GOOD EVENING LIL’ CAT FAMILIES! This is Principal Patterson Calling with our Weekly Update!  We are super excited to welcome our scholars back to school this week. We hope you all enjoyed your break.  Between now and the Winter break, we only have 16 days of school. Please help us keep our attendance rates up during this time by ensuring that your kiddos come to school every day!  When scholars attend school regularly, they learn more and graduation and success rates increase! We are excited to announce that we have the Colorado Rockies coming to MInnequa this Thursday!  They are coming to share a powerful and important message with our youngsters, a message about the importance of staying in school, staying away from drugs, getting involved in the community, and showing respect.  We want all of our scholars to wear purple or dress in their favorite Rockies gear on Thursday. Please help us show our appreciation to them for coming to our school here in Pueblo by having your child wear purple on Thursday!  This is a reminder that our mid-year DIBELS testing begins on December 3rd. Please make sure that your scholars are reading out loud every day. This week, we will be sending home sight word practice activities. You will also find them posted on our school internet page.  Please use these resources to increase your child’s reading skills. The more a child reads, the better reader they become. Thank you for all of your support and for helping make Minnequa an amazing place for kids! We look forward to seeing everyone this week! Have a great week.
