Dear Rosa Parks Families,
Let me begin with a HUGE thank you! Without you and your partnership with your child's teacher, I am not sure where we would all be at this time. Your grit, dedication, and determination is Epic. Our students are learning! Please continue to reach out to us with your questions. We have several resources and are here to help.
The county has asked parents to go back into ParentVue and review your survey responses from this past summer for the Return to Learn preferences. The window will be open from September 28th - October 4th. You will be asked to update your selection for virtual or in-person for your child/children. If you do not need to change your preferences, no action is needed. If you as the parent did not make a selection this past summer and you choose not to select a preference now, your child/children will default to attending in-person for planning purposes.
In August, we potentially identified teachers who would be teaching virtually and who would be coming back in the building for in-person instruction. We did our best to divide students into those classrooms so we would not have to move children when we return. Unfortunately, due to enrollment increases in some grade levels, some students might have to be moved to either a virtual teacher or an in-person. The majority of our students will be able to stay with their classroom teachers they have now.
For help on how to complete this selection update via the ParentVue App or Website, view the images at the bottom of this newsletter.

Please know that teachers are taking grades on student work. It is important that your child complete the assigned work either given by the teacher or the assignments in Canvas. If you have questions about assignments, you can have your child open up their canvas in StudentVue to see what needs to be done. https://www.pwcs.edu/about_us/the_hub/student_v_u_e_information
Please be sure that your child understands that turning off their camera and walking away from their learning is not acceptable. On some occasions students are not communicating with their classroom teachers when called on. It is important that our students know how important their at-home learning is right now.
YAY - THE 2019-2020 YEARBOOKS ARE HERE!
On Saturday, Oct 3rd, 8:30am - 11:30am, yearbooks can be picked up at school. The pick-up is only for students who purchased a yearbook. Please drive to the back of the building to door #9. Ms. Shilatz will be there with a roster of students whose parents purchased a yearbook. Please write your student's name on a piece of paper, hold it up in the window and the yearbook will be delivered to your car. Please note, the 5th grade team will be doing an interactive notebook pick-up and library card sign up at the same time so please drive down the kiss and ride line to go around back to the back of the school.
Mark your calendars for our Annual Spirit Wear Sales - The spirit wear campaign will run from October 13th - 23rd, remaining open throughout the weekend. Last day for sales will be October 26th. The campaign will be all online this year for ordering. The design has been approved and more information will be coming to you shortly.
