PARENT NOTE – May 11, 2020
“Blazin’ God’s Light”
Matthew 5: 15,16

FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
I hope you enjoyed the festivities at the May 4 Pick-Up/Drop-Off event. We enjoyed distributing 8th grade yard signs, honoring our teachers, passing out flowers to our parents, and seeing you! Each of you makes our community a better place to be.

As we complete this season of distance learning, I want to commend each of you for the dedication and support you have given to your children. Whether you are a parent or grandparent assisting a child, you deserve so much credit for your grit, perseverance, and your strong partnership as we support our students and their academic growth.

Our teachers have been working around the clock to pull together instructional videos, online resources, and provide individualized attention. I have continued to encourage our teachers to set boundaries for themselves – setting aside time to be with family, time for leisure activities, and time for personal devotion. Please be mindful of this as it pertains to teacher responses to questions or imputing student grades.

After today, there are 7 instructional days remaining until summer break. You can do it!

Keep up the great work. Let’s finish strong together!

Mr. Weener – Principal
