2014 Parent Visitation Day
Dear Roundtown Families,
You are cordially invited to attend our annual Roundtown Parent Visitation Day to be held on Thursday, October 9, 2014. From 10:00-2:30, parents are invited and encouraged to spend about an hour in their child's classroom to see what their learning experience entails. Please check for a schedule or rough outline either through newsletter or teacher website of the day's activities from your child's teacher so you can best plan your visit. We ask that preschoolers NOT visit the classroom that day. PTO has graciously set-up a two-way babysitting service in The Rally Room that day. If you use the service for an hour, we ask that you return the favor so other parents can visit their child's classroom. You may check our Roundtown website for a link to sign up for babysitting services. Families may NOT be in the cafeteria or on our Roundtown Playground on visitation day. We also respectively ask that you refrain from using video devices in the classroom and please silence your cell phone to minimize disruption. Thanks for your advanced cooperation!
During this time of giving thanks, we can all be thankful for our beautiful school, fabulous teachers and staff, and of course, our Roundtown PROUD Students. I am also thankful for the families of Roundtown and look forward to seeing you all on Parent Visitation Day and at one of our two Parent Conference Days scheduled November 25-26. I hope you will take the time to celebrate our school by joining us for both of these parent involvement opportunities. Your support of the school's/district's mission of providing opportunities for ALL students to strive to meet their full potential is a key ingredient in your child's success!
