|Dear Parents, |
Our Step-it-up fundraiser has been a great success! Thank you to all you did to encourage friends and family to donate to our school. As of this morning, we have raised over $28,000 to go towards the purchase of Chromebooks. You still have until Sunday night to donate. I'm hoping we can reach $30,000. Wouldn't that be amazing?
All parents should have received an email with a link to a survey. This survey is very important for our school. We use the results from this survey to celebrate the great things we are doing and to improve on any areas of concern. Please take a few minutes to fill this out for our school. We are hoping to get at least 300 participants, which is less than half of the student population.
Early release parent conferences are next week. All conferences will be held virtually. Please make sure you are signed up for a conference with your child's teacher. Dismissal will begin at 12:50. Lunch for our digital students will be from 10:45 - 12:00.
Congratulations to Shann Griffith for receiving a $7,000 grant from Walton EMC to support our one million words and beyond campaign. This money will be used to purchase additional books for the media center. We have so many students reading, that we need to order more books to accommodate all students.
Please remember that any student that has any symptoms of Covid should stay home, even if you think it is just a cold. If someone in the household has tested positive for Covid, you must notify the school about this and quarantine all family members in the home. Please help us stop the spread!
Check your child's temperature and assess him or her for the following COVID-19 symptoms, using the checklist below:
□ Fever (100.4° or higher) or chills □ Headache □ Sore throat
□ Cough □ New loss of taste or smell □ Fatigue
□ Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing □ Congestion or runny nose
□ Muscle or body aches □ Nausea or vomiting
Have a great long weekend. Happy Valentine's Day! See you back at school on Tuesday.
