It was great to see so many parents (and students at the student-led conferences in upper grades) for Parent Conference Day today and over the past week. We value our partnership and appreciate your input as we work together to support the academic, social and emotional development of your child.
The social and emotional learning (SEL) competency for the month of October is “Responsibility.” At last Friday’s assembly, our third graders did a wonderful job of singing about what being responsible learners looks and sounds like. Throughout this month, Panthers who demonstrate being responsible, as acknowledged by staff, will be recognized at our Friday morning assemblies. Speaking of assembly, due to the student holiday on Monday, we will hold morning assembly on Tues., Oct. 10.
Later on Tuesday, Oct. 10, at 5:30, we will have a PTA Executive Board meeting in the library with special guest, Amber Elenz, AISD Board of Trustee, District 5. Ms. Elenz, also a former parent of BW, will share information about the AISD long-term Facility Master Plan and the 2017 Bond Proposal. For more information on recommendations for BW, visit: www.aisdfuture.com. If you are unable to attend the PTA meeting, Ms. Elenz will also be my guest at my Principal’s Coffee on Oct. 27 in the library immediately following morning assembly.
Also, be sure to mark your calendars for our traditional Fall Carnival on Oct. 28, from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. The first BW Fall Carnival was held in 1939 and among the food items served were tuna fish sandwiches! The menu has changed, but so much remains the same: the Bryker Woods community spirit!
Bryker Woods Forever,
Jane Kronke, Principal
