|Dear Parents, |
The Step-it-up fundraiser has officially closed. Again, I want to thank all of our students, parents and staff for collecting a total of $30,645. This will provide about 100 additional Chromebooks for the school to use in the classrooms.
Tuesday, March 2 will be a digital learning day. Students will complete assignments online from home. Any student that had previously checked out a Chromebook from home will be given a computer to take home with them on Monday. Students will need to return computers to school on Wednesday to their classroom teacher. School lunch will be available at the school between 11:00 and 1:00 in addition to bus delivery to all bus stops. Buses will be at the first stop at 10:45.
Our Scholastic Book Fair opens virtually on Saturday. Parents can order books online. Books will be delivered directly to the home. Proceeds from the book fair will be used to purchase more books for the media center.
Please join us at the county office, (J. Alvin Wilbanks Instructional Support Center) on Tuesday, March 2 @ 6:00 for the GCPS Tapestry Art Show. We are excited to display our students' art work at the district building.
Students have until Sunday to complete this month's reading challenge. AR tests can be taken from home are at school. Please encourage your child to take AR tests after they read. All students should be reading nightly for at least 20 minutes.
March 2 is Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America day. The school will be celebrating his birthday all week. Teachers are decorating their classroom doors and recording videos of reading Dr. Seuss books that students can access from home. Students and staff will celebrate him on Thursday, March 4 by dressing up in their favorite Dr. Seuss character or favorite Dr. Seuss t-shirt. I can't wait to see all the creative costumes.
Have a great weekend.
