A Message from Principal Spencer

Friends and Family of Addenbrooke Grammar School,

I am crossing my fingers that fall weather is coming soon. I love the crisp mornings and sweater weather. I am ready, and I believe the students are as well. We have been busy here. This week I saw so many classrooms focused on our core virtues in their morning meetings. It has been a breath of fresh air to see our students really get into the community and work together. Rose Auferio planned an amazing Math with Mom’s activity, and I believe we had over fifty students and moms at this event. It was refreshing to get such a great turnout. I also want to thank the parents who attended our Grammar Ambassadors meeting on Monday. Our focus is on strength and stability in our program. We have come so far in such a short period of time.

If you have not already done so, please take the time to complete our volunteer survey. This is a great way for parents to stay up-to-date with current information, as well as sharing their information and strengths. We are working on using this to help move our school forward. 

Great news, I have noticed that 95% of students are in dress code each day. Thank you for your attention to this.

On Friday, September 28, we will have an assembly at 8:00 a.m. where we will do the following: star students of the month, fifth-grade recitation, summer playdate drawings, and summer reading library award presentation. At 8:30 a.m., preschool, kindergarten, second, and third grade will stay for the Miner's Alley Playhouse performance. First, fourth, and fifth grades will have their performance at 10:00 a.m.

October 5 is our next dress-out of uniform day. We will donate all the money collected from this day to a medical missionary trip for the purchase of vitamins. If desired, students could also bring in a bottle of vitamins to donate to the cause. One of our students will go on this mission, and we are encouraging everyone's support. Students will also be making a banner for the mission site and writing small notes for the children.

Please be on the lookout for your teacher’s messages to sign-up for parent-teacher conferences!

Other reminders: Please do not use cell phones in the car line. We really need to focus on watching kids and being attentive to the parking areas. Lost and found always needs attention, so please check if your child is missing items. We do clear this out every other Friday and donate the items. 

Monday, we have our annual Mustang Mini-Marathon! This fundraiser, sponsored by the PACS, is one of the kids’ favorites. I am including the marathon schedule and a picture of this year’s shirt in this message.
