If you missed the first packet pickup, there is a set of plastic drawers near the main entrance of school where you can get one. We will replenish those packets as needed. Our second (new) packet pickup will be Tuesday, April 7th, 3:30-5:30 on Second Street. However, this time parents and/or children will grab the packets from the tables that will be set up. Teachers will not be handing out packets. If you cannot get here, at least have your child do three things: read, read, and read some more. :) Stay healthy!
We hope you are enjoying time with one another. Check our school website periodically for activities kids can do at no cost to you. These documents will be entitled "Practice Makes Perfect" and are suggestions to keep students in school mode while we are out. You can view and download the first document here. These documents will also be sent via our Peachjar app to those of you who have chosen to sign up for that. Take care, and stay safe!
