Book Swap!

May, 2017
 
Dear Edgartown Parents,
We all know how important it is to keep reading over the summer. Here at the Edgartown School we have planned to make it even easier and more fun to keep reading all summer!
 
We will be having a book swap at our school on June 6th, 7th and 8th. This is just in time to pick up some great new reads for the summer, and trade in some books that your children have already enjoyed and want to pass on to others. We are asking if you would like to participate in the swap, that you please bring in no more than 3-4 gently used books per student and take as many as you brought. We don’t want to end up with extra books to get rid of at the end of the swap, but would like to make this a fun opportunity for students to share books with their friends and pick up some books for the summer. Look for the swap in the school library and in the hall just in front of the library.
 
Shortly, we will be sending home more ideas for summer reading programs and books to read.
 
Happy Reading!
The Edgartown K-3 Team

School Improvement Plan Update

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Edgartown School Community,
 
On April 12, the School Advisory Council (SAC) completed the latest draft of next year's School Improvement Plan (SIP) for 2016-2017.  It is in the file cabinet on the SAC web page. The goal is to create a plan that captures the best thinking of a wide range of school employees, parents, community members, students, and business people in our community.  The SAC invites you to look this plan over and suggest any additions, deletions or corrections as SAC members want to capture the school community's concept of what the SIP should look like for next year.  The SAC will meet again on May 10 to make final adjustments to this document which will be presented to the Supt. and School Committee in June for their approval.  If you could forward any input to Kate McCormick (kmccormick@mvyps.org) prior to May 10 it would be most appreciated. Should you have any questions about this document or the related process Kate and I would be happy to answer them. 
 
Thank you,  
John Stevens
