An academic bilingual community fostering global citizenship
Dear Park Spanish Immersion School Community,
 
We hope that this finds you safe, warm, and well! I am certainly looking forward to seeing our children in our halls again, and I have heard from some of you that the students cannot wait to be back at school--and having outdoor recess!
 
We will send first semester progress reports in backpacks on Monday, rather than tomorrow as scheduled, due to teachers not having access to our printers during the last few days. I encourage you to work with your teachers if you have any questions or concerns about your student. These reports are just one way that we use to communicate their progress with you.
 
I hope to see many of you next week on Thursday, February 7th at PTO's Family, Fun, and Fitness Night! It's always a great time!
 
Take care and keep reading.
 
Sincerely,
 
Corey Maslowski
