PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEYS~
Look for parent satisfaction surveys in today’s Thursday folder. Please return them as soon as possible. We will be awarding the class with the highest number of returned surveys with a pizza party. One party for primary and one party for intermediate. We realize that some students only have their older siblings required to turn in a survey and we will consider those when awarding the pizza parties. Know that all surveys remain confidential. Mr. Val will be using a scanner to keep data on how many surveys per class are returned, not per student.
SAVE THE DATES ~ Lowry Carnival May 19th 4-7 pm in the sports field on school grounds.
