Planning Ahead:

February 11: Valentine’s Day parties: Since Valentine’s Day is on a Monday this year, our Guiding Coalition made the collaborative decision to move Friendship week up and Valentine’s day parties to the Friday before Valentine’s Day. Party expectations are the same as they were in December: no money may be collected and only store bought items can be brought in for the parties. If you have questions please see Jennifer or Tracy.


February 11: This is also the last day of CIRCLE MOY Testing for PK 4. If Covid becomes an issue for either Teachers or students, we can work on finding some solutions or an extension if necessary. Please do not let CIRCLE Testing become a priority over your personal health.


February 14: The PK 4 Curriculum is scheduled to be released for the 5th 6 weeks on this date. It is delayed due to the C&I Department helping sub on campuses.


February 18: Spring Parent Conference Day: Parent conferences will be held virtually due to COVID safety restrictions. No parents will be allowed on campus for these meetings. Please make efforts to meet with all of your parents to discuss academic progress, behavior and or attendance concerns. You may email your Parent conference documentation to Tracy by the end of February in case there are parents who are not available on February 18. Conferences should not start before this date.


Purposeful Planning: Due to lack of Guest Educators and the challenges that are coming with COVID, we will not be scheduling a formal half day planning time for the 5th 6 Weeks for teams. If Teams would like to meet after school, we can make sure you receive PD Credit for your time. Just get with Tracy to get this scheduled in Eduphoria. We hope to resume regular Purposeful Planning for the 6th 6 Weeks. More info will come on that at a later date.


I really appreciate everyone’s flexibility and willingness to help out in these challenging times.


If you have any questions or concerns about any of the above information, please do not hesitate to contact one of your Administrators.

Our 100th Day was so fun!

Growing Professionally: NAEYC Blog: Five Democratic Life Skills for a Civil Society

"What can educators do to grow children to be strong citizens in our democracy who can think through issues, problem solve, and positively engage with others and participate in society? The focus on problem solving, recognizing and responding to emotions, and building relationships in early childhood education can serve as a model and a place to start. " -Dan Gartrell
