Good afternoon, White Marsh families! This is Mrs. Steele with the update for the last week of school, June 10 - 14, 2019!. This will be an “A Week”.
This week, the Kindergarten Celebration will be held on Tuesday, beginning at 10 am. Friday will be busy, with our 5th graders being promoted beginning at 10 am. Friday is also an early dismissal; White Marsh will dismiss at 1:45 pm. Please look for report cards to be sent through the mail again this year; they will be mailed on Friday, June 21. Reminders this week include our school’s support of Relay for Life. Thank you for supporting this cause; the last day for donations is Tuesday.
Thank you for completing the Parent Survey; in all we received over 40 responses. Your feedback will be shared with staff, and will help guide our School Improvement Plan next year. We have had a great year at White Marsh, including many academic and social successes for our Bears! As we look to next year, an area in which we will continue to work for improvement is Attendance. As we end this year, we will not meet our School Improvement Goal in this area. We have over 75 students with 10 or more absences; in addition, there are many late arrivals and early sign-outs which all add up to many hours of missed instruction. As you plan activities for next year, please work around dates in which school is in session. A link to next year’s calendaris included for your reference.
Finally, as we wrap up this wonderful year, please join me in wishing a fond farewell to one of our amazing teachers, Ms. Quinlan. She will be leaving White Marsh due to a move out of state. Ms. Quinlan has touched the lives of many students in her nine years at White Marsh. We wish her the best, and will truly miss her!
White Marsh students and families, it has been such a pleasure working with you again this year. The hallways will not be the same for over 2 months, and I look forward to hearing the roar of the Bears back for a new year on September 3! Have a wonderful summer!
