Soaring Over MDE

Week 14

Grateful

Yes, I realize that the week isn't quite over, but, with report cards coming out tomorrow I wanted to be sure to get the information to you in a timely manner.


The well deserved week off of school has finally arrived. (Please know there is NO school Monday, 11/23-Friday, 11/27.) I would like to encourage students to try to read at least 20-30 minutes each day. In my own home, we are trying hard to keep our boys on a similar schedule with some school work daily (via LEXIA or IXL and reading.) In addition, enjoying our family time is what we are really trying to focus on.


I want to take a moment to express how truly grateful I am for this amazing campus. Our teachers and staff have been working tirelessly to ensure learning is still happening on a daily basis. Our students are thriving in distance learning. Our families are helping students daily! None of us signed up for education to take place in this manner. However, as we end week 14 of Distance Learning, I can honestly say all parties involved are knocking it out of the park!


I hope your week off is filled with family, laughter, and relaxation!

Picking up class materials

Beginning Monday, November 30, 2020, we no longer will be allowing for work to be picked up from the office. While we understand this may be inconvenient for families, we cannot be blind to the fact that the numbers of COVID cases are rising steadily. My number one priority is keeping our campus and its stakeholders safe.


If you are late to get work, please arrange a time to pick the work up outside of your student's classroom. With the time change and the days getting darker earlier, gates are now being locked at 3:30. Please plan accordingly.
