Upcoming reunion highlights legacy of local school
By CLAUDE VINSON
This week beginning on Friday, the third of September, the planning which has been going on for months will culminate in the eighth Grand Reunion for the St. Mary’s/CADET/ Holy Family School on West Street.
The principal, Clara Isom, has been working with the reunion committee, headed by Willie Mallory, to make the event classically welcoming to the former students, teachers, family and friends on the return to “their school.”
HS Primary School hosts Back to School Night
Holly Springs Primary School held their Back to School Night on Thursday, August 19, in the activity building. Principal Joseph Stone welcomed all parents and guests.
Stone discussed the district uniform dress code. He also informed parents about attendance policies and procedures. He informed parents as to where these policies could be found in the HSSD Parent-Student Handbook.
Dinah Kay Lundine, instructional coach, discussed the goal of federal programs, which is to help every child attain a high-quality education.
Parents were shown the school-parent compacts that must be signed each year, as an agreement between home and school as to the responsibilities of each party in the learning process.
Parents were extended an invitation to join the Federal Programs Committee at the primary school.
Mamie Byers, parent liaison, talked about parent involvement and the Parent Center, inviting all parents to take advantage of this valuable resource for their children.
Lorena Adams, school nurse, discussed the health initiative along with other health related activities that will take place this school year. She also invited parents and students to visit a booth set up in the hallway promoting healthy snacks.
Mrs. Bell and Ms. Turner’s first grade class, with the help of Nurse Adams and the music teacher, Mrs. Jenkins, performed the song, “Cookin’ Up Healthy.”
Stone introduced the 2010-2011 primary school staff before parents were dismissed to grade level meetings and classroom visits to meet their children’s teachers.
In these meetings, the parents received the 2010-2012 Parent-Student Handbook and the school-parent compacts. Teachers discussed the handbooks, compacts, school and classroom rules, promotion/retention, Essential Learning Objectives (ELOs), grading policy, reading requirement, honor roll and homework.
Refreshments were served in the cafeteria after classroom visits.
The Holly Springs Primary School would like to thank all the parents for their attendance and involvement in their children’s education.
