The Lion's Share Newsletter
From the Desk of Mr. Miller:
Happy New Year, Grant families! I hope you and your family were able to have a wonderful holiday and a great winter break! The Miller household spent time at home enjoying family, hiking some local trails, and taking the time to catch our breath!
As you are aware, the district has decided to continue with Remote Learning for all students until Friday, January 15th. The first day back with students through Remote Learning will happen this coming Wednesday, January 6th. We are excited and eager to see our Lions! On Tuesday, January 19th, we will be welcoming students back into the building for those wishing to continue with In-Person Learning. Those families wishing to continue with Remote Learning can continue to do so and will have this option for the remainder of the year. The next opportunity to make changes (moving from Remote Learning to In-Person) will be the first week of March. Thank you, families, for those of you that have contacted the office to let us know of your desired changes for this upcoming quarter.
As a friendly reminder, please remember that the district has moved to make every Monday an asynchronous learning day. What this means is that all students, including our In-Person learners, will work from home with recorded lessons each Monday. There will still be a "live" morning meeting every Monday, but all students will then finish out the day with asynchronous learning. In-Person students will then return to the building each Tuesday - Friday, once students are able to return on January 19th.
Finally, we still have a small amount of student pictures that haven't been picked up yet. You are more than welcome to stop by the office from 7:00 - 3:00 Monday thru Friday to pick them up. If you haven't seen your student's picture yet, you really are missing out! Personality Portraits did an incredible job and the feedback from parents has been nothing but positive! You can still order your student pictures here: https://www.personalityportraits.net.
We do have a few fun things planned for January, so please be sure to check out our events and the January calendar below!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know how we can best support you!
