Principal Update February 12 – February 14 – Connect Charter School

Connect Charter Family Weekly Update

Principal Update February 12 - February 14

This Week's Highlights

Grade 7 Thrive Day was complete with an abundance of snow.
Our next parent enrichment event (and last one for the year) will be tied to the THRIVE program, custom developed for our students. This engaging discussion will be facilitated by Jill Mitchell, developer of the THRIVE program, who has been leading activities out at FEC and supporting our teachers with in-classroom programming. Come see what students have been learning about self-awareness, self-management and resiliency – and take home tools to enhance continued conversations at home. 
As for the kids, students will once more vote for a movie and there will be dinner available to order. 
Dinner/event start time: 515pm
Program & movie runs 6:15pm-8:15pm. 
More to come!
CELEBRATION – Connect turns 25 in 2024!
We’re looking forward to the next events, planning in conjunction with the school administration.
FEC Family BBQ: moved to Saturday, May 25: 11am-3pm. Mark your calendar to join us as we have fun in the field – check out the new ropes course, visit the places your kids talk about from camps, and enjoy lunch with the school community. We are looking into bus transportation from the school to make it easy for everyone to attend. If you’d like to help organize, please let us know!
Parent Cocktail Party: date TBD. Any keen party planners out there? We are currently looking at venue and probable dates in late April.
