A Break and a Road Trip


Welcome back to school and can you even believe it is the year 2020!?!?!?!

I hope that everyone was able to have a good winter recess and spent some quality time with family and friends. Winter break is such a great "pause" during the school year...although it is a LONG pause and after 3 weeks the students are typically ready to come back to school (and the parents are typically also ready for them to go back to school).

My break was wonderful. My family was able to take a road trip over to my hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The trip was about 11 days (4 driving) and we had an absolute blast!! Honestly, the time we all spent in the car talking and playing (and listening to audiobooks) were the best part of the trip!

I hope that everyone was able to spend time with their loved ones and reconnect with those that we cannot see as often as we would like!

As we are just back from break I do not have many pictures of our students here at Shell Beach...so thought I would share pictures of my family from our trip, they are below.

We are so happy to have everyone back here at Shell Beach and look forward to a GREAT Spring!

Student Pick-Up from School

If you are picking up students from school and have some flexibility, please try to pick students up during their recess time. This helps to decrease in-class distractions and is best for ALL student learning. We certainly understand when you have to pick students up for appointments or it is time sensitive. 2019-2020 Bell Schedule linked here for your reference.
