Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

January/February 2020 Newsletter

Hello Chris Akkerman Families!
Hard to believe that it is the year 2020! The time never stops flying by and we are excited about the great opportunities that await us over the next six months. We hope that everyone had a safe and memorable holiday spent with friends and family and that our students were able to get some rest. It is great to see their faces back at school!
January and February are going to be very busy months for us. Our Open House is on January 9 at 7:00 pm. This is an opportunity for families interested in TLC to come and get some information to see if their child would be successful in this program. If your child is currently attending Chris Akkerman, you do not need to attend the Open House. It is for new, interested families only. Registration begins on January 20 and ends on February 11 at noon. We are following the lottery process and all families will be informed regarding acceptance by March 3, 2020. Those families that are not accepted will be placed on the waitlist and may be contacted throughout the year.

Report cards are being sent home on January 30. Teachers are spending countless hours on these important documents to provide you with a clear picture of where your child is as a learner. Please send the envelopes back to the school with your child on February 3. If you have any questions about the report card after it is received, please contact the teacher.
We have some great field trips and other activities coming up within the next two months. Please refer to your master calendar with important dates. We will be completing our gymnastics unit and will continue to have virtue assemblies on the last Friday of each month. The virtue for January is commitment and for February it is compassion. We are also continuing with fun lunch on the 2nd Thursday of each lunch. Please remember that the purpose of these fun lunches is to raise money in order to provide deeper and richer learning experiences for our students. If you or your child chooses to not participate in the fun lunch, please just send them with a regular lunch and we’d ask you to not bring in fast food.
Parents often ask how they can support their child with learning and the best response is to always find time to read with them. Exposing them to many different types of literature and having conversations about what they read will always be beneficial for all students. Thank you for your support with this and with your child’s nightly homework. One of the best ways to help support the school is to attend and participate in our School Council Meetings. These fall on the last Monday of the month at 6:30 pm in our Learning Commons. Please come and join us.
Thank you again for all of your support and we look forward to a great 2020 together.
