Notes from the desks of Mrs. Senior and Mrs. Mitchell August 28, 2022

Hello Ninja Nation,


Can you believe that this week will start the month of September? We are also already in the fourth week of school! You will be surprised how fast time moves so it is important to stay on top of things each week.



  1. Virtual live lessons are in full swing. Is your student attending them? They are a valuable resource for them and it is key that they spend that time with their teacher and class.
  2. Please remember to have your ninja complete coursework daily. It is important that the learning guide be the one to actually submit the work so that you see the work your student is completing.
  3. Communication is the key to success in virtual education. Your student's teacher is there and is eager to partner with you for your student's success. Please don't hesitate to reach out to them.



Important Dates:


  • September 5 - Labor Day, No School for students and teachers

  • September 9th - Progress Reports (Core classes only and will be accessed through the Parent Portal)


  • September 13th - Live Lesson Day (Please complete the RSVP below)

  • October 17 - Teacher planning day, No school for students


  • October 25 - Report Cards


  • November 1 - Picture Day 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM, Crews Lake Middle School



September 13th IN-PERSON Live Lesson RSVP

Help us plan for the upcoming Live Lesson Day in September by filling out the RSVP form. Please tell us if you plan on dropping off your ninja for this event. We need every family to fill out the form with a yes or no so that we can plan for the ninjas who will be in attendance. Our school has grown so much in the last two years that our Live Lesson events will no longer include Learning Guides. Learning Guides will be invited to stay for Live Lessons during park meet-ups only. If your child is planning on attending the Live Lesson day, please pack a lunch and drink for the day.

Live, In-Person Lessons

We are excited to offer a more blended approach to learning this year. Live in-person lessons will be scheduled monthly. Students are invited to visit our eSchool headquarters, located on the Crews Lake Middle School campus to join in the learning and fun. This will be a drop-off and pick-up event. We do not have the space for learning guides to stay with students this year. Students will be dropped off at 9:30 and picked up at 1:30. We recommend sending your student with a lunch and drink. Park meet-ups will be scheduled when the weather starts to cool down. Teachers will provide information about those events on their announcement pages in the homeroom course. We are looking forward to seeing our ninjas more often in person this year!
