Education Week celebration began when the National Education Association
became upset that 25 percent of the country's World War I draftees were
illiterate and 29 percent were physically unfit. As a resolution to this
problem an educational week would be observed to inform "the public of
the accomplishments and needs of the public schools and secure the
cooperation and support of the public in meeting those needs."
We are including
Family Engagement activities this week. Family Engagement activities are
an important part of our school's success. An activity may be planned in
each classroom during the week. Your child's teacher will be
sending additional information soon.
Parents are invited to eat in the cafeteria with their child/children
