Inter-Lakes School District

Dear SCS Families:

Happy Halloween! I know I write this too often, but I can’t believe another month is over. I want to thank all the volunteers who supported us during the fair weekend. All in all, ASC collected just over $5000.00. Not bad for a few hours of work! I also want to thank families and faculty for your participation in our bi-annual Parent, Student and Teacher Conferences. The Inter-Lakes School District provides time to make sure that these conferences are productive and well attended. The work that your child does with his/her teacher to prepare is notable. Your participation is appreciated.

Halloween Parade

On Wednesday, October 31, Sandwich Central School will host its annual Halloween Parade. Students are encouraged to bring a costume to school and participate in the event. Each classroom celebrates in their own unique way. Be on the lookout for direct communication from your child’s teacher. Kindergarten students are welcome to stay at SCS for the afternoon. The parade will begin promptly at 1:50 pm. Students and Faculty will walk through town stopping at the Corner House, Town Offices and Sandwich Home Industries Building. We hope to see you there!

Recommendation: We have found it is most comfortable for students to bring their costume and get dressed before the parade. Wearing a costume through the entire school day can be distracting to the student. If your child needs extra support getting their costume together, you are more than welcome to stop by the school at 1:30 pm and help out. Sixth graders have volunteered to help the primary multiage students.


Perception Surveys

             Last week, an email from the Superintendent of Schools, Mary Moriarty, was sent throughout the district. Attached to the email was a letter describing the EFF perception surveys. These surveys will be administered to faculty, students and parents. This is one way that we can get feedback and assess how we are doing in a variety of areas. Please take a moment to complete this survey. We truly value your opinion and will use the results to shape our learning environments. A link to the survey can be found at www.interlakes.org


Winter Clothing

It seems that Mother Nature is giving us a nice early reminder of what is to come. Here is an excerpt from the Sandwich Central School Parent, Student, and Teacher Handbook;

“Please assist your child in making appropriate choices for outdoor recess. Hats, mittens, boots and snow pants are required if students wish to play on the snow. Clothing may not be shared but it is ok to leave extra dry clothes, hats and gloves in lockers. Students without appropriate attire may be limited in their choice of activity, including being restricted to the plowed, paved sections of the playground. Everyone goes outside for recess unless the temperature or wind chill creates a dangerous situation. Factors including humidity and sunshine will be considered, but generally students will be given an option of remaining indoors if the temperature or wind chill falls below zero degrees Fahrenheit.”


Harvest Supper

Mark your calendars on November 16! ASC and SCS are reviving the tradition of a Harvest Supper to celebrate the end of fall, the beginning of winter, and most importantly our amazing school community. Keep your eye out for further details.

Respectfully,

Jeremy Hillger
