Yearbooks, Yearbooks, Yearbooks

Our yearbooks are coming. We are still planning on selling yearbooks to anyone that has not had a chance to purchase one yet. Please read the attached document about the process we are going to do in regards to selling yearbooks and mailing them out.

We want your feedback!

We appreciate your partnership in education. It has been approximately eight weeks since we started our distance learning model. We have learned a great deal from this experience and the learning continues each day. With the feedback we collect from teachers, students, and all of you, we have been able to make any needed adjustments to improve our distance learning model. Please continue to let us know how things are going. Thank you for all that you are doing to support your child(ren) and our staff.

Tips For Distance Learning

  1. Create a schedule for your children.
  2. Turn off the News and Talk. The news can be upsetting, especially to our children. Continue to let your children know it is okay to feel however they are feeling. PBS News Hour- is news that is appropriate for kids grades 6-12
  3. Stay Connected with Family and Friends. Here is a list of ideas!
  4. Enjoy the family time. Ideas to stay Healthy, Educated, and Entertained at this time.
  5. Be patient & give each other grace.
  6. Stumped? Turn it over to the teachers: Have your child email the teachers.
  7. Check in With Teachers: Periodically, check in with teachers if your child is struggling.
  8. Just Start Today: Take away the pressure and overwhelming feeling. Some kids may have many assignments piling up and they don't know where to even begin. Tell them to just Start Today! Start with the lessons that are posted for today. Don't worry about the lessons from the past days or even weeks.
