Thanks everyone for participating in the kindness challenge!!! Keep on being kind. We set a goal for everyone to participate in being kind and we reached it. Our reward is to have an ice cream party. We will be having our ice cream party on Wednesday, February 10 and on Thursday, February 11. Keep on being kind!!
Here are your February Calendars. Also a reminder that the care packages for the nursing home are due this Wednesday and Thursday. Thanks
Parents; This month we have been learning about community and helping our neighbors as they help us. Please help your child to complete the acts of kindness on his kindness checklist that I handed out in class and return to me by February 3 or February 4. Please make up a care package (ideas are on the handout I sent home) and bring them to me at that time. I will deliver them to the residents at E. Dene Moore Nursing Home. There are forty residents, so if anyone would like to do two, please let me know. Thanks and keep encouraging kindness where ever you and your child may go.

Parents; unfortunately a family member of one of our children has tested positive for Covid. One family member was tested and came back negative. So understandably, the family assumed that all were negative. The child was not exhibiting any symptoms so she attended school. The following day she began to exhibit symptoms and another family member tested positive. Therefore several students, as well as myself, will have to quarantine for ten days. I have decided to close all classes next week to allow for further disinfecting and prevent cross contamination. I will try to put together some activities that children can do at home and will let you know about these later.
Because cases have spiked, please be hypervigilant about sending your child to school. I have attached information the county sent me to answer questions of who will have to quarantine, and when to keep children home from school. I know that this is hard because many of the symptoms could just be a cold or allergies, however, considering the rise of cases, let’s err on the side of caution. I really do not want to have to close my school again.
Thanks so much.
