Also today we are starting our Kindergarten Tours for new students. If you have school age children and have not yet made an appointment please contact me or the secretary. 

There will be no school this Wednesday, March 6. 

Then on March 12th there will be this month’s PTO meeting for Zoom. For more information please contact the PTO at SaltonstallPTO@gmail.com

On the 15th of this month we will be posting report cards in ASPEN and on the 20th we will be having Parent Conferences and Student Portfolio Conferences. More details to come. 

Also, our Latino Family Group will be starting our meetings. We will be offering two sessions: One on March 13th from 6:00 to 7:30pm (there will be free Dinner from 5:00 to 6:30pm, hosted by the Root organization) and another on March 20th from 9:00 to 10:30am. As your Family Engagement Facilitator and as part of the SPS Heritage, Culture & Pride Committee, I am working to help every family and student to feel part our school community.  If you are of Latino/Hispanic, Black/African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander heritage, or consider yourself a person of color, and are unable to attend any of the meetings, please contact me by email or text message.     

Finally, March 10 will march the start of Ramadan (Sundown March 10-April 10) Ramadan is the Islamic holy month of fasting, prayer, and reflection. During Ramadan, it is customary for Muslims to pray extra nightly prayers and participate in other religious practices throughout the day and night, when possible. They will often wake up for, or stay up until “suhur,” a pre-dawn meal. For each day of Ramadan, fasting consists of abstaining from eating or drinking, including water, while the sun is out. Some scholars may be tired, hungry, and dehydrated by the end of the school day, especially during the late afternoon. As Ramadan is a time of worship, it is better to wish students a Blessed Ramadan, rather than “happy.”
