That’s why you are invited to share with us how you feel your child’s school is doing.
Suffolk Public Schools
2015 Parent Perception Survey
Available April 27 through May 10
As part of the school division’s assessment of each school’s educational environment, parents of students are being invited to participate in the 2015 Parent Perception Survey.
The survey will be conducted starting Monday, April 27 and will continue until May 10, 2015.
Click here for Parent Info flyer.
Schools will use the information from the survey to help identify areas for improvement. This survey provides an excellent opportunity for parents to provide feedback about Suffolk Public Schools and to express perceptions about the learning environment at their child’s school.
An informational email was sent to parents on Tuesday, April 21. Principals also sent out recorded School Messenger telephone calls to inform families of the upcoming opportunity.
On Monday, April 27, the official survey invitation will be emailed and will include a school-specific web link to take parents directly to an online survey for each child’s school. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
Responses will remain anonymous and be combined with responses of other families at the school.
Additionally, schools with the highest percentage of parent responses will each be awarded $500.
If preferred, parents can pick up a paper copy of the survey at their child’s school.
Contact Bethanne Bradshaw, Public Information Officer, at (757) 925-6752 or by email at email@example.com for more information.
Way to go Oakland and thank you for supporting The March of Dimes!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Another busy week is in store for us in second grade. We will take PALS and MAP tests this week. Next week is also a busy one for us. Our spring program is on Tuesday, May 5, at King’s Fork High School. Your student needs to be there at 6:00Pm dressed in a solid white shirt and blue jeans. Then Friday, May 8th is our Field Day. The Second graders need to wear yellow shirts that day.
Please check with your child to see that they have pencils, paper, glue sticks, and crayons. Many of the students are missing these on a daily basis. My supplies that I bought this summer are almost gone now.
Please have your child read TO you every night. They can check out books on Wednesday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school. Becoming a better reader is like playing a sport. The more you practice the better you get.
In reading this 9 weeks, we are working on the following skills:
Use short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
Use vocabulary from other content areas
Use online resources
Read nonfiction texts
In Math this week we will begin working with money. This week in science, we will continue studying plants and their uses. In Social Studies we will continue our economics unit learning about the 3 types of resources. (human, capital, and natural)
Thank you for all of your support.

“What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.” –George Bernard Shaw
We are continuing our pursuit of knowledge. We have a busy month ahead of us. Please note we only have 34 days left together before the end of the school year. We will be welcoming the month of May in on Friday. In class we are preparing for the upcoming tests that will begin the second week of May. I am confident the students are ready and will do the best that they can on the tests. I have put a great amount of information under each subject heading on my blog. My newsletter will also have this information. I have listed the dates for our state tests on my blog and on my newsletter. There are also several key dates below that I am hopeful you will add to your calendar. As always if you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, write a note, send an e-mail, or come by, and I will do the same. Take care and have a great week!
