    • Mask wearing, social distancing and other safety measures will be implemented. Please be prepared to follow these protocols.

Valentine's Day

Although Valentine's Day does not fall on a school day, we would still like the students to have the opportunity to participate in a classroom celebration. Students will be able to bring valentines this year using the following guidelines:


  • Students may only give valentines to students in their classroom cohort.
  • The teacher needs to pass out all valentines.
  • Students will be asked to wash their hands after handling valentines.


Teachers will be providing more details about the plans for their classrooms.

Mrs. Shaffer’s STEM Update

Hello! Our K-2 students have been coding masters for the past three weeks! A shout out to 2nd graders: Zane, Andi, Javier, Cutter, Kody, Adelais, Evan, Sam, Ian, Luna, and Max; 1st graders: Ryker, Cleo, Caroline, Ella, Shiloh, Easton, Madison, and Mitchell; and our kindergartners: Norah, Dmitryi, Kalista, and Mirabelle for doing an amazing job with their puzzles in Code.org! They are SuperStar Coders and have really shown initiative and perseverance when it comes to doing hard things!


After next week, we will switch again to 3-5th graders having STEM, and our K-2 students will have library. I look forward to incorporating some of our classroom robots into our programming as we build up our skills.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
