Signing Out For the Summer!

Thank you for a wonderful 2020-21 school year.  This year has certainly been challenging in many ways, but it has also been so incredibly rewarding.

We will be sending home / mailing report cards next week Friday, June 11.  Please remember that we will not be providing placement information for the 2021-22 school year with these report cards.  Due to potential fluctuations in numbers and the possibility of staff movement within the district we will send this information out later this summer.  I am hopeful that we will be able to provide this sooner than last year, but rest assured that we will get it to you as soon as we are given the green light.

Our grade level teams have worked to create class supply lists for each grade level that will be applicable regardless of a student’s teacher assignment.  For those of you that hope to shop before lists are released, please utilize the lists linked here:  KindergartenFirst GradeSecond GradeThird GradeFourth GradeFifth Grade.

Here is the link which was shared out last week to information about and an invitation to an optional parent meeting regarding the district’s reasons for and plans moving forward regarding DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging). Please check out that link and register for that meeting if you’re interested.

I know that I will communicate again before the 2021-22 school year begins, but just to put some dates in your calendar, our first student day will be Monday, August 23. The first four days of school will be ½ day / Early Release days. There will be no school on Friday, August 27.

Just a heads up, we will not be using this blog next year. We will be sending out our bi weekly updates to your email. There will be more about this coming home as we get closer to starting school. Thank you for everything you did for us as a staff and for your children to help us navigate through this year! We hope you have a wonderful summer and enjoy your time off!
