Hello Long Creek families!
As first quarter comes to a close, our teachers are looking forward to having face-to-face conferences with all parents regarding their child’s progress and areas to be strengthened. If you have not set a conference time yet, please contact your child’s teacher.
A special thanks to the PTO Bookfair committee, Margaret Hollar (Media Specialist), and all of the parent volunteers for coordinating another very successful Bookfair. We sold approximately $7,830 in books, of which we will use our portion of the proceeds towards building our media collection and continuing our AR program. Our Family Fun Night was also a great event as we had a number of fun activities for our Mighty Mustangs. Kudos to all of our families who participated in Family Fun Night!
As the weather becomes cooler, students will begin wearing sweaters and sweatshirts in the building during the school day. Please remember that these must also follow our uniform policy which indicates that they need to be navy blue, white, or gray if it displays the Long Creek logo. Students can wear any kind of jacket to school and at recess, but they will not be permitted to wear jackets in the building. Also, please remember that socks, knee-socks, and tights are required and must be navy blue, black, or white.
The Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners has voted to put a proposal for a quarter-cent (one-fourth of a penny) sales tax increase on the ballot November 4. If the measure is approved by voters, it is expected to bring in approximately $35 million a year in additional revenue to Mecklenburg County. County commissioners will give 80 percent of these revenues to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS). Early voting takes place October 23-November 1, and the General Election is November 4. Please get out and vote!
As always, thank you for your support. Have a safe and fun-filled November!
