Our waiver process is moving forward. We have an appointment this afternoon with a public health department nurse to go over our plan. I will let you know as soon as possible when we are approved and what date the opening might take place.
Progress reports were mailed on Friday for TK through 3rd grades. For 4th through 8th grade they will be available for you to access on the Portals this afternoon. Please reach out to your child’s teacher(s) if you have questions.
The Pumpkin Patch is this Friday and spaces are full. We have had trouble getting volunteers to help and so we have been unable to open up to more hours. Please remember that we continue to need help and those on volunteer tuition plans still need to try their best to do their hours. We may not be billing for hours, but that does not mean we do not need help, especially PTO. PTO is trying to build community and plan safe and fun activities for our students but they cannot do it without your help.
Please, please, please, if you have had any exposure to Covid-19, directly or indirectly, do not come to the Pumpkin Patch. We have put every precaution we know to make certain that this is a safe event but we cannot control what you do on your own time. However, do not come if there is even a chance that you have been exposed. Everything, including the re-opening of school, is dependent on us doing this safely. Thank you.
I loved Kindness Week last week and seeing the activities that came from the hearts of our students. Let’s keep the kindness going for the whole year. Or even for forever!
Have a wonderful week,
Welcome back to school Falcon families! Hopefully, you enjoyed your summer and returned ready for the new year.
Thank you, Principal Jennifer Ramirez and all administration and faculty, for working through the break to teach summer enrichment classes and ensure we are ready for remote learning. We know dealing with COVID restrictions is not an easy task and we appreciate your willingness to seek feedback – meet with teachers, survey our parents, bounce ideas off school board – and adjust accordingly. Our school community is blessed by your dedication to our children’s education.
Remote learning is an adventure for us all. Our parents are navigating work-school schedules, learning how to support their children’s learning needs, and assisting our teachers. Thank you, parents, for your willingness to be flexible, your positive attitudes and your outstanding support of Blessed Are the Children. Your unwavering support – time, talent and treasure – is one of our school’s greatest strengths. Please continue to participate in our community and don’t forget to make your voice heard by responding to school surveys.
If you are interested in getting more involved, please consider joining a school board committee. These volunteers help with a variety of items including our school’s budget, building projects, strategic planning, fundraising, and publication relations. Contact SPASboardaffairs@gmail.com for more details.
