Weekly Update January 31
K-8 Families-- Well, we got the snow I was hoping they were wrong about which then led to us missing two days of school. I hope you were able to make the most of it at home and hopefully we don't see that type of disruption again this winter.
Our K8 Library fundraiser has started and it will all be done online. I am attaching a flyer to this email, please take some time to take a look and help out if you can.
If you students have come home asking for pennies (or any change) to bring to school, they aren't trying to do anything suspicious! The MS Student Council Penny War is going on right now so they would appreciate any change you can send their way. Plus, if the elementary brings more than the MS then the elementary kids will get to see Mr. Newberg be turned into a human cake! The opposite is true if the MS brings more, then I get it but I have faith in the elementary students to pull this off!
At the end of next week, elementary classes will likely be doing some sort of Valentine's Day activity. I have advised our elementary teachers that they may have students still do Valentines but anything brought to be passed to other students must be prepackaged. To go along with that, I would ask that you do not send your student any type of Valentine to the offices during the school day. We don't want to take any Covid risks with outside deliveries coming into the building. We appreciate your understanding on this.
I put this in last week but I am going to again this week. As a reminder, if for some reason you end up with a student who is put into quarantine, please make sure you are checking your email or your students are checking their Google Classrooms. While out, students are still expected to be doing their work. Teachers are making contacts with their students and helping them get the materials they need, please help us make sure the students are getting it and are working while they are out. We want our students to be successful and that takes your support!
