Dear Horbelt Parents:
As we move into March, the Horbelt School teachers and students in grades 3, 4, and 5 continue to prepare for the upcoming ASK tests which will take place in May.
The PTA will be holding Spring Picture Day and the 5th Grade Picture on March 19. Information about this will be coming home shortly with your child.
Please remember that as we approach the beginning of the Spring season, the temperatures can vary greatly during the day. With this thought, please remember to have your children bring a jacket with them to school in the morning so they are able to enjoy their recess period outside.
As you know we have undertaken a literacy campaign this year. Students are doing more writing activities across the grades; of course, you know about the Battle of the Books. Right now students at Horbelt have read over 400,000 minutes! We get closer to that million minute mark! Along with the Science Fair sponsored by the PTA, we also saw the return of Family Science Night. Thank you Mrs. Goddard for this, and thank you Mrs. Polo for all your hard work; it was a successful venture.
If your child is missing a jacket, hat, gloves or sweatshirt, they may be in our lost and found table. The table is located across from the gym and you are welcome to come in to look for the missing item. If your child has lost a pair of eyeglasses, they may be in our nurse’s office. You may have your child go to the nurse’s office to check the eyeglasses that are there, or you are welcome to come in to look at them.
Below are listed upcoming events for the month of March:
March 8 PTA Dessert with Dad, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
