A Message from Mrs. Walgast

Greetings Big T Families,

Today marks the end of the 2019-2020 school year and what an extraordinary year it has been! Yet, there was nothing ordinary about the end to this school year though. What has been not only ordinary and also extraordinary is the Big T community. This community always steps up and does whatever it takes to get the job done. I am proud of the entire Big T community for the perseverance and flexibility that each and everyone of you has shown. We all had to make adjustments on the fly and we “built the plane while it was flying and on fire”. Thank you! I am grateful to be a part of this amazing community!

Congratulations to our 5th graders and their families! Best wishes and good luck as you head off to middle school. We will miss you. And, remember that Big T is always your home.

As we head off into summer, there is still the unknown as to what next school year will look like. Throughout the next few months there will be communication with families regarding plans for August. Watch for news bulletins via email from the district on June 18, July 9 and July 23.

Have a rejuvenating and relaxing summer!

Now for the business part of this…

Summer Learning Opportunities: IReady and Lexia will continue to be available to students through July 31st. And, Google Classroom will also be available to students throughout the summer for review (however, teachers will not be accessing the Google Classrooms during the summer)

Class Lists: Class lists for the 2020-2021 school year will be posted during the week of August 10th.

Most sincerely,

Sarah Walgast

Annual Family Update for Returning Families

Please go online and make sure all your information is accurate. This is where you will update your permission forms for your child. If this isn't completed, we will need to have you sign paper forms. If you have an upcoming kindergartner, you will be able to add him/her after you update your current student. I have attached the instructions for the AFU below just in case you need them. Please let the office know if your child will not be attending Big T next school year (unless they are going to middle school). Thank you!

If your child isn't returning to Big T for 2020-21...

With the exception of 5th graders moving on to Middle School, please let the office know if your child won't be attending Big T next school year. Below is the withdrawal form you need to fill out so that we can get school records to their new school. Thank you for your help on this matter!

If you are not returning in the fall, prizes will be available at the front office in Fall when school resumes. If you have any questions please email Mrs. Donnelly at Thank you.
