Hello Parents and Families,

Thank you once again for your continued partnership in these challenging times.  Without your partnership, we would be on a steep uphill battle in this current climate.  There are so many things to celebrate as we enter this holiday break.  Scholars are giving their best efforts day in and day out.  And as we close out our first report card week of the 20-21 school year, we want to send you guys into the break with a look at where weโ€™ve been, where we are going and the best ways for you to support your scholar over break and thereafter. 

Please join us on Thursday, December 17, 2020 for a Parent Workshop where we will be providing resources to you to best support your scholar at home in Humanities, Math and Guided Reading. 

If you have any questions please let your scholarโ€™s teacher know.  We look forward to seeing you all there!
