I hope everyone enjoyed their "Spring Break." It looks like our teacher are excited and ready to start our Continuity of Learning Plan 2.0. Remember to set realistic goals for yourself and your children and know that we are all in this together!
Special Message from Dr. Zissios
Yearbooks will be delivered to our school at the start of the 20-21 school year. A process will be in place for children who have moved/graduated to pick up. Therefore, yearbooks will need to be pre-ordered.
ORDER NOW for $30.
(Staff members, please email me, in order to reserve your yearbook, there is no online payment option for the $20 price)
With several of our beloved events not happening this school year we would love to add a learning at home section to our yearbook! Please email photos of your students learning at home and any special projects/creative activities to: email@example.com
(please remember to send photos in the highest resolution possible for optimal printing)
Due to the Governor’s stay-at-home order, the start date for 2020-21 kindergarten registration will now be May 15, a month later than originally planned. Kindergarten registration is divided into two separate parts. Step 1 (May 15) is the completion of the forms. Step 2 (June 15) is the in-person verification of required documents. Both need to be completed for a child to be registered for the start of the next school year.
Staying Active with Mr. Abed
As with everything, you may need to adjust based on the age/ability of your child. I will continue to update this throughout the break and I will try to hit on as many sports as I can. I have also included family workout videos, yoga for kids, and dance party videos for kids. If you have come across any resources that you think would be great, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can add it to this list.
Thanks! - Mr. Abed
