October 30- Vacation Day - No School in Session

PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

We have begun the transition into our new learning model. I ask that we all be patient with one another as we do this. The staff is working hard to make sure that each of you is set up for success. Communication will be key throughout this time.


If your child is ill and can't participate in school, please still call the office just like if we were in the building. We will record the absence like we always have. If you or your child were to test positive for Covid-19, please also communicate this with the office as we are still looking to maintain accurate records of what is happening with our students.


The school is here to support each and every family in the best way that we can. Please reach out if you are having any type of difficulty and we will do all we can to assist you.


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

Mrs. Michalski

The Scrip program will be suspended while the district is in the fully virtual format. The office will make arrangements for any orders that were placed prior. If you have any questions, please call the school office at (920) 826-5713.


While we are unable to hold an in-person Book Fair this fall, we will be hosting an online Book Fair that will be open from Monday, October 19th through Sunday November 1st. All orders will be shipped directly to your home and book-only orders over $25 ship for free! In addition, our school will earn 25% of all purchases made during the online fair dates. In the past, money earned from our book fairs has been used to purchase books for the library, the book room, individual teachers for their classrooms, and for the office to use as birthday books!

Starting October 19th, please visit our home page at https://www.scholastic.com/bf/abramselementaryschool4 to browse thousands of titles and to fill your home libraries while helping support our school!
