September 25, 2022 Weekly STAR Family Updates
Good afternoon STAR Families. This is Mrs. Traumuller, the Morehead Principal, with the updates and reminders for the week ahead!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Last week was so busy and filled with fun! We could not have done this without the support of our Morehead Community! We conquered mandatory safety drills, Skate Night joined with Curriculum Night, our first Out of the Garden Food pantry give away, AND our first Fun Friday Vote which ended with CRAZY HAIR!
This week our students will take an assessment independently with both reading and math. The only exceptions will be that kindergarten through third grade students will not take the reading as they have already taken the statewide DIBELS testing. This test gives us the various levels of all students and helps us better target where to support and push each student individually. This is not a long assessment, but one that requires student devices and concentration.
Kindergarten families - September 29th is the deadline for the mandatory forms to be submitted. As a reminder, we must have on file your NC Health Assessment as well as your vaccination records prior to the deadline given to us by the state.
Have you registered for the fall GO FAR Race yet? The Fall GO FAR Race will be held in High Point on November 12th at 9:00 AM. Registration for the race has already begun with the early bird registration fee being a total of $25 per racer. The early bird registration ends, and the price will increase after October 8th. If you would like to participate in this community event, please register and join the Morehead team on the GO FAR website at gofarclub.org. Please reach out to Mr. Kight with any questions.
Message from Morehead PTA:
Thank you to 11 Stars on the Run Sponsors who have helped us reach 5k in sponsorship funding! We are off to a great start. However, to ensure we can purchase the new digital sign and maintain all the PTA budget line items, we still need to raise 6k. The deadline is October 7th! Please share the star sponsor form with families, businesses and community members who may be interested in sponsoring our PTA!
PTA International Night is October 6th at Westover Church gym. We are excited to note that we have Sudan, Algeria, Morocco, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Ghana, Mexico, El Salvador, France, Italy, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Venezuela, and Argentina planning on hosting a table and sharing food samples! And big shout out to Sudan and Morocco who have several families coming together to host! Still time to sign up with the Jotform link or find it located on the Morehead website.
That is all that I have for you today. We look forward to seeing all of our STARS tomorrow morning, beginning at 7:20 am. Have a great evening.
