Dear Parents and Students,
Three days done and 177 left to go! I cannot express the joy I feel having the kids back in school. There are many important tasks that need to be done every summer, but none of them brings the energy or enthusiasm of the children. As I told them at line up on Wednesday, I thank God that they are back, and pointing to the building, I tell them this building is not Star, we are Star. Welcome back to all the students, parents, teachers, staff, and clergy.
Back to School Night is this Thursday starting at 6:30 in Church. All parents from K -8 are required to attend. Extended Care will be open from 6:15 until 7:50 ($5 per child). The evening will start in Church with a greeting from the principal and pastor. Teachers will be introduced and Parent Club Co Presidents will make a short presentation.
At that point parents will be directed to their child’s classroom and teachers will share their programs and plans for the year with you. The presentations will be very general as there is always time for specific questions later. For those of you with two children attending Star, each teacher will do an encore presentation. Parents with three or more kids here at Star will have to “divide and conquer” to hear each teacher. The event will end at 7:45.
Please be sure to pick up your copy of the FAMILY HANDBOOK in your child’s classroom. Please sign and turn in the cover page before you leave and please be sure to read it.
I look forward to a wonderful year at Star and I know you do too.
God Bless You,
