Week of 1/7

Good Afternoon Conwell Tigers and Happy 3 Kings Day, “Un Dia de los Reyes”,


I hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous day.   After so much rain, we should be outside today taking in this beautiful afternoon.  We have a few important announcements for the week.


Wednesday, January 9, all are invited to the PTA Family Science Night at 6pm in the cafeteria.  After a brief meeting, children will be engaged in hands-on, discovery based science activites.


There will be JTF rehearsal on Tuesday from 3-5 followed immediately by a mandatory parent meeting for children who will be attending the festival.  In addition there will be rehearsal on Wednesday and Thursday from 3-6.


Conwell Cubz will resume on Thursday, January 17.  There will not be Cubz rehearsal this week.


Engineering Club Group A will meet on Friday until 3:45 pm.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Conwell Tiger Staffulty, parents, and entire student body for all of your support through 2018.   I believe, as a school community, we are poised to excel beyond all expectations in 2019. Our community has been faced with some very difficult challenges over the years and I am truly humbled how we come together in the face of adversity to tackle and overcome these challenges.  Most importantly I am so appreciative of the full support that has been given in such a short period of time for my career endeavor of building a community of Respect, Appreciation, Care, and Empathy. It is amazing to see how powerful it can be when we all put forth effort towards a common goal.  Our children really get it!!!


Be Nice, Be Kind, and Be Respectful
