Pearl Road PBIS Family Newsletter

December 2020

Twas the week before break, when all through the Google classes

The children were stirring, ready to leave for winter break in the masses.

The children on their screens and the teachers in their classrooms, really care.

They all hope that next year the kids will be there.

We will miss you all over winter break, but hope everyone takes this time to get some much needed rest and relaxation! 2020 has been a year that most of us will never forget. Reflecting back, I know that it has helped me learn how to be more present and appreciate moments and time with the people I love. Their presence is the best present I could ask for. Enjoy some family time no matter what holiday you celebrate. We will see you in 2021!

Happy Holidays,

Kaylee Yakovich, Family Liasion
