 walk for education

Dear Parents,

    I must begin with a HUGE THANK YOUR FOR YOUR AMAZING GENEROSITY DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER.  First of all, we met our PTS fundraising goal, so your children can look forward to field trips and many other wonderful activities planned by our dedicated PTS.  And please remember, just by being a parent or guardian of our students, you are automatically a member of PTS.  So please feel welcome to participate in any and all of their wonderful meetings and events.  Secondly, I can’t thank you enough for showing your generosity through our PENNY WARS FOR HURRICANE VICTIMS.  I am so excited to be donating $3000.00 for many needy families and communities.  Once again, you have shown that West Point families CARE.

    Now, a big THANK YOU TO EMILY KOCHIS and her committee for planning and organizing such a fun WALK FOR EDUCATION for our students.  The weather cooperated and it was a wonderful day.

    We are already set for an exciting month of October with many events already in the works:  Donuts for Dad, Bus Driver appreciation, Hero Lunch, Bounce House days, Bricks for Kids, ending with our Harvest Parade.  Please consider attending our first District Community Forum, Oct. 5th, at 7:00 in the High School mini-theater, led by Dr. Wolicki.  Together we are stronger, and it is wonderful that she is leading a new approach in working together and sharing concerns and ideas.  I hope to see you there.

    I will be spending some time with students going over Bus Safety rules during lunch periods.  October 16-20 is National Bus Safety month, and we need to make sure students understand the responsibility of bus drivers in getting children home safely.  Please reinforce this at home.  I assign seats and change them as needed.  But, students have to adhere to rules to ensure the safety of all students.

    As always, please let me know of any concerns.  My door is always open and I do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible.  Thanks for being a “key” component of West Point’s amazing team.


Most sincerely,

Mrs. Dell
