2020 Coming to a Close
If someone would have told me we would have been able to sustain in-person school as well as remote in the way we have all through the month of December, I would not have believed it. Thank you to the efforts of our parents, students, and staff, we have been able to provide great learning opportunities for students in BOTH venues! Let's reflect on those things in 2020 that were positive and look forward to better things in 2021!
Holiday Collection for the Children's Home of Peoria
Our total for this year was $5,827.10!! The outpouring of generous donations (no matter how large or small) was overwhelming! Banner Nation comes through for everyone no matter what the situation is! You all truly made a difference in the lives of SEVERAL children in need!
In place of the family movie night, I will be hosting a VIRTUAL BINGO night on Friday, January 8 via ZOOM. There are no prizes - just a fun evening of playing BINGO and connecting with ALL of our Bobcats! HERE is how we are going to do this:
- Students will be sent home with four BINGO boards to fill out (K-1 will also be given some pictures to cut and glue to form their BINGO boards for one round).
- Remote students - BINGO boards will be emailed to you the week of the 4th of January for you to print out, OR you may come to the foyer during school hours to pick up a board and/or pictures if you are a K-1 student.
- There will be THREE time frames that are grade specific:
- ~K and 1st grade - 5:30 - 6:15 PM (picture AND traditional BINGO)
- ~2nd and 3rd grade - 6:30 - 7:15 PM (traditional BINGO - fill out your own card/s)
- ~4th and 5th grade - 7:30 - 8:15 PM (traditional BINGO - fill out your own card/s)
- Use the ZOOM link below. Please log onto the Zoom link at your assigned time (see above). You may join via phone if you have a bad internet connection using the passcode 12345.
