December News Letter

Dear Mayer Elementary Families,

The holidays are upon us, and the school year is half completed! We are finishing up our semester, and your child will be learning new concepts until the winter break. It is important for students to be at school every day. We are doing our DIBELS reading testing starting the week of December 1st.  We will also have our Benchmark Galileo testing during the week of December 8. In your child’s classes the teachers will continue to test to see if your child has made adequate progress at memorizing their basic math facts and their reading fluency. It is important for students to have these two skills. Math facts and reading fluency helps your child keep up with the instruction in class. To learn more about how to help your child, please attend our next Academic Parent Teacher Team (APTT) meeting. At our last meeting we had over one hundred families attend, and I am so excited to see how much improvement your child has made. The APTT meeting is on January 21st.

This year our holiday programs will take place on December 10th at 6:30 p.m. All of the grade levels Pre-school – 5th will be performing. The band/choir concert will be the next week on December 17th at 6:30 both in the elementary cafeteria.  Plan to join us both evenings for a melodious time. Along with our holiday fun, the PTA will be providing the Kids Korner shop again this year. Look for more information in this month’s newsletter.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday season. Remember to take some time during the winter break to read and talk with your child.

Thanks for your support,

Mrs. Leonard
