  "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay." Matthew 28:6
Easter break
April 10 and April 13 will be our Easter break this year. Do not expect any correspondence from our teachers on these days.

For the week of April 13, pickup will be on Tuesday instead of Monday. The times will be the same.
TRIP - week of April 13
You should have received a message outlining the new TRIP process yesterday. Given the Easter holiday, TRIP will be available for pickup on Tuesday, April 14. After that we will resume the regular Monday pickup.
From the counselors
As our at-home hours continue, perhaps your children are struggling with big emotions and behaviors. Big feelings are normal for many of us right now, but if you find that your kids are "stuck", please reach out for support. Ms. Smidt and Mrs. Michelle can be contacted by email or phone. Also, on the Online Learning Portal web page, there is a link with local counseling resources as well as 24 hr/day, 7 days/wk hotline numbers. May you feel the blessings of a supportive community!

Library Books
We have a way to order books from the library! Use the attached link to submit a request:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PL6mRVW2-W3INXOcltFSaPfK1rHGyPifRFgw29ZC_Dk/edit?edit_requested=true    

The books will be available for pickup at school on Monday when the regular pickup/drop off of school work takes place. You may also return books to the library at the same time. Books will be quarantined for a time before being distributed again.
Pop Can Trailer
At this time, we will stop the collection of cans/bottles and will be putting the trailer away as long as we feel it is necessary.
