Spetember 24 - Parents Note
Week of September 24, 2012
Parents Please Note:
  1. A foliage hike up Cardigan Mountain  is planned for Friday, October 5 , 2012 Rain date: Friday,October 12, 2012.  Parents and volunteers are welcome. We will leave Estabrook at 8:30 AM and will return at 3:00 PM. Students will need a jacket, sturdy shoes, a packed lunch, and an unbreakable water bottle.
  1. Iowa tests should be finished by Wednesday of this week.  Spelling lists are abbreviated this week due to the continued testing schedule.
  1. The school board has voted to give a 25% subsidy for a 30 minute private music lesson for any students who wish to learn violin, viola, cello, or piano.  Private lessons occur on Wednesdays. Depending on your child’s age and grade level, many of these lessons are scheduled during the school day. Glee Charlestream is the instructor.
  1. The first 6 weeks of school is a time to establish important routines and work habits. Your understanding and support in helping us develop these concepts into habits is most appreciated. Examples of these skills include forming a line quickly and quietly, raising hands instead of blurting out answers, and working quietly to avoid distractions to others. A meaningful discussion at home on these necessities will go a long way in instilling these values here at our school. Thank you for your contributions.
  1.  Photographs are taken candidly in the classroom at various times.  These pictures are used for teaching purposes and may be used occasionally in a presentation to our church congregation about the progress of our school year.  (Our  entire educational program is heavily subsidized by our local congregation) We also like to use photographs on our website and may choose to feature some in a school brochure.  A photo release needs to be updated yearly for these purposes.  Please sign the attached permission form and return it to school.  Please note that if you should object to having your child’s picture taken, you may document that  request that on this form as well.

     6.  The Central Vermont Academy Choir, conducted by Mr. Glee Charlestream, will be
          preforming at the Plainfield Seventh-day Adventist Church on Saturday, October 13, 2012.

          Please plan to join us for this memorable event. A fellowship meal will be served following
          the program.
  1. The Estabrook School Christmas Program will be December 22, 2012 at 11:00 AM.
Thank you.
