Dear Einstein Community,
We had a fabulous last day today! Our extraordinary data was shared with the students and they actually gasped when they saw the improvements from last year! We hope the send-off we gave our 6th graders gave them a lasting good memory. We have so much to be proud of and thankful for at Einstein School.
As this school year comes to an end, we have already begun planning for next year. Thank you for the feedback that you have given the school in regards to what type of learning environment you feel that your child will thrive in next year. A great deal of time and energy is put into creating class lists. Our primary goal is to make sure that each classroom is balanced. This means that each class should have an equal amount of boys and girls along with a combination of students who achieve at all different academic levels. Class lists will be posted on Information Day, August 8that Einstein School. The hours that day will be 9:00 AM to noon and 6:00-8:00 PM. Reminders will be sent as the date gets closer. I am pleased to announce the tentative teaching assignments for the 2012/2013 school year as follows:

Traits Writing was adopted by the Board of Education in December of this school year. Our classrooms have been using Traits Writing for the past couple of months as part of our Balanced Literacy Model. While the Traits Writing Student Handbooks were not entirely completed this school year, students can continue to work on their writing skills by utilizing the incomplete pages in their handbooks during the summer months. The teachers have given each of our Einstein students their handbook to use in the summer. Please encourage your child to take advantage of this summer writing resource.
Summer Office Hours
7:30AM – 3:30PM until Friday, June 7th.
Secretaries will return and be available on August 5th and keep similar hours except on Information Day, Thursday, August 8th. More information coming as the date gets closer.
Included in each report card, please find supply lists and summer reading lists. We are counting on parent support to sharpen the skills that have been acquired, and to support those that are still developing but need to be in place for maximum success. We know you send us the best students and we depend on your support all year, including the summer!
Summer Wishes and Reminders
On behalf of the Einstein staff, please have a safe and happy summer. It is truly a privilege to work with each of your children. A great staff, wonderful children and very supportive parents have made a winning combination. Thank you for your trust and goodwill this past year.
LEARNING NEVER TAKES A VACATION! Reading is the key to all we do at school. Our fantastic public library, Barnes and Noble and Scholastic Books have wonderful resources for all of us to continue to read over the summer. Read! Read! Read!
