Thank you so much for an amazing first day of school. Students came prepared and ready to learn and being READY is one of our 3 R's! Ask your child tonight or tomorrow morning what the other two R's are at Winans that help us be successful.
There were so many smiling faces by students, teachers, and parents today. Thank you parents/guardians for helping your child come on time to school. Remember breakfast begins at 7:45 in the cafeteria and school begins at 8:20. Coming on time (not too early and not late) shows us that you are READY!
Also, thank you for all the school supplies. Students loved putting these away in their classrooms. This also shows that your child is READY!
Today was a long day for many of our first graders and even for our second graders who have had different schedules this summer. One reminder is to get to bed on time so once again your child is READY! SLEEP is so important. With 8-10 hours of sleep a night your child will be READY to learn.
Another way to help your child be ready is to have your child eat a nice big breakfast and bring a healthy snack. This is also crucial to your child's success and shows us your child is READY to learn. In fact, if you haven't heard, at Winans, we have a great new HEALTH/SMART SNACK and CELEBRATION INITIATIVE beginning this year. Please read about this to learn more how you can help your child be READY to learn with healthy snack options.
Once again, thank you so much for all you do for your child. We so enjoyed meeting so many of you parents yesterday and today. We are READY to have an amazing year as the Soaring Eagles of Winans and we hope you are too! When families and schools join together great success can happen for our children. Thank you! Thank you!
See you tomorrow for another great day.
