Principal's Message

 

January 26, 2023

Canal View Families,

I wanted to send my weekly communication to you today instead of Friday to remind you that tomorrow, Friday, January 27 is a half day for all students UPK - 12. 

January 27 Half Day

While breakfast will remain available as normal, students will not be served lunch and they will not have specials. 

With respect to dismissal, those who are being picked up will be called down to the cafeteria beginning at 11:40 am, and those taking the bus will be dismissed shortly after with buses rolling away from the building and on their way home at 12:00 pm.  If you are planning on picking up your child on this half-day, please send in a note ahead of time so that we can prepare for the busiest dismissal of the year, and we will open our doors to have you sign your child out at 11:30 am.  

Our pre-k students will follow their regular dismissal routine, where designated pick-up persons can pick students up at 11:20 am. 

Instructionally, our entire staff will be working together on the morning of January 27 to provide students with learning experiences aligned to our common district and building goal of Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Education (CRSE).  While each grade level will be using developmentally appropriate texts supported by dialogue and activities, all students will be engaging in a common identity activity to celebrate what makes each of us special and unique. We are looking forward to a wonderful morning together.

Valentine’s Day

While I hope this upcoming holiday provides our students with an experience to exchange cards and kindnesses, a naturally sweet holiday doesn’t need anything extra!  In all sincerity, I want to thank you in advance for remembering that in support of allergy awareness, Spencerport’s elementary schools utilize food-free celebrations for all holidays and birthdays.  If you happen to miss this note and purchase Valentines for your student that contain candy, the cards would make their way to classmates but the candy will be collected and returned home.  Thank you for sharing in our commitment to keep all students safe and healthy. 

Special Olympics Fundraising

Thank you so much for supporting our coin wars this week! We will report back with our total efforts soon! Remember that tomorrow is the last day to bring coins. Thank you!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone.

Warmly,

Denise Lemcke Principal
