Principal's Message for September

Welcome to SY13/14!

To our returning families, it is nice to see all of you again. To our new families, welcome to the Webster family. I believe you will find this to be a place where your children are well cared for and learning is rich and engaging. Your children spend more than 6 hours a day with us. It is essential that we collaborate on their care. I cannot say this enough, please communicate with your child’s teacher. Know who they are and reach out to them through email or any other means available to you. We are here to serve.

You can help us make learning happen for your child by making sure they are ready to learn each day. This includes a good night’s sleep, a warm hug, proper nutrition, and the materials they need to have a successful day at school.

As you know we have a new schedule this year. There is no supervision in the building or on the playground until 8:10AM. Please do not drop your children off at school prior to this time. Though I am in the building before 8:10, you put the safety of your child at risk knowing that there is only one adult available to help in an emergency. I appreciate your help with this significant issue. Also, if your child rides Bus 6, their arrival to school and return trip home are being delayed by the middle school run that precedes them. During his middle school run, the driver must negotiate the construction on Wellington Road. We are working with the Manchester Transit Authority to improve this situation.

As I write this note to you, we are dealing with elevated class sizes in grade one. Know that we are doing everything we can to mitigate this issue. One way or another, your children will be well served.

There is so much to say about the wonderful things going on in our school. I look forward to seeing all of you at our Parent Information Night on September 18. A schedule of events for the evening will be going home with your child. My address to you that evening will be centered on the implementation of the Common Core State Standards.

All on Behalf of Our Children,
Ms. Martin
