Progress Reports and Parent/Teacher Conferences

Hello Parents, Guardians, and Students,

Happy Fall! I hope you’re enjoying the change in seasons as much as I am. I wanted to take the time to send a few updates your way.

You should have received a progress report detailing our curriculum and progress in ELL for the first half of Quarter 1. In this progress report there is a detailed description of topics we’ve studied and practiced as well as important updates from the ELL classroom at MSMS. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact me at the following email address: msinnott@bpsk12.org.

I would like to remind you that there will be Parent/Teacher Conferences coming up in November. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you soon and discuss your child’s progress in ELL.

Warm Wishes,
Miss Sinnott

P.S. Below is a picture of one of my favorite places in the fall: Killington, VT.

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful vacation! I was fortunate enough to travel to California to tour LA and catch up with close friends. Check out the picture below of the Pacific coastline in Malibu, CA.
