Dear Petrova Family,

Looking back at our year together, we would have never guessed this is how it would have ended. Since the middle of March, we have been in the midst of distance learning. What has been more apparent than ever during this time, is what a wonderful school community we have in the SLCSD school district, and particularly at Petrova Elementary School. We were astonished everyday by your perseverance, dedication, hard work and strong character during this time of challenge and change. We thank our students, families, faculty and staff for making this work under such a quick timeline, and with so many unknowns. We end our year as we always do; with celebrations! Field Day, Science Fair, and acknowledging the hard work of many of our students through the end of the year awards ceremony. Congratulations to our 5th graders as they move up to the MS, and to Mrs. Easterly who is retiring this year from her career in education. We wish you all the best. Please join us in the bus circle on June 11th from 10 a.m. -12 p.m. for our end of the year celebration. We can't wait to see your smiling faces! We miss you all, and can't wait to see you. Have a wonderful summer, and we hope to see you all soon.

Congratulations to All Participants of the Virtual Science Fair!

Petrova Press

Here is a copy of the Petrova Press. This publication was a collaboration between 16 students in the after school program, Miss Dalton, and Mrs. Parsons. Nice job everyone!

Pawsome Work!

Miss Dalton would like to recognize Tabitha Duprey! She has worked SO hard to get her work done every day even though it has been hard. Way to go, Tabby!

Bloomingdale Food Pantry

Dellice Chase has started a food pantry in the Bloomingdale little library, on Route 3, in the parking lot of Hex and Hop. The food pantry has been pest proofed, and contains dry goods and canned goods. Food is available for those who need it, and also is open for donations of non-perishable foods. Thank you Dellice!

Remote Instruction--We love seeing you!

Every Friday, Mrs. Rohe's 5th grade students are invited to make their fellow classmates laugh by dressing up!

Thank you SL Rotary Foundation for the very generous donation of books to our students!
