Thank you to the PTA for providing the delicious breakfast, donuts, and lunch this week. Our staff felt so appreciated. Thanks to all the parents that donated funds in honor of our teachers. We feel so loved.
Congratulations to Ms. Griffith for winning a library cart full of supplies from Demco. We are thankful to Demco for their support of our school.
Kindergarten Registration is Now Open: If you know of or have a child that will be five on or before September 1st, it is time to get them registered for kindergarten. We did not have our traditional kindergarten registration this year due to Covid restrictions. Parents can register online and upload all necessary documents. All incoming kindergarten students will be able to register for a three week kindergarten academy to help get them ready for their first year of elementary school. Bus transportation will be provided if you register by Monday afternoon. We have only had 30% of our kindergarten students register. Please register, even if you do not have all the documents available yet.
We have many end of the year activities planned. Although we have to modify some of our traditional events, we are excited that we will be able to have them. Mark your calendars for the following:
May 17 – All students begin returning books to the media center.
May 21 – Step-up Day – This year, students will receive a colored square representing their teacher for 2021 – 2022. The teachers will come into the current classrooms, holding a colored square. Each teacher will introduce themselves and move on to the next classroom. Digital students will be given their color via email and will join the classroom virtually. Students that have opted out of in-person instruction for next year will not have a teacher assigned yet, as this is through the digital school, not Head.
May 24 – Senior Walk at 1:15– Previous students that attended Head and are now graduating from Brookwood HS will walk the halls of Head one last time.
May 24 – May 26 – End of the year parties for K-4 – Each class will have an end of the year celebration. Please contact your child's teacher for the specific day and time. Digital students will Zoom into the party from home. Parents will not be allowed to attend.
May 25 – 5th Grade Graduation – Graduation will be held in the gym. Each class will have a separate ceremony to allow for social distancing and keeping the maximum number of people under 100. Digital students may attend in-person for the graduation. Each student will be allowed to have only two guests attend. The event will be streamed live for other family members to watch.
9:30 – Ms. Galindo’s Class
11:00 – Ms. Lomax’s Class
12:30 - Ms. Neighbors’ and Mr. Brasfield’s Class
2:00 – Mr. Schaefer’s Class
May 26 – 5th grade Celebration – Thanks to the PTA for sponsoring activities to help send our fifth graders on to middle school. The day will be filled with fun activities throughout the day. Digital students may attend this in-person as many of the activities will not be in the classroom via Zoom.
May 26 – 5th grade Final Walk – Our fifth graders will walk the halls of Head one last time. All students throughout the building will have signs of encouragement as we send them off to middle school. Unfortunately, parents will not be permitted to attend this event.
May 26 – Computer Check in – All students that have borrowed computers from the school must return them on Wednesday from 10:00 – 12:00 or 4:00 – 6:00. Parents will drive through the car rider line to drop off their computers outside the media center. Please see below for more specific information.
June 14 – July 2 – Summer Enrichment and Acceleration – This year, the county is offering summer enrichment and acceleration for all students digitally. In addition, some students have been invited to attend in-person.
We are looking forward to another great week on the ranch.
