USC Elementary

Rebel Review - May 2020

Rebel Rights - Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe

April Notes

This April was unlike any month anyone, child or adult, has ever experienced. We spent the entire month in Distance Learning and we learned we will remain in Distance Learning for the remainder of this school year. Even though this experience is new, different, challenging, and some days downright stressful, there are many positive things that have happened. This newsletter is dedicated to all of the wonderful things that happened at USC Elementary despite the trying times we are in.

One thing we have learned in the past several weeks is that it is difficult to make decisions more than a few days in advance. We will continue to keep you updated with school announcements through our JMC messaging system in the most timely manner possible.

Final Distribution of Materials for Distance Learning

We will have our final distribution of materials for Distance Learning on May 7th. PK-2 will be distributing materials in a variety of ways. Please look for announcements from your teacher on how to get your materials. We will still utilize our meal deliveries as well as curbside pickup at the school from 8:00-3:00. Again, please look for specific directions from your classroom teachers!

Jump Rope for Heart Update

Thank you to everyone who participated in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart. The American Heart Association is holding the prizes students have earned until schools are back in session.

We will get prizes to students as soon as we are all back in the building and they are delivered. Thanks for your patience!

USC Daycare - A Safe Place to Have Fun and Learn!


1st Graders were asked "What does Distance Learning look like to you?"

"You can learn your numbers and get smarter."

"I like distance learning, so I can practice Reading. It is fun!"

"I can spend more time on my iPad looking at and talking to my friends."

"I don't have to miss my family when we are distance learning."

"I can be a better Reader, I can practice reading smaller books and then I get to practice reading bigger books."

"Distance learning is good, it protects us from the virus."

"I like distance learning, it is fun, I can teach my little sister things at home."
