Dear Masters Families, February 11, 2016
We had a great turnout at the Pancake Man and Book Fair! We were able to give away over $667 in free books to our students during the “Book Walk”.
Fundraisers were sent home today!!! Please keep in mind that these fundraisers are essential for the success of the PTO. We provide for special events, holiday parties, field trips, 5th & 6th grade dance/graduation, and many other activities at school. Unfortunately, last year we were unable to provide for some programs at school including end of the year teacher meal, field trips and field day t-shirts for every student due to the low participation with our fundraisers. Please consider being involved this year, if you do not wish to be a part of the fundraiser but want to help, we always accept donations in any amount. We realize many of you participate in all of our fundraisers and we recognize and appreciate your continued support.

Sleep is a vital need, essential to a child’s health and growth. Sleep promotes alertness, memory and performance. Children who get enough sleep are more likely to function better and are less prone to behavioral problems and moodiness. That is why it is important for parents to start early and help their children develop good sleep habits. How much sleep should my child get? Each child is different and has different sleep needs. It is recommended that elementary students get 10-11 hours of sleep each day. The best tip for establishing good sleeping habits is to follow a consistent bedtime routine. Regular bedtime habits encourage your student to relax, fall asleep, and sleep throughout the night. Although a family’s evening schedule may fluctuate with different activities, try to make bedtime consistent. Avoid TV prior to bedtime as recent studies have suggested watching TV before bed can lead to difficulties falling asleep and staying asleep. Instead of TV, consider reading before bed to promote leisure reading and relaxation. For additional information, please contact your school psychologist or go to www.sleepforkids.org.
FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Masters School will hold Parent / Teacher conferences on Wednesday, February 24th from 4:15 to 8:15 p.m. and Thursday, February 25th from 1:00 to 7:30 p.m. Parent / Teacher conferences give you and the teacher an opportunity to discuss your child’s progress, strengths, and areas that may need to continue to work on. Our goal is 100% participation from our Parents. Teachers will send home reminders of your students’ conference time. Please contact your students’ teacher if you need to schedule a special time for conferences. All classes with 100% parent attendance will earn a reading party with popcorn! Thank you in advance to every parent for your participation in this continued partnership of educating our youth.
Congratulations to all of our fourth graders for their hard work and completing the State Writing test (NESA-W). The lost and found is over flowing and will be emptied. Please stop by and check for any items your child may be missing.
Please feel free to e-mail your comments, suggestions, or questions to email@example.com I welcome your input.
