Happy 2020!

With the new year comes lots of opportunity for success. Learning is back in full swing under our roof. I ask that you talk with your child about what learning they have happening at school. Have them explain how they solved a math problem or have them make a connection within a story. Be a partner in your child’s education. Let’s make 2020 the best year we can!

Please contact me with any questions or concerns you have about your child or school.

Notes from the Office

Calling all 4k Students! Do you have a child who will be 4 by September 1, 2020? If so, they would be eligilbe for 4 year old kindergarten in the fall. We will be mailing out information regarding 4k registration soon. If you know of someone new to the area with a four year old child, or if you want to be on our mailing list please call the Abrams School Office at 920-826-5819, ext. 0. Thanks.

All Arts Day: On Friday, April 17th, 2020 we will once again be presenting the All Arts Day program where parent and community volunteers share their artistic talents with our students. It is a chance for students to see that art is all around them in a variety of forms. But to make it work, we need your help. Could you teach a small group of students how to take a good photograph? Scrapbook? Tie a fishing lure? Decorate a cake? Dance a polka? Make play-dough? The possibilities are endless, but we need about 25 volunteers to make the day work. Interested in being a presenter? Please contact the office (826-5819) for more information or to volunteer. Thanks.

Nurses Notes

The Flu: The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them. Please read the attached note regarding the Flu and what you can do to protect yourself from the flu.

Please keep your child home from school for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone. The fever should be gone without the use of a fever reducing medicine.
