Our Mission Statement:
Learning for today and tomorrow.......
Dear Parents and Families,
November has been a very busy month at Georgia O’Keeffe. The teachers and students have worked diligently to complete all assessments. We are now preparing to welcome you to school for parent-teacher conferences. Conferences are important and it is a good time to have meaningful conversations with your child’s teacher(s) about their learning progress. Please arrive on time and be mindful that the teachers are on a set appointment schedule. If for some reason, you are unable to attend, please call the school and let us know. Mrs. Heileman and I are available if you need us or you just want to stop by the office and say hello!
We had a lockdown practice today and it was very successful. APS police said we were very prepared and we did a great job! We have made some changes to the lockdown protocol and put more specific procedures in place. We even had “lockdown lollipops” to help calm the students while they were hiding. In a matter of moments, everyone was hidden and quiet. Using Instant Messaging (IM) we were able to know exactly where children and staff were in the building. I am also proud to say that we practice fire drills every month and we can clear approximately 700 people in two minutes. I appreciate you letting us have your students for the larger part of their day and I will continue to work with my staff and the community to keep us safe.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful holiday. Georgia O’Keeffe Elementary is very thankful for all the PTA, parents and community supporters who help make our school a great place to be.
