David Dinsmore, Assistant Principal

February 1, 2013 Dear Park Parents and Guardians, Thank you for your patience during the challenging winter months. With extreme cold and regular snowfall, arrival and dismissal continues to be a stressful time for everyone. Some ways we can continue to improve our process and maintain the highest levels of safety for students are: following the arrival and dismissal traffic patterns, carpooling with neighbors to reduce amount of cars, and keeping name signs in the passenger side car window to help staff efficiently facilitate dismissal. During the week of February 11th, you are invited to meet your child(ren)’s teacher(s) during Parent Teacher Conferences. In order to arrange conference times that best meet the needs of all of our parents, students will be dismissed at 11:45 on Thursday, February 14th and there will be no school on Friday, February 15th. The teachers look forward to meeting with you regarding your child’s learning. In addition, there is no school on Monday, February 18th for Presidents’ Day. At our first set of conferences, parents and teachers established goals for the children. At our second set of conferences many of the students are invited to be part of studentinvolved conferences. By including the students in the conference they are able to share their learning with parents and receive immediate feedback about their progress. Please look for information from your child’s teacher for specific details. As always, if you need additional information or time to speak with your child’s teacher, please let them know. The support you offer your children and the staff at Park is greatly appreciated. Your thoughts regarding your child’s learning are valued. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.

Sincerely,

Matt Melamed

David Dinsmore
