I hope that everyone is staying safe and appreciating this extended time at home with their families. Today’s update is full of attachments and there aren’t too many new items to update. As I get more information about summer program, next school and the opening of events, I will update through an email update or my Thursday parent Zoom meeting. Here are the updates for this week:
Thank you to everyone that participated in the Parent Update meeting last week. It generated a great dialogue and I have posted the video and audio clip on our website. There is a question and answer document attached to this email. If you have any other questions, please contact me.
Last week was the official Teacher’s Appreciation Week. There was a nice turnout online to thank the teachers but if you would like to send appreciation to your child’s teacher, it is always nice for our teachers to hear positive comments. This is a challenging time for everyone but no more so than our teachers.
Packet and school work pick up and drop off will be this week Thursday and Friday from 9:00-3:00 or by special arrangement. The teachers will notify families what is ready for pick up. The packets should cover no less than three weeks and, in many cases, the remainder of the school year.
Distance Learning is continuing and many classrooms are using Zoom and Google Classrooms. I have created a behavior guide for these meetings, it is attached.
I am waiting for the final answer on the last day of distance learning and school – we are planning on June 24th but there is a chance the state and CPP will provide an earlier date.
After talking to staff, parents and some of the student council, there are four events that we will change from in person to virtual. Specific details will be posted separately.
May Day – May 22nd time to be announced
Memorial Day Prayer Service – May 26th
Variety Show – videos due June 8th. Compilation video to be posted June 15th.
Egg Drop – project videos due by June 12th. Compilation video posted June 17th.
The Summer Program is being finalized. I attached a brief overview and the rate sheet.
Online Meeting Schedule is attached
The 2020-2021 School Year calendar is attached to this email.
