STAR Parent Summer Updates August 7th

August 7, 2022 Weekly STAR Summer Updates

Good afternoon STAR Families. This is Mrs. Traumuller, the Morehead Principal, with the updates and reminders for the weeks ahead! All of the items listed below are linked in the message, but also on our website main picture slide show for easy access.

Open House is August 24th, from 5:00 - 7:30 pm. This is a chance for you to walk your child through the school and meet their teacher. Scheduling a conference to sit down with the teacher is something that you can request, however, please remember, Open House is for all parents to meet their child's teacher. During this night, we will have our PTA available, school resources for family who need support, as well as transportation representatives to help you get all of your questions answered. To help with the ease of parking and traffic flow in the building, we are going to divide the night into time slots based upon your last name.

5:00 - 5:30 Students with last names A - G
5:30 - 6:00 Students with last names H - N
6:00 - 6:30 Students with last names O - T
6:30 - 7:00 Students with last names U - Z
7:00 - 7:30 Students who could not make their alpha time slot.

We would like to take a minute to thank Mrs. Morgan, our previous PTA President. She has served our school for two years and has truly worked to make Morehead a great place for all students, staff, and families. Until the next PTA meeting, Mrs. Fowler, has stepped into the role as the interim President. We look forward to where our school will go in the upcoming school year. If you are interested in joining our PTA, you can easily find ALL of our information on our school website under "Parents".

Our PTA would like to invite all of our families to come to the school this Saturday for a campus clean up. Please sign up for campus clean up. It will be August 13th at 8am -12pm. Bring garden gloves and garden tools. You do not have to stay the whole time. If you have any questions get in touch with Vicky Fowler- fowlerv@gcsnc.com, Rachel Tuggle- betty4281@gmail.com or GwenAnnese- gsannese@gmail.com

Guilford County Schools has done an amazing job of having an all inclusive information page linked on all websites. It answers all parents questions and is a one stop shop for all of the back to school information for the district. It is linked on our school website but also HERE for your convenience.

My last announcement is unfortunately not a happy piece of information. Our STAR family has lost one of its members. Our STAR, Anna Grisolia, passed away this past Friday. While at Morehead, she served as an Instructional Assistant and most recently, our school Treasurer. I know that many of you had the opportunity to meet and work with Anna. She was truly an amazing spirit and our school family will certainly miss her as we enter the new school year.

That is all that I have for you today. We hope that you are enjoying your summer and cannot wait to meet you all face to face for the start of what is certain to be a great school year! Have a great night.
