From The Principal

March weather can be very unpredictable. Some days are sunny and in the 60's while others are brisk. Please continue to have your child to dress for cool weather each day since we go outside for recess. If your child has lost their hat, gloves or other clothing, please encourage them to come look at our lost and found.

This month is packed with many exciting literacy opportunities . Reading daily builds fluency, exposes students to vocabulary words in a variety of contexts, broadens their knowledge of the world and strengthens communication skills. It is something that requires lots of training or practice to improve. I encourage you to reread some of your family’s
favorite books, explore new authors at your local library or create your own story together as a family this month in celebration of literacy.

Our Kindergarten Open House is on March 13th in the gym. If you know of a family in your neighborhood that has a child entering kindergarten this September, please pass on our school phone number or website. This is an informational night for parents to hear about our kindergarten program and begin the enrollment process.

Thank you for your continued support of your child’s education and the success of our school community.

Sincerely,
Nancy Brunetz, Proud Flickinger Principal
