Dear Parents,
Thank you for attending last Friday’s Meet the Teacher Night event. It was good to have you with us. For those of you who missed my presentation, here it is again with speaker notes included (SBE VISION 2017-18). We’ll be sharing some resources with you in the coming weeks to continue to support your understanding of standards-based education (SBE).

This week our entire elementary middle school student body will have a daily focus on digital citizenship. We are using the acronym T.H.I.N.K. to emphasize the importance of leaving an inspiring, helpful and kind footprint on the web. A great way of partnering with us is to ask your child at the end of each day what they have learned. Please know that we’re also praying for each student this week in the hope that these lessons will shape and guide their hearts.

I am pleased to announce that the following stellar parents will serve on the EMS PAC this year:

  • Mrs. Judy Chen (PR liaison)
  • Mrs. Chun-Miao Lin
  • Mrs. Angela Lin
  • Mrs. Missy Basnett
  • Mrs. Rachel Sawatzky
  • Mr. John Carraccio
  • Mr. Hendrik Frijling
  • Mr. Allen Messimer
  • Mr. Stephen Calmes

They are eager to listen and hear from you. Have a great first week of September.

Respectfully,
Mr. Myburgh
