Dear Ararat Charter School Families,
I hope everyone had a safe and relaxing spring break. When the students and staff return, we will hit the ground running and pick up where we left off before spring break. The final stretch of school will include our CST testing for grades 2-5, which will be given May 06-27, 2013.
Thank you to those parents who completed the parent survey for our school. We will report the input received on the surveys as soon as they are made available. Administrators and teachers everywhere recognize the important contributions that parents make toward a child’s success in school. One of the most important components of a good school is the partnership between the school and parents. This Partnership helps ensure student academic success.
Ararat Charter School will be hosting our first Walk-a-Thon. You still have a chance to participate! Participants will leave from Campus 2 at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2013 and walk to Campus 1. Councilman Paul Krekorian is scheduled to give a kick-off speech. All families and friends can help the school by donating to this great cause.
Parent conferences for trimester 2 were just completed. I want you to know that helping our children set realistic and challenging goals for themselves gives students a feeling of pride and triumph when each goal is attained, and sets the stage for attaining the next goal ahead. To ensure that students are well prepared for school, healthy habits and consistent routines are strongly encouraged.
