Special Edition: Reopening Updates
Hello, everyone! I hope that you are doing well and have enjoyed the weekend. My focus this week will be on our further reopening.
We are thrilled to welcome most of our students back to in-person learning 4 days/week beginning this Monday! A lot of work and planning has taken place to make this a reality. It is now happening!
Please take the time to read this Special Edition Smore Newsletter over thoroughly so that you have all of the information necessary to help make this a smooth transition for all. I want to thank everyone, from our students to their families to our staff for making this possible! It has been/is a major undertaking, but well worth it! Please rest assured that safety and health are still at the foundation of each and every decision we make. So...whether your child will be back in school with us 4 days/week or continuing to learn online, we plan to continue to provide a high quality and well-rounded learning experience with the goal of making sure that your child is best prepared for the next grade level and future. As always, please feel free to contact our school with any questions that you may have! Thank you again for being our partners in your child’s education!
Students will be spaced 3 feet apart at all times and will wear masks with the exception of mask breaks that will be given as needed and not all at one time.
Distancing-Students will be spaced 6 feet apart in all common areas.
Hand washing-Students will wash their hands many times a day. In addition to that, they will also sanitize their hands when hand washing is not practical.

Learning and Growing at English Village!
*CALLING ALL BOOK LOVERS!*
It’s time for The English Village Read-A-Thon!!!
Our Read-A-Thon is a great way to promote reading & learning, while helping raise money for our school all at the same time! Funds raised will help the PTA fund end of year celebrations, and help fund the gifting of books to all students
The Read-A-Thon will run from 4/12/2021-4/30/2021, and students can collect donations online to help support their reading goals. Meanwhile, in the classroom - students will read & log their time to earn incentives and prizes!
Parents: Register your child and help them gain sponsors to support their time spent reading using this link. Once registered, you can log their at home reading time too via the Get Movin' Fund Hub website
If 100% of the students in a classroom just registers they will receive a Popsicle Party from the PTA!
So - what are you waiting for? Grab a book (or two!) and settle in for a good read for a GREAT cause!

Registration is free and helps to track reading minutes for in and out of school!
