This has been a fantastic journey for us all. We are truly amazed at the growth we are seeing in your kids.  Our journey has been made possible by a joint effort between your family and your child's teacher. This has been a HUGE ask that all parents across the country have had to step up and answer. We know this has been difficult, but your work has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated.  With the State's grading policy, it would be easy to give up.  You have not, and you have stayed invested in your child's learning.  This investment may not pay off in an A, but it will pay dividends down the road. 

We hope you enjoyed FAMILY FRIDAY and will enjoy MOM MONDAY (DAD TOO!).  This quick break was needed and will help your family finish strong. 

TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK  As we promised, we wanted to share a few details about Teacher Appreciation Week. COVID has complicated and altered many aspects of our "normal life" for the last few weeks, and Teacher Appreciation Week is no different. While we do not want to add another thing onto your list of things to do, we do know that many of you have already reached out and wanted to see how you could still celebrate your teachers. Below are a few ways we can help you and even a couple of suggestions for those always looking for ideas.   1- For those that are planners and have already purchased gifts for teachers- we will have a drop off box in the front of the K-4 building on Monday and Tuesday from 9 am-1 pm. If you will make sure it is clearly labeled with the teacher's name and grade level. We will sort them and make arrangements to get them to the teacher. There will be a staff member monitoring the box to make sure items are secure.  2- We will also have prompts for social media posts and emails daily. As much as teachers enjoy gifts, they want to hear from their students. We will encourage you to comment on our daily Facebook post, tweet, or email the teacher directly with a message or short video. Now more than ever, they need to hear how much they mean to us!  3- If you are still looking for ideas to get a gift to your teachers here are a few suggestions: * E-gift cards (virtual gift cards)- several retail merchants/restaurants are offering this option. You can purchase a gift card and email it directly to your teacher.  * We are still receiving mail at school, so if you are buying something you can have it shipped to school with the teacher's name, we will make sure they get it. * We have also asked staff to create updated Amazon Wish Lists. Those that have shared their list are on our website under the parent section. Keep checking back as new teachers share their lists. They will be added as we receive them. Again, COVID has added a new twist to celebrating our AWESOME teachers, but it will not keep us from celebrating them! The Admin and Board and PAL have gotten creative and will also be celebrating. Again, we do not want to add stress to you but know that so many of you have already reached out asking, so we wanted to share. 

PS- Parents be on the lookout for special social media posts for you on Monday. Our teachers know that this is not an easy adjustment for you either. We are all indeed in this together!

BOARD MEETING:  The next board meeting will be May 12.  Please be on the lookout for more detailed information.
