June 12th- Last Day of Remote Learning
While this year has been anything but normal, we've made it through...together!
Thank you to all of the families who worked with us to ensure that we all remained as connected as possible! 92% of our students logged into zoom lessons at least once during this time of remote learning and even more than that remained engaged through completing online lessons and activities! This was only possible with your support!
As you move into the summer, we hope that, after taking a much needed and deserved break from their chromebooks, students will continue to remain engaged through the use of Dreambox and Imagine Learning over the summer! Be on the lookout for some fun challenges!
We hope that you all have a fun and safe summer!
We are fully prepared to mail them out to families who have already
purchased them as soon as they arrive!
End of the Year Pack Up/Pick Up
Teachers will pack up all student belongings and have them available for pick up in the auditorium lobby. We will use the same system that we used for device deployment where you will pull up, we will get your child's name, and then retrieve the items you need. Families will not need to exit their cars or enter the buildings.
We are preparing to gather items left in desks/cubbies and instruments. If your child has other items that need to be retrieved (i.e. headphones, glasses, etc.), please make your child's teacher aware so that he/she can gather those items as well.
*Field trip money will be returned at this time*
The schedule for student pick ups:
Monday, June 15th
2pm - 6pm
Tuesday, June 16th
10am - 2pm
Wednesday, June 17th
2pm - 6pm
Thursday, June 18th
10am - 2pm
CSD Elementary Summer Learning Program
To help our youngest students build a love of reading, Colonial is excited to offer an engaging and enriching learning opportunity for students entering 1st to 5th grade during the 2020-21 school year. Participating students will receive picture book(s) or a novel, an activity choice board, and creative materials that will be used from July 6th to August 6th.
Students will have the option of participating in a daily Zoom session (30-45 minutes) with a Colonial teacher that connects them with other students reading the same book. The teacher will also provide engaging and fun ELA and Math activities that they can complete throughout the day. As a parent, you can decide if your child participates in the choice board activities at home, the zoom lessons, or everything being offered to extend their learning this summer!

Tylers Camp for Rising 6th Graders
They will be providing live instruction in literacy and social-emotional learning each day while also providing access to an online portal where students will be able to access a range of enrichment content. These can be anything from art, dance, fitness and STEM.
