Message from Montague's Principal, Dr. Lorrie Wernick
The 2013-14 school year has begun. We have many new faces on our staff, but there is so much positive energy and we are all excited to be part of the Montague family. The teachers are all working hard to find out where each student is in his/her learning and how best to help each and everyone this year. As a staff, we will be looking at data and student work to understand better how each student learns. We will look at where students are proficient and where they have challenges and we will plan for each student to be successful and have a great school year.
Parents are a very important part of the team in working with our students to be a success. Please join the PTSA if you haven't already done so. The membership for the year is $7.00. Information on joining is on the marque board in the front of the school. Also, we still need members on our School Site Council and our English Language Learner Committee. We only meet three or four times a year, but the work we do is important for the school and the students. If you are interested, please e-mail me with your phone number at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will call you to tell you more about the positions.
Our fall parent conferences will be on October 1st, 2nd ,3rd ,and 4th. Those will be minimum days. We will do our best to schedule children in a family on the same day for conferences. It is important to attend conferences as that is the time when you and your child's teacher can plan together for your child.
There will be no school for students on Monday, September 23rd. It is a Staff Development Day for teachers.
I want to remind everyone to drive very slowly and carefully in the parking lot and in front of the school when children are coming and leaving. Children don't always watch out for cars, so we have to take extra care and watch out for them. When you drop off or pick up children, don't stop for more than a few seconds for children to get in and out of the car. There is always a line of traffic behind you. When you leave the parking lot, be sure to only turn right. If you turn left, it interferes with the line of traffic that is trying to drop off or pick up. And remember, students should not be dropped off until 8:15 as there is no supervision before then. They should be picked up promptly after school, as again, there is not supervision or a place to wait. Thank you for helping to keep all the children safe.
At any time, if you have questions, concerns, or ideas to share about Montague School, please call me or set up an appointment to meet.
Dr. Lorrie Wernick, Principal
