A Message From Ms. Soto
Dear Parents and Students,
The holiday season is upon us once again, and this means many activities will be happening here at Nightingale. Please make sure that you pay close attention to our calendar and newsletter.At Nightingale, one of the many goals that were set last year was to achieve 96% student attendance. In the State of the School meeting that occurred this past Friday, Principal Arias shared our SQRP report and informed all parent attendees and interested stakeholders that Nightingale did meet our 96% student attendance goal for the 2018-2019 school year!!Administration would like to take the time to thank all the parents, students and staff that helped make this goal a reality. Thank you!! We are now faced with the challenge of maintaining our 96% attendance for this 2019-2020 school year. It is important for all to understand that students need to come to school on time every day, however, it is also important to keep in mind that they must remain in school for the full day. Early dismissals do negatively impact your child’s attendance. We need to ensure that our children are in school all day every day. In an effort to maintain our attendance and keep us on the right track of maintaining our 96%attendance goal, for the month of December all students who are in school every day for a ful lday (no early dismissals), Monday through Thursday will be allowed to have an Out of Uniform Day each Friday. Here are the themes for each of the Fridays.Friday December 6th - Pajama Day Friday December 13th - Sports Day Friday December 20th - Holiday Spirit Wear/Christmas Sweater Students who are eligible may follow the theme or just be out of uniform for the day.This is a reminder to all parents/guardians of 8th grade students. The high school application deadline is December 13, 2019. If you need any assistance please stop by and see Mrs. Rohan.
On behalf of everyone here at Nightingale we want to wish you and your family peace and joy this holiday season!
