A Note from Mr. Leonard

Dear Sun Path Families,

Nobody expected or wanted the year to end this way. Our staff miss our students and each other. The last few months have been challenging for our staff, students, and our families. I wanted to thank all of our families who stayed connected to Sun Path through Distance Learning. Parents/Guardians, contained in this newsletter is important information for the end of the school year on the return of your child's iPad, yearbook distribution and sales, and a year-end Reverse Parade.

IPads can be returned over several days starting June 3rd. This will be curbside drop-off on the upper level of Sun Path. There is more information later in this newsletter.

Yearbooks were supposed to be delivered to Sun Path on May 22nd. We have not yet received them. Our yearbook vendor, Lifetouch, is unsure when the yearbooks will be delivered to Sun Path. If the yearbooks come in this week, we will distribute them on the 3rd and 4th. If they do not come this week, we will need to come up with a different plan to get yearbooks out to the families who purchased a yearbook. According to Lifetouch, the delay is due to complications from Covid 19. Tentative Plan: Yearbooks, that were previously purchased can be picked up on the lower level of Sun Path on the first two days (June 3rd and 4th) of iPad drop off. So, if you need to drop off an iPad and pick up a yearbook, you can drop off your iPad on the upper level and go to the lower level to pick up your yearbook. A limited number of yearbooks will be for sale on the lower level, please refer to the limited sale times below. Several parents have inquired about not getting a class composite picture that Lifetouch used to supply to families. According to Lifetouch, they did not include a composite picture due to complications from Covid-19, and each family will receive a $10.00 certificate for next year's photos.

Due to distance learning, students will not be receiving a report card for the last quarter. Instead, parents will be emailed a short Progress Report. Teachers will email out the progress reports out between June 3rd and June 8th.

Most items that belong to our students went home, were picked up, or were delivered. We do have many items that were in the lost and found, or we did not know the owner of the item. We have the lost and found set up on upper level of Sun Path. See the video link later in this newsletter.

Our staff misses our kids, and we hate that we cannot celebrate the end of the year as we have normally done. We would like to celebrate in a different way with a Reverse Parade on June 2nd at Sun Path starting at 6:30 PM. Click on the link later in the newsletter for more information.

I want to thank all of our students and families for another great year. The last quarter and the end of the year was not what we envisioned when we started school in the fall, but I will always remember this school year. I really hope to see you all in the fall!

Take Care and have a great summer,

Patrick Leonard
