Good morning, my friends. Don’t worry, be happy!
As always I was very happy to receive the Solon School newsletter. The Principal’s Message states: “The Solon staff and I wish to welcome our new students in grades PreK-5 and their families to our school and to welcome back those who have been with us before. I hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful summer.
“I am the principal of both Solon Elementary and Garret Schenck Elementary School so I split my time between the schools. I am here for half of each day. Our school secretary Mrs. Tanya McFadyen can help parents with any issues they may have and can help you make contact with me if you wish to.
“Mr. Terry Corson will serve as our lead teacher and will help me handle discipline issues.
“We are pleased to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students again this year under the district’s community eligibility program. Students can buy milk or juice for snack or to go with a cold lunch if they wish to for 30 cents.
“Again this year our students will have healthy snacks provided through a fresh fruits and vegetables grant program on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
“Please contact us if you have any questions. Thank-you for your cooperation. We look forward to a great new year!
“An open house will be held on Wednesday, September 25, from 6 – 7 p.m. Enjoy refresments , visit the classrooms. Please join us!
“On August 23, our new kindergartners attended an open house to acquaint them with their teacher Mre. Jen LaChance and to find out what life would be like in kindergarten. They listened to a story, participated in a scavenger hunt , enjoyed a snack, and played outside on the playground.
