The word of the month is CITIZENSHIP
From the Principal, Ms. Nora Sullivan
The final PTA meeting for the year will be held on Monday, June 7th at 6:30 pm. Please join us as we wrap up the year and begin to plan for next year. The Scholastic Book Fair is virtual this year and will be held until June 14 . Our modified Field Day will take place rain or shine on Friday, June 11th.
This may be the last Smores' newsletter since the district is adopting a new platform for all messaging and communication starting in the fall. The new platform will be Parent Square and it is our goal to unify all of our communications and engage our parents and families under one platform. More information will follow about Parent Square but I am learning that it is user friendly and can send reminders, surveys, post alerts, and share photos and videos.
As we finish strong, I want you to know how proud I am of all the students this year who came to school ready to learn while adhering to all of the CDC restrictions. The students wore their masks, they distanced and washed their hands daily. They demonstrated perseverance and a willingness to work together in conjunction with their teachers. The staff and I were extremely proud of their extraordinary sense of cooperation and teamwork. I also want to commend all of our virtual students who learned remotely from home and applaud of all the parents, grandparents and caregivers who supported their learning. We missed them and can't wait to see them return to Veeder in September!
Please look for our summer library hours at Veeder to sign out books and keep the love of reading alive in your homes during July and August. Information about the upcoming school year, along with teacher placements will be shared in mid-August. Have a Happy and Safe Summer! ~Ms. Sullivan
