Families of Somers Elementary,

We certainly are enjoying the start of fall with some beautiful weather.  Our kindergarten will make their annual pilgrimage to the pumpkin farm, the garden is producing the last of its peppers, and our nature center is showing signs of fall.  We’re going to savor it because we all know what’s to come!

We have learned and practiced classroom routines and PBIS expectations.  We are headed for success.  I hope your child has shared his/her day with you.  If you have any questions, reach out to your child’s teacher.  Be sure to check the weekly update on Somers’ web page under “Classroom Updates.”

All classrooms are teaching ALiCE lessons.  These include strategies for keeping safe if there is ever a threat to our school.  If you missed the parent meetings last spring, the District will hold 3 informational sessions you may choose from.
