Principal for a Day!

August 8, 2014:
Dear Flatirons’ Families:
I want to start this letter by welcoming everyone to a new school year at Flatirons.  For many families, you are returning for another great year, for some families, it is your first year at Flatirons and I am sure you are anxious to get the year started and become a part of our community.  As I think about the start of another year I can’t believe this will be my eleventh year!  I still remember the first day I walked into Flatirons and really had a sense that this was a special place.  As I reflect over the years I can say even though we have changed and grown as a school and added new faces, the “small neighborhood school” feel is still here.   As I walk around the school with new families this sentiment is echoed again and again.
I want to tell you about the new faces in the building.  Ines Rutkovskis is our new kindergarten teacher.  She has been a multi-age teacher up at Jamestown Elementary for the last ten years and is excited about focusing on our youngest students in kindergarten.  Sarah Mattison is our new first grade teacher coming over from Heatherwood Elementary.  She has been in many times this summer working on her room and is excited to get started.  Becky Spear has moved from kindergarten to third grade and will be working with Stephanie Crawford.  She is excited about having some of her former students back with her this year.
These will be posted by the front doors and emailed to families at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15th, or you can find out on Registration Day on August 19th.
Tuesday, August 19th: 8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. – Students with Last Name A-Mc and 12:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. – Students with Last Name Me-Z – This is a  time to come and turn in your August Registration Paperwork and bring in medications and medication forms, complete your volunteer background checks, purchase school supplies, yearbooks, etc., have student pictures taken and visit many other Flatirons and Flatirons PTO Tables for beginning of school information.
Wednesday, August 20th from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – Teachers will be in their classrooms to meet their students and families.  This time is intended for a quick hello and the chance for students to drop off their Friday Folder they pick out during Registration.
We will have staff members meeting the buses the first few days of school.  As kindergarten, first grade and new students get off the buses; they will get a colored tie attached to their backpack that will match the sign of their bus to help them find their bus in the afternoon.
Families new to Flatirons are invited to come to the library on Friday, August 29th from 8:15 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., to hear from the Principal and have some refreshments.
One of the keys to Flatirons’ continued success is the partnership between the school staff and our families.  We have a very experienced and caring staff and involved supportive parents.  This combination has been a hallmark at Flatirons for years.  The staff here is looking forward to renewing these relationships and making new ones as we work together to provide a great school year for each one of our students.
I look forward to seeing everyone soon!
