"I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear."
Martin Luther King Jr.
Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day! My wish for you this holiday weekend is that you find renewed energy and spirit during this time of remembrance and service.
This upcoming week of school will be a bit different, so please take note of the following changes to our normal schedule:
There is no school Monday, January 18th
Tuesday is Hat Day! Everyone is welcome to wear their favorite hat to Zoom classes! The students earned this prize as part of their fundraising efforts with this year’s Boosterthon event. There is still time to register and collect pledges at www.funrun.com! This weekend is a great time to get a donation because there’s a special challenge for families: your child can earn a bonus reward simply by getting a donation this weekend only.
Wednesday is the Boosterthon Dance Party! A link to the event will be shared on ItsLearning. On Wednesday, they will also have to complete a vocabulary activity, but there is NO spelling quiz this week.
Thursday and Friday we will be taking the iReady assessment. All students will log onto itslearning at 9:00am to take the assessment together via the Zoom link on their calendar. The assessment will take the place of all other lessons we normally have on these days. I expect this assessment to take about two hours to complete. More information about the assessment and the iReady program is attached to this email.
Parent/Teacher/Student conferences will continue this Wednesday. If you have not already picked a time to meet, please do so here: https://signup.com/go/BAwaQsm
Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Have a wonderful, LONG holiday weekend!
