Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe
Monday Minute for May 25, 2020
Finish Strong---When our weather starts getting warmer and with the longer amounts of daytime hours, it can be easy to get off track during distance learning. Just a reminder to keep working hard. If you need support in any way, please contact the school. There are many people listed in this newsletter ready to help if it is needed. Keep going and finish strong!
Summer SACC—Families that have used the SACC program in the past, please watch your email about Summer SACC information. This information will come from Jenn Kuehn.
End of the Year Collection—Devices and other materials will be collected on June 2. A separate letter will come home about the details. For grades K-3 the time will be from 9am-1pm. Fourth graders can drop theirs off during graduation drive through which starts at 2pm. The location will be the drop off area on the west side of Reede Gray. If you need a device for the summer, please log into Skyward Family Access and fill out the form there. Students who attend Essentail Child Care on that day will have their device collected after the morning meeting that day and turned in.
Last Day of School—The last day of school for students is June 3. On that day there will be a morning meeting for attendance but there not be any additional work.
