Letter From the Principal: October 2018

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe that we turn the calendar to November just next week. As we wrap up the eighth week of school, students have settled into their classrooms and teachers are making the most of each day they have with children. We are excited by the possibilities for academic and social gains for each of our students this year.

Letter from the PTO President

Hi everyone,

We are off to a good start! The Picnic turnout was great and it was awesome to see so many families!

Our next PTO activity will be the Mystery Dinner on October 20th. This is a fun and kid-free event where you get to meet other parents while eating good food. We are still looking for hosts. If you are interested, please contact Carolyn Gillespie.

Also, for the first time, we are teaming up with the West Suburban YMCA for an Underwood Kids Night Out, which is a fun and low-cost alternative to hiring a babysitter. Lest just say my kids are pretty excited about it!

Our first PTO meeting will be held on October 16th at 8:30 AM in Room 1.  We encourage all to come to learn about what we’re up to and how you can get involved with the Underwood PTO. There are many opportunities to fit your availability, whether you work in or out of the home. It’s a great way to meet other Underwood parents and caregivers while supporting our school. Your involvement is the key to the PTO success!

Please, continue to be on the lookout in your Inbox for our newsletters out every 3–4 weeks, and notifications more frequently.

Warmly,
Anne-Marie Gravel
PTO President

Letter From Principal Smith: Welcome Back, Fall 2018

Dear Underwood Families,

I hope you had a wonderful summer. The change of pace that summer brings often allows time for relaxation and fun, and I hope all of our families found time for both. As September approaches, I expect many children are ready to return to school. The beginning of a new school year is always filled with energy, excitement, and optimism. This year is no exception, and we look forward to welcoming students back in the coming weeks. Continue reading “Letter From Principal Smith: Welcome Back, Fall 2018”
