Dear Court Street Families,

It is Ovid who said, “Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”  We have had beautiful weather this summer, which has allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the Buffalo area.  It is my hope that you have had time to relax and rejuvenate while spending time with family and friends.

I would like to thank the custodial and cleaning staff for working hard to make sure our school is clean and ready for the opening of school.

The faculty and staff at Court Street Elementary have been working diligently to prepare for the beginning of school.  Like the children, many of us have butterflies in our bellies about the start of school.  Please know that we will take care of the children in order to ensure a smooth transition.  I would like to thank the Court Street Elementary PTO for helping with this endeavor.  Parents will be working together with our teachers to assist with bus arrival.  There will also be parent volunteers available to help with lunches during the first week of school.

On the first day of school, children will bring home a green folder containing the following documents for you to read and/or complete:

  • PTO Membership Drive
  • After School Dismissal form
  • Health Questionnaire and Emergency form
  • One Check Fundraiser information
  • eSchool Parent Portal information
  • 2016-2017 Student/Parent Handbook
  • Reading Connection newsletter
  • Acceptable User Policy
  • Free/Reduced lunch letter and application
  • Food service letter
  • FERPA information
We hope that children did Go for the Gold with Summer Reading!  The reading log and two reading activities are due on Friday, September 9th.  Our reading celebration will be held on Friday, September 30th for children who participated.
Please check the calendar of important dates for the month of September.  We look forward to seeing parents only at Open House on Thursday, September 22nd.
This year is Court Street's first walk-a-thon, which will be a fundraiser for the Court Street PTO.  The walk-a-thon will be held on Friday, September 23rd.  Look for information in the take home folder about this fun, family event.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer.

Yours in education, 

Mrs. Jacqueline Clinard
