Dear Parents and Guardians,
March started out on a strong note with Read Across America Day at Aldene. We had several guest readers from across the community. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day a special one for the students.
We will focus on the character trait of trust in March. At our monthly all-school assembly, the students from Mrs. Antonelli’s and Ms. Malone’s classes will teach all of the students how they can be trustworthy at home and in school. Students will be creating walls of trust in their classrooms.
Students had the opportunity to shop for reading material at the Book Fair this week. A big thank you to the PTO for making this possible. The second grade Wax Museum was quite a success again this year. It was impressive to see the students speak with such poise and confidence. Aldene’s Talent Show will be held on March 30. You should have received a letter home with all the details.
Please remember students will be dismissed at 12:30 on Monday, March 13 as it is a Professional Development Day for our teachers and staff. Be sure to review dismissal plans with your child if there is any change in routine.
Please make note of the following important dates for March:
March 8-10 – Book Fair
March 10 - Mid-Marking Period
March 13 – 12:30 dismissal
March 15-16 – Talent Show Auditions
March 29 - Talent Show rehearsal
March 30 – Talent Show at 1:00 pm
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
