A Message from Principal Walker
Dear Mt. Spurr Families,
It was great to see so many of you at Mt. Spurr during our conference week. Encouragement and support from parents and families are some of the most important factors in student success. As we move into the second quarter, please continue to work closely and communicate often with your child's teacher in supporting their academic and social-emotional goals and overall experience at Mt. Spurr.
One of our primary goals this year is for our students to attend school every day. A missed day of school is a missed learning opportunity. Thank you in advance for ensuring school attendance is a priority. Please plan appointments and trips outside of the school day and during school vacation times whenever possible. We miss our students when they are not at school!
Please let us know if you have any questions.
When dropping off and picking up children, please be sure you use the designated locations. Kindergarten should be dropped off and picked up from the back parking lot off of 18th Street, while all other grades should use the playground exits off of 17th Street. Do not forget there is no supervision until 9:00 a.m. and after 3:45 p.m. Children should not be on the premises without supervision or special permission obtained via the office or for a special circumstance. Your cooperation with this matter is greatly appreciated.
As technology grows, make sure you are aware of who and what your child is involved in online and over the phone. Make sure they understand the consequences of posting on line. Posts can never be truly deleted. Be sure to monitor what your child is doing and whether or not it is appropriate and kind. While texting and posting online is convenient, it is often misinterpreted and can lead to bullying. Use the THINK program to determine whether it is appropriate.
