September Principal’s Message
We are very excited to welcome approximately 760 new and returning Cardinals back to another great year of working and playing together. This year we are celebrating the arrival of our new Dell computers and six new Promethean Boards. With these wonderful resources, we are truly ready to “Catch the Digital Wave!” It is going to be another fabulous year!
On Thursday, September 11, we will celebrate the new school year with our traditional Back to School Night Program. Please plan to join us in the Multi-Purpose Room at 6:30 PM for the PTA Meeting and to view our introductory multi-media program featuring pictures of our children and teachers. Also, if you are new to Shady Grove, please plan to attend the Parent Coffee for New Parents on Thursday, September 18 at either 8:30 AM or 6:00 PM in the Shady Grove STEM Lab.
We are currently entering our second year of implementation of the Response to Intervention Program. Our Educational Specialist for the program, Mrs. Christina Vitek, will join us for a Parent Coffee Program on Thursday, September 24 at 8:30 AM in the cafeteria. Please come and learn how Response to Intervention is used in Henrico County Public Schools to support children who struggle in reading or mathematics.
Are you interested in learning more about Henrico County’s gifted program, the identification process, and gifted services for identified students? Please mark your calendar and plan to join us on Thursday, October 2 when Mrs. Patti Griffen, Educational Specialist for Gifted Programs, will speak at a parent coffee program at 8:30 AM and 6:00 PM in the cafeteria.
Finally, we encourage you to utilize the school bus to transport your children to school whenever possible. Our earlier time schedule (that includes a 20 minute arrival window), and our increased student enrollment, will quickly produce back-ups on the front loop if large numbers of families opt to drive their children. Also, please remember that children may arrive beginning at 7:20 AM because adult supervision is available at that time. Thank you for partnering with us for safety!
In the meantime, we wish everyone a “Sensational September” and a “happy new year.” We are so excited about the great year ahead!
