Thank you to all of you who have continued to work to support our school and teachers in the time of CoronaEd. Teachers are working hard each day to provide information, videos, activities to be sure students master content for the year. It is vital that your child continues to do the work to minimize any gaps. Now is the time for them to work at their pace to give their best in the work that is provided. All staff are operating in flexibility and grace as work is completed. If your child is having difficulty, please reach out to their teachers as they are here to help.
Please note that the school is your official source of information on school work and expectations of our staff and administration. No class placements have or ever will be decided or based on CoronaEd work. All decisions will be based on work completed prior to March 13th. However, to be sure your child is ready and prepared for the next year they should continue to be studious and complete work. It will impact them now and in the future. We are resilient! We persevere! We are integral! We continue to do that which is right! We are in this together! Join us as we support our staff and our students through this temporary disruption. We are in this together!!
Happy Birthday to these 5th Graders this week:
Isabella Williams- April 26th
Bethanie Rose- May 1st

Student Support Team: As our time apart lengthens and family stressors increase, we need to remember that the school does have supports in place for you and your family. Our student support team has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to support kids. Please see the resources and contact information they have in place.
Week 3 of remote learning was another success! Teachers have been giving great feedback on what has been going on. They highlight the great support that they are receiving from parents! We know this continues to be a stressful time, and we continue to keep that in mind as teachers continue to practice Grace and Empathy.
You have earned it and asked for it – so here it is! Next weekend is a celebration of families and a time for a much-needed break after four weeks of remote instruction.
May 1: Family Friday - this will be a day of no online work and the family has the day off from schoolwork (You disconnect and shut off)
May 4: Momma Monday (Dad too!) - this will be another day off for the family and will be the kick-off to Teacher Appreciation Week and is a great way to say thanks to families.
May 8: Flex Day - your teachers will decide the best use of this day (planning and/or make up day for student work) – your teachers will reach out with more information.
May 1 – May 4 will give you a much-needed long weekend. We discussed making it Mother's Day weekend but did not think many families could make it that long before needing a break! (May 8 will help)
Cookie Dough / Boosters Fundraiser: We are excited that we have a date for Candyman Cookie Dough Delivery! We will have the drive-thru pick up on Thursday, May 7th, from 10 am until 5:30 pm in the high school parking lot. We will be working by appointment times to keep the line moving quickly and efficiently. Please take a look at the SIGN-UP GENIUS below and choose a time that works best for you.
We also wanted to let you know that we will be rescheduling the Main Event party! We are on hold due to the Governor's orders, but once they are lifted, we will reschedule. Please stay tuned for more information.
Boosters and the Athletic Department would like to say thank you to every family that participated in our Candyman fundraiser this year! We also appreciate your patience with our delayed delivery. We will see you on May 7th!
