¡Feliz Día de la Independencia Dominicana!
Happy Dominican Independence Day!
February 27 marks the Dominican Republic Independence Day, celebrated annually during Carnival. The Dominican’s cultural identity and creativity are on display throughout this vibrant month. The festivities in the Dominican Republic can be traced back to the 1500s, in the ruins of a town called La Vega, even before it was celebrated in the capital city of Santo Domingo.

Feb is Black History MonthEarlier this month, many of us watched in fascination as NASA sent a rover to the surface of Mars. In honor of this historic mission, we would also like to remember some of the other brilliant minds who have contributed to NASA. If you saw the 2016 movie, "Hidden Figures", then you might already be familiar with the stories of Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan, the NASA workers who did the computer calculations that enabled NASA to send men into space in the 1960s. You can read the biographies of these amazing women here.
Throughout the month, we will be sharing brief facts related to Black History in these eBlasts and posting to the website. We would also love to hear from families about how you are honoring Black History Month. Feel free to email us (email@example.com) or connect with us on slack.
During the month of February, we recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of Black Americans throughout the history of the United States of America. Black History Month (initially "Negro History Week") was founded in 1926 by Carter G. Woodson and gained national recognition in 1976.Parent Association

Parent Teacher Conferences and Half Day
Our Spring Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on March 4th from 12:20 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. All conferences will be by phone or virtual conference. There will be no in-person conferences.
As a result, March 4th will be a half day for all children. Dismissal for K, 1, & 2 will be at 11:00 am, 3, 4, & 5 will be at 11:05 am. Students who usually ride buses will board the bus at this time.
The upcoming Parent Teacher Conference is an important opportunity to meet individually with your child’s teacher to discuss his or her progress. During these unprecedented times, it is critical that we hear from you about how your child is doing and how the school’s supports are working.
The Conference is also an opportunity for educators to provide you with feedback about your child’s academic progress and what you can do to support your child. If your child is having trouble, you and your child’s teacher can figure out an action plan.
Teachers will schedule a meeting time with you by using an online scheduling form or by e-mail. If you are unable to attend a conference during the times above, the teacher will work with you to schedule another time to connect.Parent Association
