APRIL 2

As of now, the plan is to take our regular spring break (April 2-12) and then I will mail you another packet of activities to do with your child for the weeks of April 13-24. At this time we will just take it 2 weeks at a time, as the situation seems to be very fluid and ever changing as new information is released. You can choose how you want this last month of our school year to look for your child. I will continue to send out activities and lessons every 2 weeks, but it is up to you how you would like to structure your child's learning. I strongly encourage you to keep up with at least some of the work so that your child stays on track for next year. We will have biweekly Zoom calls for the kids to say hi to me and their classmates and for you to ask any questions.


My hope is that we will be able to at least have some type of end of the year celebration and to recognize those who are graduating. I would love to be able to have it at Rebounderz! since we won't be able to attend the field trip on April 22, however I am not sure if they will be open. If that isn't a possibility, it may be at a park or at school. I know many of your children were looking forward to the field trip so if we are not able to do it before the end of the school year, I would love to be able to do it in the summer once we return to "normal."


Parent teacher conference will be May 4 and 6 and I am hoping they will be at the school but might need to be via individual Zoom calls. 


I continue to pray for all of you as we navigate this new adventure. 


PS. I love getting mail! Thanks Zeke for sending me a special note! If your child writes to me, I promise I will write back to them :)

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to touch base with you all and update you on a few things. 

1. With the new "shelter in place" order that goes into effect tonight, our school will be closed to all staff, students, and parents through Monday April 13th. This means that we will not be able to return to school (as of right now) until Wednesday April 15th. 


2. You all should have received your packets today. If you did not receive a packet from me, please email me and let me know and I can resend one to you. 


3. There is a possibility that we will not be able to return to school on April 15th and that social distancing will last into May. If that is the case, the board will be asking preschool parents their input on ending the preschool school year early or continuing with packets and at-home learning. Please be thinking about this and praying about your desire for the rest of the school year.


4. Please know that I miss all of your precious children and you! I'm sure you are overwhelmed and probably going a little stir crazy but just know that I am praying for all of you and your children and I hope to be back together soon!

Hi Parents!

You made it to the end of week 1; hoping all went great! 

I am mailing out packets today that will include the following:

  • Progress reports

  • Field trip permission forms

  • Lesson plans and activities for the next 2 weeks

Please reach out to me via email or text/call (616) 283-8410 if you have any questions or need additional support with the activities. 

 

MONDAY 3/16/20

Welcome to day one of this new adventure! Attached is the lesson plan for today. If you do not have access to a printer, please let me know and I can print all of the activities for the week and have them available at the school office to pick up by tomorrow. 


Please remember that this is a time of distant learning, not a snow day or a break from school. The time your child spends apart from school is ultimately up to you to decide how to handle it, but I strongly encourage you to keep in some school routine and keep learning so that your child doesn't fall behind. 


Please reach out if you have any questions or need more assistance. Have a great day!!
