Dear Country Club Families,
Having been an elementary teacher for several years, I have had the pleasure of participating in a number of Halloween parades. However, in spite of this experience, I was absolutely blown away at the sense of community the Country Club Halloween parade brings! Not only were neighbors lining the streets to enjoy the sights, but there were also countless parents marching along with us to keep our students safe. Thank you so very much for making such a wonderful tradition a reality. I’ve already started planning my costume for next year! It will be difficult to live up to the standard Lucy and Ethel set!
I am happy to announce some additions and changes to our Country Club staff. Korby Saunders, 5th grade teacher, has been selected to serve as a Teacher on Special Assignment two days a week. Her focus will be on coaching and professional development for teachers and helping manage our intervention program to meet the needs of all our students. Cynthia Ewy will be joining the 5th grade team as Mrs. Saunder’s job share partner right before Thanksgiving break.
Leslie Anderson has been hired as our Barton program coordinator, and Jennifer Giaramita will joining the team as the art instructor for TK and 3rd-5th grades.
This month brings the brisk fall air and some much needed breaks for staff and students. Between Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving week, I hope everyone is able to rest and spend time with loved ones. I hope to see everyone at movie night on November 14th at 6:30pm in the MPR!
