TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week at Quincy! There will be fun for the amazing Q-Crew teachers all week long. The Quincy PTO will be providing lunch for the teachers on Tuesday, May 8.
If you want to thank your child’s teacher, one of the best ways is a personalized note about the positive impact the teacher has had on your child’s life. We have an easy way for you to share this message with your child’s teacher–simply complete this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc9d1ZLLsXLZQAV4mOSTNMov5jrUUqfwgaESh7IHzff2zR5Lg/viewform?usp=sf_link
HALF DAYS NEXT WEEK
We are excited to celebrate Tulip Time. As a reminder, May 9, 10 & 11 are half days. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 noon.
VOTE MAY 8
ZPS will be on the ballot Tuesday, May 8 with a proposal to renew the 18-mill non-homestead property tax for one year. The tax is levied on industrial, commercial, and some agricultural property. It does not affect the taxes of the primary homeowner. Additional information is available at zps.org or call the Superintendent’s office at 616.748.3002.
PLANNING FOR NEXT YEAR
We have lots of learning yet to do this year, but we are already making plans for the 2018-19 school year at Quincy! We would like to announce a couple of staffing changes for next year.
Mrs. Lievense will be teaching third grade instead of second grade next year. Mrs. Lievense will be teaming with Mrs. Lucas next year. Talk about an amazing duo!
Mrs. Wilson will be back at Quincy after a year off to care for her son. She will be teaching kindergarten because Mrs. Pyle will be taking a year off to care for her newborn. Mrs. Wilson is excited to get back to teaching, she loved having the year with her son but she missed us!
We want to recruit YOU for the AMAZING Quincy PTO!! The PTO is changing meeting times to accommodate more parents, especially our working parents. Our PTO is hoping you will join them at their next meeting! On Tuesday, May 15 they will meet at 7pm in our library. Please come to find out how you can be involved! Our PTO supports many different areas such as teacher grant requests, playground needs, teacher appreciation lunch, 5th Grade Graduation, Grandparents Day, Field Trips, Spring Fling and the Reading Marathon to name just a few. Join us to have fun and to give back to the Q!
