyes this morning as they walked in the door. Thank you for all your work over the break keeping their minds busy and focused on the skills they have been learning in school!!!
We finished up our second round of I-Ready testing before the break and the progress that we have made thus far is fantastic! We will continue to work to identify the individual needs of each student as we analyze the data (as well as the data within the classroom) that these tests provide for us. Congratulations to the entire community on their hard work each day as we strive to be the best Eagles we can be!!!
Are you, or know someone that is, interested in helping out around Cleveland? We are looking for volunteers to help out directing traffic during arrival/dismissal times, assisting with recess duty, morning check-in, or many other jobs that we can find. Please let me know if you are interested...thanks!!!
Please, as always, give me a call or email if you have any questions/concerns/compliments regarding Cleveland!!!!
Stay Awesome and Keep SOARing Eagles!!!!
Winter Outside Recess:
Now that the weather is changing, it is very important that your child is dressed appropriately for recess. Please remember that when it snows, your child must have both winter boots, snow pants, and gloves to be able to play in the snow. They will be able to go outside if they don't have those items, but the will have to play on the blacktop. We don't call home for wet clothes from recess, so this will ensure that your child stays dry.
