Principal Snider's Message

Michael Snider

Be an encourager. The world has plenty of critics already.
Dave Willis

To the world, you may be one person, but to one person, you may be the world.
Bill Wilson

Intelligence plus character – that is the true goal of education.

Dear Parent / Guardian:
Welcome back to school. We had a very successful opening week, and we are thrilled to have students, staff, parents, and guardians back on the Townsend campus. 
I want to encourage every student to set a personal best for school attendance this year. Every school day matters because students are learning on many levels each day. They learn academic lessons, social lessons, life lessons involving interaction with their friends and classmates, life lessons such as dealing with conflict and showing compassion for others, and they are finding out who they are as people. Each day matters. I hope you will talk to your child about setting a personal goal for good school attendance this year. I also plan to ask the students to discuss school attendance with their friends and encourage them to come to school each day.
As parents and guardians, I thank you for your support and the support you give to Townsend Elementary School.
We invite all students, parents, and guardians to attend the Townsend School Open House on Thursday, September 14th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. 
This year, each grade level teacher (Kindergarten through 5th grade) will hold a short information session during open house. A schedule for the grade level presentations and the time in between presentations, in case you have students in multiple grade levels, is provided on the second page of this letter.
The music teachers will also be available for music recruitment night. Please see them with questions about joining band or orchestra, instrument rentals etc.
Our Universal Prekindergarten Open House will run from 6:00 – 7:00 pm.
Mike Snider
