Sheri’s Weekly Letter 3/9/18

Dear Parents,   We enjoyed another busy week of school and are happy that we made it through the week without the predicted rain! Thanks to the parents who were able to join us last night for information meetings regarding the upcoming 6th and 7th grade overnight field trips. For those unable to attend, we will email trip details before each trip and extra forms have been made available in the office. Any students not attending the overnight trips will be expected to attend school as these are regular school days.   On Wednesday, March 14th we will hold our lottery on campus at 4:00pm. We have around 700 students hoping for 120 spots in our 2018-19 lottery. Although we have shared that attendance is not mandatory to secure a spot, we expect it to be a busy afternoon at The City School. Please be aware of this if you are picking up students or trying to park on Wednesday afternoon.   In other news, I wanted to inform you that our faculty and students will be participating in the National School Walkout on Wednesday, March 14th at 10:00am to honor those killed in the February 14th massacre at the Parkland High School. Ms. Woods’ Advisory organized this walkout by sharing the purpose and logistics of the walkout with all Advisories. Having all the information, students will be able to make a choice as to whether or not they want to participate. Students who choose not to will stay behind with some teachers.   As a constructivist based school that values and promotes student proactivity, we support our students in voicing their thoughts and opinions in a respectful and peaceful manner. We want them to know that they can make a positive difference in their own lives and the lives of others. Parents interested in joining us for the walkout can be at school around 9:50am to get ready to walk with us at 10:am-10:17am.   I would like to once again remind parents to remain involved in your children’s phone use and online activities. I have been recently informed of several incidents of inappropriate internet use, including students creating fake accounts in The City School’s name and posting hurtful comments on Snapchat, in texts, and other online forums. While these activities occur outside of school, they have a tremendous impact on our students in the school environment. I realize that this is a topic I have addressed in weekly emails several times; however I will continue to revisit, as it seems that many of our parents are unaware of what their children are doing and/or saying online and via text.   Lastly, please remember to TURN YOUR CLOCKS AHEAD ONE HOUR this weekend (March 11th) for Daylights Savings Time.   Warmly,   Sheri
