2020 is quickly drawing to a close. Despite the masks, hand sanitizer, hand washing, temperature checks, and social distancing, our students arrive ready for another great day. We are part of a fantastic community. It is heartwarming to see our students thrive; they truly have the joy of learning.
This is the last week before Winter Break. Students are dismissed early on Friday, December 18th. Kindergarten, First, and Second Graders’ day ends at noon; Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders end at 12:20. There is no AfterCare.
Next week is Spirit Week. We encourage students and faculty to participate and show school spirit by dressing accordingly. (This is optional. If students do not want to participate, please wear a regular school uniform.) Students must wear appropriate athletic shoes for safety during P.E. and recess. Those that are HyFlex or Distance Learning are encouraged to participate too!

Students made cards and letters for clients of the Mizell Senior Center. I will be bringing them to the center on Tuesday, and they’ll be included with the Meals on Wheels deliveries. Reading some of the letters made me smile, and I am so proud of the students. Some wrote jokes and riddles, others drew pictures, and some wrote about their favorite subject in school.
The Spirit Store pop-up scheduled for Wednesday, December 16th has been postponed. They will reschedule for when we return in January. The Spirit Store will be open by appointment only from now until December 18th If you have a specific item that you need to purchase, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will find a way to get it to you.
