Welcome to Spring

And spring break!

Somers Families,

Tomorrow, April 19th, we begin spring break and our school is closed.  Enjoy the time with family and friends.  School resumes on Monday, April 29th.

Registration is open and all returning families must register for the 2019-20 school year.  The online process is found at https://www.kusd.edu/registration.  If you need assistance please come to our main office.  For new students, please register using the above link, and complete the process by bringing necessary documents to our main office.  If you are moving and not returning to Somers, contact our office.

All elementary students will be using new math resources next school year.  You will find information for Bridges at  https://www.mathlearningcenter.org/families/bridges2.  In the fall we will hold informational learning sessions.  We are excited for this transition.

Our school is embarking on growing leaders through Leader in Me. This is a paradigm shift in our thinking.  Through Leader in Me we learn the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.  Find out more at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_sLqmOCg4U.  Get excited with us!

Attendance matters and that includes being on time to school.  At this point in time, our attendance and truancy rate is of concern in comparison to last year. Per state law, students may not accrue more than five excused absences per semester and no more than 10 excused absences in a given school year (partial days are included).  Doctor excuses are needed for any absence over 10 days.  Please make attendance a priority as it is an indicator of success.

Be sure to stay in communication with your child’s teacher and read the weekly communication.  The end of the year is busy with field trips, special days, and events.  Mark your calendars to be prepared.  We are on schedule to hold our music concerts.  Mr. Walker is bringing his energy to your child’s music classess in preparation for the concerts.   All programs begin at 6:00 p.m. in the gym and doors open at 5:40 p.m.  The following is the schedule:  May 9 K- Grade 1, May 16 Grades 4-5, May 23 Grades 2-3

Our next SSC meeting is May 21 at 6:00 p.m. in the Library.  The SSC has supported your child throughout the year purchasing field trips, books, learning games and resources, classroom supplies, and custodial equipment.  We need you to do continue this work.

Enjoy your break,

Mrs. Tindall
