Nixon Elementary Weekly Update

January 10, 2020

Welcome Back & Happy New Year!

Welcome back Nixon Bobcats!

I hope you had a restful and relaxing winter break together with your families and were excited to get back to learning last week. We saw some great attendance from our learners after the break and we are so happy to be back at school (remotely and in-person) learning together.

A few reminders for the upcoming week(s):

In-Person Learners: Families please remember that drop off does not start until 8:30 am since we do not have supervision for our learners until that time. In addition, please remember to ask your child if they have their mask before leaving the house. We would like every Bobcat to come to school with their own clean masks each day, so please remember to ask them before leaving the house. Lastly, please remember to send your learner with their snow gear each day (or leave it at school until Fridays) to ensure they can play out in the snow. This includes snow pants, boots, and mittens/gloves. Without these 3 items, children are not allowed to play in the snow.

Remote Learners: Please be sure to come pick up your next installment of learner materials 1/19-1/21 from 7:45 am-4:00 pm. If these times do not work, you will need to schedule a separate pick up time with me, so please email with request for alternate pick up times. In addition, please remember for those coming back to learning in person, you will NOT need to pick up these materials, but you WILL need to send all of their school materials to class with them on January 27th. This includes anything you have picked up this year, along with school supplies you may have purchased.

Dates for All Families to Remember:

  • January 18: No school (staff progress reporting day)
  • January 25-26: No school (staff professional learning days)
  • January 27: Start of 2nd semester & Transition to new learning environment for those who are changing to in-person/remote.

With events from this past week, I am reminded about the importance of creating calm, caring spaces for our learners where they can feel safe and be untouched by the uncertainty we adults feel at times. I am proud of every member of my staff for allowing the outside turmoil our country is feeling to not invade our classrooms both in-person and online. We continue to provide a place for every child to feel successful, cared for, and loved. As we move forward into the upcoming weeks, we will remain steadfast in our duty to provide a safe, supportive, and collaborative place for every child to learn.

I hope you all have a wonderful week. As always, please reach out if you have any questions.

Jeni Goebel, Principal

Please take about 15 minutes to review this video about how Nixon is working with learners to improve reading, the goals we have set as a building, and how you can support your children at home to help them meet our building goals.
