Last Day of School-May 26
Lost and Found Items
Our office team will have all lost/found items on tables out in front of the school from 3-4 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday. Anything left after that will be donated to charity.
Technology Notes from Mrs. Powers
What a year! It was full of technology in ways we have never experienced before. We may not have liked all of it, but it sure did save the day. Now we need to round everything up and get it ready for next year. Please check at home for certain items. Some students still have iPads at home that need to be returned with the cord. There are also still some mifi’s at home. These are the wifi hotspots some families received. One last look for cords and computers is also a good idea.
PSDV students can drop computers and cords off at Werner Wednesday or Thursday. There will be a collection bin in the front of the building.
Thank you for your help with this.
