SuperKids Camp Registration

Representative from Parks and People will be here tomorrow after school to talk about SuperKids Camp and to assist with the registration process. SuperKids is a six week literacy enrichment program sponsored by the Parks & People Foundation and funded by grants from MSDE and the 21st CCLC Program. Rising 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade students are eligible to attend. The camp will be open from June 26th through August 4th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This summer Roots & Branches will be a site for this amazing opportunity.

Students will be engaged in environmental education, literacy instructions, the 100 Book Challenge, math activities, and Powered by Playworks. Enrichment activities will include the YMCA, Port Discovery, The Music Workshop, and more.

Because we are a Title I school, registration for this six week program is only $100. Financial assistance is offered for families that are eligible. Application for financial aid requires paycheck/direct deposit stubs, Aid to Dependent Children (ADC), Social Security, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), SNAP benefits, stipends, or foster care payments.

Teacher Appreciation Week

May 1st through May 5th is designated as National Teacher Appreciation Week! Our teachers and staff work tirelessly day in and day out to create a positive learning environment for our children. In addition to the hours you see them at school, they spend a considerable amount of time planning lessons, meeting with teams, consulting colleagues, talking with parents and taking courses to improve their professional practice.

Our teachers encourage our children to do their best work academically and foster positive relationships that support students socially. They wipe runny noses, dry tears, and send scraped knees to the health suite. They always have an ear for the child who has hurt feelings and the parent looking for advice for supporting learning at home.

Last weekend The Mission Continues left little goodie bags for the teachers and put up posters in the main hallway. If you have the opportunity, take a minute this week to thank a teacher for all he or she does for our children.
