Weekly ConnectED Message

  • We hope that you have had a restful and enjoyable weekend. Happy Mother Day to all the moms, stepmoms, grand moms, aunts and women in our lives who raise us up and love us conditionally. And for those women no longer with us and the ones they left behind, we hold you close in our thoughts on this day.

    On behalf of all the teachers and staff we would like to express our warmest gratitude for all acts of kindness and appreciation shown by the Erwin PTA and individual families during Teacher Appreciation Week. The greatest gift of all is the growth that we see each day for each of our Erwin students. It is an honor and brings us great joy.

    On Monday May 9 Prek-2 students will participate in field day. Tuesday May 10th 3-5 will have their field day fun. Teachers have sent field day information via Dojo, however, here are some reminders to ensure we have a safe great day of fun.

    1.    Please remember that students need to dress in loose fitting athletic attire with tennis shoes or close-toe outdoor shoes with a strap.

    2.    Students have been asked to wear colors by grade level PRE K-Kindergarten wear ORANGE, First Grade wear YELLOW and Second Grade wear RED. Third grade wear GREEN, Fourth Grade wear PURPLE, and Fifth Grade wear BLUE.

    3.    Students will have several water stations (including a water slide) and may need a change of clothes if they are not dry by the time they return to the classroom at noon.

    4.       Students should also bring a towel  and a bag lunch if they do not want the bag lunch from the cafeteria.

    5.    If you have signed up to be a volunteer, please be sure to check in at the volunteer table at the front of the school upon arrival. There you revive information on which station you have been assigned and the shift to which you are assigned.

    As a reminder early voting for our local government has begun and will end on May 14th and election day is May 17th. There are many opportunities that can happen as a result of this year’s election please do your part and use your voice by voting.

    Also, there is still time to put in your nomination for the Erwin PTA Board all seats are open. The nomination form along with a description of duties has been posted to Dojo. If you have additional question, please email erwinmotessoripta@gmail.com

    As always, we thank you for all you do to support Erwin Montessori and we hope you have an amazing week.
