Week of May 4, 2020

Hello, this is Mrs. Webb with the weekly edition of North News.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and boy, do we appreciate them! Please consider sending a virtual thank you or make a video thank you on our flipgrid. Teachers have risen to the challenge of adapting to this new kind of normal and we owe them a huge amount of gratitude! Also on Wednesday of this week, we celebrate Nurse's Day. Nurses Kate and Angela are two of the best and we appreciate all they do to keep us healthy.

Mrs. Muniz and I want to continue our monthly tradition of Star Students and Birthday Bashes. If your child celebrated a birthday in March, have them join us for a virtual lunch tomorrow at 12:30 via Google classroom. Your child's teacher will send the code to join the classroom. Tuesday at 12:30 will be April Birthday Bash. May and summer birthday bashes will be announced next week.

We know you have belongings at the school and you want to get the opportunity to see your teacher one more time. We are organizing days for families to drive by to pick up belongings and drop off library books and any textbooks they have at home. Students will be keeping their Chromebooks for the summer. Check the calendar below for the date for your child's grade level drop off/pick up. We will share more details of the event in a future North News.

Join us Tuesday for PantherTales using our Google Classroom format. I will resend the code to join via Remind. This way it is a private group and strangers can't join us. This week we will be celebrating mothers, so come prepared with a picture of your mother to share and be ready to talk about what makes your mom so special.

I hope your weekend was swell and you are doing well. With the weekly edition of North News, this is Mrs. Webb. Make it a great week, or not, the choice is yours.
