Needham News Feb. 22, 2021

No School This Wednesday 2/24/21 

Wednesday is a Professional Learning Day for all staff.  Students in every learning model have the day off! The Needham team we will be collaborating and working together to continue to aim at high quality learning opportunities for every student, every day.  

The MOST Important 20 Minutes of Your Day

You’re going to hear us continue to talk about the importance of reading with and to your child(ren) for 20 minutes each day.  You are your child’s first and most important teacher, and we need your support to increase student reading proficiency across the school.  

Daily Attendance

We are seeing improvements to our daily attendance.  Keep up the great work of getting your child to arrive at school on time, by 8:30am.  Remember, your child is late if they arrive after 8:30am.  We understand that it is necessary to keep your child home if they are feeling sick, but otherwise, please continue to support their on-time arrival by 8:30am.   

Next School Year 21/22

Really? I know it seems hard to fathom, but we could use your help if you know your child(ren) will not be returning to Needham next year.  If you could please call Laura Mottershead in the front office (970)247-4791 to let us know, it would be very helpful as we look ahead to purposefully plan.  

We hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Please continue to reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback.  We appreciate your continued partnership, so that we can support the growth and achievement of each Needham student. Thank you!
