Monday Morning Bearcub Brief

Volume CXL-26 May 2020

"Every CUB stepping up, reaching out, moving forward!"

Kleb Kudos

I cannot believe that it is time for my final Bearcub Brief of the year. Thank you all so much for all the hard work in spite of the unusual circumstances we have been through! While this has been a crazy last quarter and I would never have chosen it, There are definitely some positives I will always remember. Like how we just changed the way we do school within a week, and did it with an infectiously positive attitude. And isn't it crazy that most of us three months ago would have said, "what is Zoom???" Thank you, both teachers and parents alike, for your patience and persistence during altered operations!
I'd like to say a special thank you to everyone who volunteered to get ready for our Student Pickup and Drop-off that begins tomorrow! There are so many who have pitched in that it would be impossible to name--over sixty staff members have either helped collect and bag belongings or will be helping this coming week to get things to those families choosing to come to the curbside service this week. Thank you all so much! Kleb has always been a family that rises to the occasion, and you definitely did not disappoint...y'all are amazing!
Thanks as well to Brian Williams and his students in DigiCom 21 for putting together our final episode of Kleb180 for the year, even though we aren't on campus. Thank you so much for your dedication to make our 100th episode happen this year! Parents, please make sure to show this episode to your Bearcubs as part of our end of year happenings!

Kleb180 Episode 100

Huggins Highlights

Staff, this week, in lieu of my office hours, we will have a very brief all faculty meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, May 26th. Due to the pickup and drop-off during the morning, the staff meeting will be in the afternoon at 4:15pm. Additionally, please remember that I would like to have staff feedback on the End of Year here to complete it today if you have not already done so.

Parents and staff, don't forget that student pickup/dropoff occurs this Tuesday through Thursday, May 26th-28th. If you missed it, you can find the procedures here. Please fill out this form to let us know that you are coming.

Parents, there will be a few special things happening this week to help celebrate the end of school!

  • Tuesday please show the final Kleb180 Video! Click here to access the video and show it to your Bearcub!
  • On Wednesday, May 27th, Mr. Coleman will send out a special Goodbye Flipgrid he has coordinated for our 8th grade students. Since we missed out on seeing them at the end of the year, we wanted the chance to say goodbye!
  • On Thursday, May 28th, we will send out the link to our end of year award ceremonies. Even though we can't meet in person, we still want to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of all of our Bearcubs this year.

Finally, staff, this Friday will be our checkout day. Returning staff, your entire checkout will be virtual. Class sets of textbooks, supplies and materials, and technology will remain in your classroom and keys, keycards and laptops will stay issued throughout the summer. Since this is much of the typical checkout process, the few remaining things will be sent out via email and you will give assurances of completion via a Google form. Non-returning staff, please make sure to come to campus on Friday, May 29th between 9am and noon to complete the in-person portions of checkout.
