Opening of school is always an exciting time of year

By Pat Pribyl, Principal

New Prague Primary School

The opening of the 2004-2005 school year is quickly approaching. This is always a very exciting time of the year for students, staff, parents, and the entire community. Staff members at New Prague Primary School are already very busy getting classrooms and schedules set up for the opening day of school on September 1.

Staff members new to our building this year include: Jen Kauzlarich (Kindergarten), Curt Maki (First Grade), Teresa Hoverson (Art), Laurie Wiebusch (Remedial Math), Nicole Borgen (Life Skills), and Julie DeGross (Office Assistant). Beth Horning will be returning to Kindergarten after a family leave. Katie Hughes, a second grade teacher, was married this past summer and became Mrs. Micklo.

We begin the new school year with Meet Your Teacher Night scheduled for Wednesday, August 25, from 6-8 p.m. A new parent orientation will be held early that evening from 5:30 to 6 p.m. for parents who have moved into our district this past summer. Families will be able to view the many positive improvements made to our building and playground area over the summer months. The new art program will be located in the building directly behind the primary school (commonly referred to as the portable). This building has not been used as a classroom since 1992, but has been updated to meet the needs of students.

A very special welcome is extended to our Kindergarten Class of 2017. Two orientation opportunities are available for kindergarten students beginning with Meet Your Teacher Night on August 25. A more formal orientation is set for Wednesday, September 1. It is very important that kindergarten parents and students attend this orientation. All completed immunization and registration forms should be turned in at this time.

The first day of school for Group B and Everyday kindergarten students is September 2. September 7 will be the first day of school for Group A students.

Please take time to visit our school web site at www.np.k12.mn.us. Curriculum outlines, parent handbook containing policies/procedures, monthly newsletter, teacher introductions, lunch menu, and updated school closing information are some of the items available at this web site. If you would like to receive the primary school monthly newsletter via web site, please return the request form included in our First Day Information Packet. This will help our school to save on paper and printing costs.

Emphasis on student responsibility and good listening skills will continue to be a priority during the 2004-2005 school year. Family and community members can help greatly with this effort by being good role models. Because it takes an entire community to raise good children, we look forward to strong home/school communication throughout the 2004-2005 school year. With this team effort we will have a very successful school year.
