Weekly Parent Letter

December 20, 2016

 

Dear Branch Families,

 

It is time for my final letter of 2016!!! I want to let each of you know how much I have enjoyed working with your children and you. I love getting to know our families!!!! I wish the best for each of you in the new year!!!!

 

Thank you for all of your support with making sure that your child is in school EVERY DAY!!! Attendance has continued to improve ---- we are making great gains!!!

 

Our students do not return to school until Monday, January 9th. Our staff will return on Thursday, January 5th for planning and staff development in preparation of the new semester.

 

Classroom Christmas parties will be held on Wednesday, December 21st. Information will come home from your child’s teacher with regards to what to bring for the class parties.   This is one of the three days each school year that we can break the food rules.

 

On the last day of school for the fall semester, we do NOT have a scheduled early release; however, every year parents ask about picking up their child early. We ask that you PLEASE wait until 9:00 to check your child out, so that they can be counted as in attendance for the day. Thanks!!!!

 

When we return for the spring semester, we will have lots of awards programs and we hope that you will be able to join us!!! The schedules are in the calendar below.  

 

Don’t forget that there are many ways that you can be the one – as you visit friends and family you might have your children ask the family members/friends to share a childhood memory of the holidays with your child.

 

If there is anything that I can do for you, then please feel free to contact me at karen.kaspar@bryanisd.org or you can leave a message at 209-2900 and I will get back with you.

 

Be the one!

Karen Kaspar
