Mrs. Hladun's Tidings

Our superintendent, Mr. Leaman, sent an email home on Saturday indicating that our planned reopen day for in person instruction / transition to interConnect online instruction is Tuesday, October 6, 2020. Please be watching for more information about this transition in learning structures next week and for details on how to indicate if you intend to keep your child enrolled in online learning through interConnect or if you plan to send your child back to school in person. It will be important to read the information that Mr. Leaman sends out next week so that you fully understand the choices and can make the choice that is best for your family/your child/ren.


We are about half way through our PTC fundraiser with Believe. If you are able, we hope you'll visit www.ShopFund.com to view the catalog and consider making a contribution to our school.


Typically our office is open daily from 7:30am-4pm. However, with the poor air quality, we may begin closing our front office at 3 pm if the air quality is poor.

This Week's Most Important Thing - Sami's Circuit Family Night!

Over the last few years, we've enjoyed having the Sami's Circuit program on our campus. This year, Sami has taken his program online through "Sami's Circuit On Demand." Your child should be getting a link to participate in his program weekly from his/her teacher. Sami also has a great youtube page that he added content to all summer - you can find it here.


Part of Sami's On Demand program is a monthly livestreamed virtual family night!


We hope you'll join us for the first one - it is on Wednesday, September 16th from 6-7 pm.


To participate, visit www.samiscircuit.com/familynightcalendar. The link button on that page will be activated shortly before the event, which will connect families and school staff to the YouTube livestream.


Be sure to stay until the end of each event - a secret password will be given out, and families can enter to win Sami's Circuit Raffle Prizes. The entry form is located at the URL above.


We hope you'll join us for an evening of motivation and family fun in your living room!
