Family Update - Friday, December 10th

Happy Friday O’Dea Core Knowledge Elementary families!  It has been a super fun week at school and the energy for the holiday season seems to be growing.  It is always such a gift to be able to be around children during this time of year.  They help us see the magic and remind us of what it is like to see the world through the eyes of a child.  I feel pretty lucky.

We will be wrapping up next with some middle of the year assessments as well as our Talent Show…and Pajama Drive.  We will continue to collect pajamas through Wednesday, December 15th. Thank you to everyone who has already donated pajamas…and submitted their videos for the Talent Show. It is always such a fun time of year!

It is hard to believe that Kindergarten Registration is upon us when we return in January.  If you have an incoming kindergartner for next year…please check out our website for registration information and timelines as well information about our Kindergarten Orientation Night that we will be hosting on Thursday, January 13th

Our grading period will also be wrapping up when we return, and you can expect to see a report card for your child mid-January.  As always…if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress in school…please reach out…we are here to help.

Thank you for your continued support…generosity…kind words…and the positive energy that you bring to our school community.  We are so thankful to be a part of this little microcosm of goodness…it just feels good.

Happy holiday seasoning,
