Teachers will provide students with more frequent breaks. I realize it is getting warmer and that we are in a building without air conditioning. Teachers are being advised to take students outside for learning (as they did at the beginning of the school year). Students that are spaced 3 ft. apart and engaged in silent work in their classrooms may take a mask break. When talking, working in a group, singing, moving around in class, etc., face coverings will be worn. Make sure to send you child with a fillable water bottle.
Returning to School in Fall
It is my intention (with Father Howard's blessing) to return to school for the 2021-2022 school year as it was before COVID. This is of course dependent on the status of the health of our students and the community. As a school we will:
Continue to use the cleaning protocols we have had in place this year.
Continue to promote handwashing with access to hand sanitizing stations.
Continue to recommend to keep students at home when they are not feeling well.
Virtual learning will not be available on a daily basis for students who are home for a day or two. Any virtual learning will be approved by Ms. Weise
Continue to review daily absences to determine if a pattern in illness is occurring. Also continue to consult with the Washington Ozaukee Health Department if there seems to be a spike in illnesses in the area.
Face coverings are anticipated to be optional for those who choose to use them, but not a requirement.
I told you all at the beginning of the school year that I was going to make it my goal that we would be in-person all year and we have made it this far. I have said it before, but I cannot say it enough, thank you for all you have done to help keep in-person learning a possibility for our students this year.

Mikey, Ryan, & Ellie Held were Principal for part of the day on Wednesday. They did announcements, observed in classrooms, helped make some decisions, and had lunch with me. They also brought ice pops for the school. Thanks for learning what it is like to be a Principal!

WB Library Summer Reading Program
I am the Youth Services Librarian at the West Bend Library. I have a short 2.5-minute video for you to view to promote the Summer Reading at the library this summer!
National studies have found that children who participate in Summer Reading Programs and read a minimum of six books over the summer score higher in reading AND math when they return to school in the fall!
We are doing a cool YARD SIGN promotion this summer, and we can't wait for your child(ren) to participate in Summer Reading and earn a sign! Let's fill the West Bend community with LIBRARY CHAMPION yard signs!
Student of the Week
The Virtue for the month of May is Patience: remaining calm and not becoming annoyed when dealing with problems or difficult people. This could also mean paying attention to something for a long time without becoming bored or losing interest. “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2
