November 28, 2022- Eye of the Tiger Family Message

Dear Barrett Families:

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends! We look forward to seeing you and our students back! 😀

ARRIVE ON TIME!     The school day begins at 9:00AM. It is strongly recommended that students be dropped off by 8:45 so that they can have the option to get breakfast and be in class, ready to start their day by 9:00 AM. Students who want breakfast are able to enter the building starting at 8:40 AM. If your student is late (arrives after 9:00 AM) more than 3 times, we will contact you to see how we can support you in getting your student to school on time. It is important that each child is in their class, ready to begin their day by 9:00 AM as often as possible.

Employee of the Year NominationsDue December 9, 2022                                   

Is there a teacher, administrator, custodian, food services staff, Extended Day worker or another member of your school whom you’d like to recognize? Arlington Public Schools is requesting nominations for Employees of the Year 2022-23. Any Arlington citizen, APS employee, parent or student may submit a nomination to your school’s principal for consideration.  Find nomination information HERE.

Playground Update–  We are excited to see the progress on our playground when we return from the holidays. We are still waiting for a completed flooring and  the official green light from the safety inspector before we can open it up for students to play. We will send an update as soon as we get that green light!

SEL Update: The SEL focus for the month of December is Empathy. Please see here for more information on Empathy and how you can help your child develop perspective-taking skills with us.
