Have a Safe Summer!

Dear Parents,

To support learning over the two week closure, teachers have created a suggested list of activities for your use. These activities are optional, however participating in them will help students maintain skills.  Please view the Pre K (SupplementalLearningActivitiesPreK.pdf) K-2 (SupplementalLearningActivitiesK-2ndGrade.pdf) and the 3-5 (SupplementalLearningOpportunities3rd-5thGrade.pdf) Supplemental Learning Opportunities. Resources are arranged by subject area and login and password information is included. These activities are meant to be a fun way to review and maintain information learned. Parent encouragement is much appreciated.

Please note, that the closing of school is to minimize the impact of COVID-19 in our community. It is important to adhere to the governor's request to avoid large gatherings.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 

Be safe and stay healthy!
