The third graders did a wonderful job at their Veteran’s Day performance this afternoon! Everyone was blown away by sixth grader Brianna’s voice as she sang The Star Spangled Banner. Come see the performance tonight at 6:00 pm in the Link Gym.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 15 the Link third grade students will be presenting a Veterans Day Showcase. We would like to officially invite you to join us for this special performance. The concert will begin at 6:00PM in the Link gym and will last for approximately forty-five minutes. We are also inviting veterans and active military to our performance to thank them for their service. If you know any veterans or active military, please extend an invitation for them to join us that evening. We hope you can join us for this fun and educational event, but if that is not possible, you will be able to Live Stream the event at https://youtu.be/5MzCJwjbmfw.

Congratulations to Mrs. Schlosser’s first grade class for earning the primary Pride of the Month award for October. And congratulations to Mrs. Benson’s fifth grade class for earning the intermediate Pride of the Month award for October. Thanks to those classes for showing great behavior!
We are looking forward to connecting with parents at our first round of student-led conferences this Thursday, October 5 and Friday, October 6. Since our conferences are student-led, we ask that students attend so they can share with parents their progress so far this year, as well as goals they have set for the remainder of the 2017-2018. Teachers will also be sharing their insights, handing out fall MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) scores and establishing year-long goals during conferences. Please remember that our school day schedule is adjusted to accommodate the conferences. Thursday, October 5 will be a half-day of school with a dismissal time of 11:40. There is no school on Friday, October 6.
This month our primary class that earned pride of the month was Mrs. Forster’s first graders. Congratulations for being recognized for your great behavior
The intermediate class that showed great behavior in September was our 5th grade Dual language class. Great job 5th graders!
