Welcome Back Breakfasts

Dear Families,

Don’t forget that tomorrow morning is the Welcome Back Breakfast for the parents of children in grades K, 1 and 2. Please come to the cold lunchroom at 9am to meet other parents, talk to PTA representatives, and get to know more about our school.

The Welcome Back Breakfast for the parents of those in grades 3 through 5 will be next Friday, October 4, also at 9am in the cold lunchroom.

For those of you on Facebook:
Target is running a Facebook campaign through September 30 that generates donations to schools. Visit PS41′s page on “Give With Target” for more information.

Next week starts our catalog fund-raiser — look for more information in backpacks soon!

Meet the Teacher Night

Dear Families,

This is to remind you all that tomorrow evening, Thursday the 19th, is Meet the Teacher Night at PS41. Please go to your child’s classroom promptly at 6pm to meet the teacher and hear all about what your child will be studying this year.

The classroom sessions end at 6:30, when we’ll begin our first PTA meeting of the school year in the auditorium. This is an important meeting, at which you’ll get to meet the cluster teachers who will be working with your child – science, art, music, and more – as well as hear more about the new Common Core curriculum and this year’s state test results. You’ll also get to meet the incoming PTA Executive Board and School Leadership Team.

As usual with our first meeting of the year, we will NOT be able to provide babysitting during this meeting. Please leave your children home this time.

PLUS…
Save the Date! The annual Welcome Back Parents’ Breakfast for those with children in K-2 will be held on Friday, September 27, from 9-10:30 am. Parents with students in grades 3-5 should circle the following Friday on their calendars – your Welcome Back Breakfast will be on Friday, October 4. Be sure to check the online calendar for all upcoming dates:

See you tomorrow night!

Back to School Email

Dear Families,

We’re pretty sure what you’re all up to this evening – checking those supply lists and backpacks, getting everything labeled, getting everyone to bed early. Tomorrow is the big day! We can’t wait to see everyone again.

A few things you should know for this week:

Please bring your child to school at 8:30 am. For tomorrow only, students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will enter through the doors on 35th Ave. that are on the west side (the side closer to Bell Blvd.) of the building (also known as the fourth-grade exit doors). Students in grades K, 1, and 2 will use the main entrance. Starting Tuesday everyone will enter through the main doors,  but for tomorrow using two entrances will help alleviate overcrowding.

If you’re walking your child to the entrance, please park legally and safely and then walk to the school. If you’re driving and dropping your child off, please remember NOT to stop your car anywhere except the designated drop zone.

Our new school calendar is up and running on pta41.com (not dot org – our new site is a dot com). Visit it here, and bookmark it so you can keep up all year.

We’ll be adding more dates as we get them, but for now you can see the first few events you need to know about:

- If your child is in Extended Day, that starts on Tuesday, 9/10, at 7:50 am.

- This Thursday, 9/12, is Back-to-School Night at Pesso’s. Please come by to Pesso’s at 203-20 35th Ave between 7pm and 9pm. Every PS41 student who shows up will get a No Homework Pass! A portion of the entire register between 7 and 9 goes to our school, so bring your friends and neighbors. It’s still summer, technically, so come indulge!

- Mark your calendars for NEXT Thursday, 9/19, which is Meet the Teacher Night (starting at 6 pm), followed by the first PTA meeting of the year. Don’t miss it!

Welcome back, and we’ll see you at school tomorrow!
