From the Principal (August 1, 2018)

August 1, 2018

Dear Middlebrook Families,

I hope you are having a lovely summer. I remind students to keep reading daily, as a part of the Trumbull First Selectman’s and Governor’s Reading Challenge. You can find more information about district summer reading expectations by clicking here.

***Just a reminder: there is an online reading log found on the same link that we encourage students and families to complete prior to returning to school in August. Also, we encourage our students to complete math review and visit math websites provided by TPS which you can access here.

I have attached the 2018-2019 Trumbull Schools Calendar. The first day of school is August 30th. Please mark your calendar for student open house on August 29 from 2-3pm. On this day, students make a brief visit to their classrooms prior to starting school. We find it is a great way to welcome students and families back from the long summer and it helps lower the anxiety of the first day.

Please mark your calendar for Middlebrook Elementary Back-to-School nights. On Wednesday, September 5th from 7-8pm kindergarten, first and second grade parents are invited to this informative evening spent in the classroom. Your child’s teacher will discuss classroom, curriculum and behavioral expectations. On Thursday, September 6th from 7-8pm, grades three, four and five teachers will host a similar evening for parents. These evenings are critical to the success of our students and help us to forge a strong learning partnership with parents. We ask that you get a child sitter, as children should not attend this important adult evening.

This year we are trying to send as much material as possible through email. Please make sure you have signed up for the parent portal on TPS website and provide the Middlebrook School office (203-452-4411) with an accurate email address. Placement letters will go out by email during the week of August 20th and are dependent on enrollment.

Finally, you can check our Middlebrook Elementary website for information about the PTA, policies, school news and sample supply lists for each grade level.

Best wishes,
