April's Note from the Principal

April Flowers

What is the saying…April showers brings May flowers? Well, I hope that the rainy, cloudy days of March will bring us some sunshine and warmer weather in April. Something else that I look forward to in the month of April is some great classroom instruction! We are just a few short weeks away from our spring benchmarks. It is our expectation, as a school, that these benchmarks will show us how much your child has grown in both reading and math. However, we know that we are not solely responsible for any gains your child may achieve. As far as reading is concerned, multiple studies show the tremendous beneficial effects that occur when you, the parents, read to your children at home . All this to say thank you to all the parents who read with your kids on a regular basis. Giving the gift of reading to a child is one of the greatest gifts that can ever be given.

I would like to let our second-grade parents know about a special evening at Battlefield Elementary. Please mark your calendars for April 16th @ 5 p.m. when there will be a special night for BPS students who will be going to 3rd grade next school year. This will be a time for you and your child(ren) to get acquainted with the faculty and staff of BES. If you are able to go that night, then next school year may not be that intimidating for your child.

Finally, please join me in supporting Battlefield Elementary as they will soon be taking the Georgia Milestones assessment. As you know, the state of Georgia will use the scores that BES earns and will apply them to our school as a way of measuring us. Needless to say, we have a vested interest in how they perform!
