Hello Locust School families! May is here and the students are excited for all of the upcoming events that are planned! I think we can all say how thrilled we are to be able attend the upcoming Spring Sings taking place on May 18th (1st grade) and May 19th (Kindergarten) later this month! Don’t forget a blanket to sit on and your ID!
Also taking place this month is our annual Locust Staff Appreciation lunch! This year it will feature a “grab and go” lunch for our Locust staff to enjoy. This event is only possible with the support of our Locust families and thank you as always for your support!
Mr. Curran is also hard at work leading our students as they prepare the Locust gardens for planting! The PTA has donated soil for the planters and flower bed and will also be supplying the children with flowers for planting. Another exciting contribution from the PTA was the grant approved for the Primary School Mindfulness Resources to be used to support our primary staff as they focus on improving student wellness, teaching mindfulness, and supporting emotional regulation. Both contributions are a direct result of the support received through the dues paid by our members each year – we thank you for your support and for helping to enrich our children’s primary educational experience!
May is also the month in which the Budget Vote takes place at the High School. The PTA supports voting “Yes!” for the budget. Please see the main PTA newsletter for more information about the upcoming vote, budget chats with Dr. Sinha and Board of Education meetings. We will also once again be conducting our Hemlock student vote online! Keep an eye on your inboxes for more information about this super fun vote!
PARP is also still in full swing, with a Mental Health Awareness Read Aloud on May 6th at 7 PM and the much anticipated “Reading Minutes Tracking” taking place May 17th-27th! Please see the main newsletter for more information about these events!
Our final All-Schools PTA meeting will take place on May 11th at 7:30 PM and will be conducted virtually. Please join us for our final PTA meeting of the year!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
