The Proud Pirate
Week of June 1, 2020
A Newsletter for the Friends and Families of Furry Elementary! The Perkins Family strives for unsurpassed educational opportunities so every student may achieve their greatest potential.
It's Our Last Week of School!
I can't thank you all enough for all of your work and flexibility the past 11 or so weeks of school. This has truly been an adventure for all of us and I'm so lucky to have been able to be on this journey with our Furry staff, families and children.
Please look for one more newsletter being sent to you and your child on our last day of school. It will be filled with messages from our staff for you and your child!
One Last Goodbye and Welcome Summer Drive-Thru Celebration!
Please remember to stay in your car and drive safely as you wave to our staff. We'll be in our masks while maintaining social distancing...it's going to be hard for us! We all just want to give your children high fives and hugs...they've worked so hard and we are so proud of them!
Feel free to make a few rounds if you choose to do so!
For those of you who can't make it to our celebration on Monday and still need to pick up your supplies, you can stop by school on Thursday, June 4, 5:00-7:00. Simply pull into the front parking lot, drive around the loop and park. An adult will come to your car to help you. If you know that you'll be coming on Thursday evening, please email Mrs. Yost (JYost@perkinsschools.org) so that she can have your supplies ready and waiting for you!
Lost and Found
Any items remaining will be donated to Goodwill or Care and Share.
Stuff the Bus
Please feel free to complete the online registration form to receive school supplies this fall. Although we don't know for sure what "back to school" will look like, our community would still like to step up and help our families.
You can complete the registration form by clicking here: VacationLand Federal Credit Union Stuff the Bus
The deadline for registration is June 26 and parents can register their children entering grades K-5.
We're so grateful to VacationLand Federal Credit Union for continuing this initiative to help all of the families in our community.
If you have any questions about this, please email Mrs. Yost @ email@example.com.
In an effort to streamline our support for home based learning, and to provide us with a standard point of contact for our students and their families, we have created firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a team email address and all incoming and outgoing correspondence will be visible to our entire tech department, allowing us to address issues collaboratively and with greater efficiency. Please use this as your primary resource for obtaining technology assistance now and throughout the summer.
Google Meets and Zoom Meetings
When you're meeting online, think of it like school and use your PERKS!
P is for Pride
Have pride in who you are and what you're learning. Be prompt, dressed for school and ready to learn.
E is for Engaged
Be engaged in the lesson your teacher is teaching you. If you have a question, ask!
R is for Respect
Respect others in your chat. Mute your microphone when you're not speaking and try not to interrupt others.
K is for Kind
Be kind to one another. Even online! Kind words and manners are a must!
S is for Safe
Please do not join any google meets or zoom meetings with people you don't know. If your computer is acting funny, ask an adult to help you.
