Hello Greenwood Parents,
I’d like to welcome everyone to a new school year. As you know, we are starting school this Monday, August 29. I’d like to take a moment to tell you about the first week of school and a few coming events.
On Monday, our doors will open at 8:30 and students are welcome to eat breakfast and wait in the gym for school to begin. At 8:50 we will open the hallway doors. At this time, parents and students may find their classroom, and parents will be welcome to stay for a few minutes, meet the teacher, and make sure students are settled in. There will be no morning assembly the first week of school.
On Friday, September 2, parents are welcome to join us at the field at 1:00 for our annual Giant Spirit Parade. We ask that families coming to watch wait along the fence by the play area next to Spruce Street so that teachers can more easily keep track of their students during the event.
We have a PTS meeting in the Library at 6:00 on Tuesday, September 6.
And our Open House this year is on Thursday, September 15. More info to come.
On a school security note, parents visiting the school during school hours will be asked to buzz in at the front doors and check in at the office for all visits. We open the main doors for student pickup at 2:23 pm each day. This gives parents the opportunity to either wait in the lobby for the last two minutes or walk down and wait quietly outside teachers’ doors. Dismissal is at 2:25. All classes this year will dismiss from the classroom, including Kindergarten and 1st grade. Please talk to your child’s teacher if you have more questions about picking up your child.
Ryan Westenskow, Principal
