Governor DeWine made the announcement today to continue the order of schools to stay closed until May 1, which is a Friday. So as of now return date will be May 4.

Monday, April 6
th will be the drop off day for all work completed during the past three week period. All teachers will have work for their classes down in the cafeteria.

Pick. up will be from 8:30-12:30- All kindergarten students have packets to pick up. I am sending home all workbooks to make it easier for families to have the resources at home. Please, do not work ahead! We are planning to return to school on May 4th and will need those resources to complete our year. I am also sending home your child's chair pocket so that you can designate a certain area for school work. Keep all supplies and workbooks in the chair pocket. Thank you.

Hello Families,

We are in week three of the stay at home order. I am pleased to see many of the students logging in to freckle and MobyMax. This is a great way for the students to get practice reading and working on their math facts. 

You will be able to drop off completed work packets this week. I will have other work packets for the students ready for the extended days out. 

Try to keep a normal school schedule. Make a chart to help. This week I have set up a link to our Journeys reading series. I have to be logged in for the link to work. I will have the link active (fingers crossed) from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. Make sure your child is on line between these times to complete their reading work.
