Happy March my wonderful friends!
I hope everyone had a love-filled February and enjoyed spending time with loved ones! This month we will start rehearsals for our school musical! We are SO LUCKY we get to move forward with a musical this year, even though it will look a little different than in years past. The rehearsals will not have more than 10 or 12 per group and everyone will be required to wear a mask or face shield when they perform. The performance will be in May and it will be a live virtual event with a film made available after. A HUGE thank you to Julie Knight for jumping right in and getting things organized so our 4th and 5th grade could participate in a musical this year!
Parents of the 5th grade students, an email will be going out soon with the Maturation video to show your kids. There will be a separate video for both the boys and girls. Please take some time to watch the video with your 5th grader. We are unable to do a maturation at the school this year, but we still wanted to provide families with resources on how to talk to their students about this topic.
Make sure you get your 4th quarter learning option form filled out by March 12th! We need to have our count for next quarter to help our teachers be prepared. Here is the link to fill it out online: https://forms.gle/dXiaVn5rNvoZCqjJA
I want to remind parents to have their kids check the lost and found! We have so many coats and jackets in there that I am sure you would love to have returned to your homes! I also want to stress the importance of reminding your students to bring their lunches in the morning. Jen and Kelly have had a more than usual number of lunches dropped off that they have to deliver. They have so much to do in the day and should not be responsible for being the lunch couriers of the school.
We will have distance learning days on March 24th and March 25th. This is unlike other schools in the district. We are using March 25th as a makeup day for the power outage we had earlier in the year. March 26th will be a student non attendance day (no distance or in-person school) for teachers to enter grades for 3rd quarter. Our Spring Recess is scheduled for March 29th – April 2nd.
I hope everyone has a relaxing Spring Recess and takes some time to reset and gear up for the rest of the school year! I am so grateful for each of you and your wonderful kids!
