Is it November? Wow, how quickly time passes. November is a time when we like to express our thanks. I would like to start by saying Thank You to our wonderful students and staff. I want to express my gratitude for your commitment to ABES. I truly believe that you all are “doing whatever it takes to make the days great”. I would like to thank our PTO for heading up all of the school events that they take on. This group has worked extremely hard, long hours turning our school into the outstanding place you now see. I am very thankful to be a part of such a wonderful school family.
Parent-Teacher Conferences are being held during the week of Nov. 3-7. As we are preparing for report cards and parent conferences, I would like to remind you of the recipe for academic success. Remember, if one ingredient is left out, the results will not be the same.
1 student willing to try
1 or 2 qualified, committed teachers
1 or 2 involved parents or grandparents
A gallon of good attitude (the more, the better)
A healthy commitment to being present in school each day
A dash of interesting learning
Incentives devised by the teacher or school
Sprinkle liberally with praise
Mix all together and allow to age. Be sure to adjust seasonings as needed. Monitored closely and stirred with love, the results will be a happy and academically successful child.
Thank you for demonstrating to your child through your words and actions the importance of an education and your support of the teachers and this school! Thank you for getting involved in your child’s education. Taking the time to read to or listen to your child read, review math facts, prepare for test, give assistance on projects, look over papers, etc. has a great impact on your child’s success in school. Thank you for your time. Thank you for sending your child to school everyday. Thank you for recognizing that we are human, and we sometimes make mistakes.
We are blessed in so many ways here at Anthony Burns. Thank you to every member of our Dragon family for the role you play.
