A Message from Mrs. Walgast

Dear Big T Families,


Today is a day of transition and we know that with this comes many different feelings and emotions. To close our day together today, we asked students to reflect on something they have been grateful for while we were together in person as well as think of something they are looking forward to as we transition to remote learning. Being both grateful and positive helps ease transition and change..


Remote learning will begin Monday, 11/23. As we transition back to remote learning these first two days, Monday, 11/23, and Tuesday,11/24, will be days to reconnect and reacquaint ourselves with our remote learning. While these first two days will look a bit different as we adjust, attendance is required. Your child’s classroom teacher will provide you with more details regarding the schedule for Monday, 11/23 and Tuesday, 11/24. Thanksgiving break begins on Wednesday, 11/25. We will begin our regular daily schedule of remote learning on Monday, 11/30. Please know we are here to support you. The main office will be staffed daily. Should you need support or have questions, please give us a call.


On Monday, 11/23, we will welcome a new member to the Big T family. Ms. Estrada will join us in our Faculty Assistant position that was vacated when Mrs. Donnelly moved on to our district’s Innovative Technology Services Department. Ms. Estrada comes to us with experience in the school setting ranging from early childhood to high school. While we are engaged in remote learning, she will be assisting a few grade level teachers with small group instruction. Please join me in welcoming Ms. Estrada.


We know that this year has brought new challenges and opportunities. We would like to hear from you, please take a moment to read the information below to help us help you:


Poudre School District, Thompson School District and a group of local nonprofit organizations are applying for the RISE Education Fund Grant, which could provide funding to address child care and education needs during the time of COVID-19 and beyond. Please help us understand what your most pressing needs are by filling out this survey by Tuesday, Dec. 1st.


The survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to fill out.


At the end of the survey, you will have the option to enter to win a $100 VISA gift card (10 available). Gifts cards are sponsored by the Early Childhood Council of Larimer County. The survey is here: https://forms.gle/72ywYYNqK44sDNmPA


Thank you!


Stay safe and be well.


Most sincerely,


Sarah Walgast

Principal

Picture Info

Since we have moved to remote learning, we had to cancel our Dec 1 retake day. If we go back to in person, we will reschedule. Spring Pictures are scheduled for March 29th if we are in person.


Pictures arrived today and were sent home. If you need to pick yours up, there will be someone in the office 7:30-3:30 each day school is in session.
