I hope this email finds you well! It's an exciting time around here. Teachers and staff were given the opportunity for their second dose of the Covid vaccine this week, and our students who want to come in person get to return on Monday! We can't wait to see their faces!
Announcements from the Office
On Monday, 3/8, all students can come to in person school every day (we are no longer on a hybrid schedule). If you choose for your child to remain a distance learner, you may still do so. All students who want to come in person can come on Monday, 3/8. After Monday, our next re entry date is March 22nd.
There is no school on Friday, 3/12. This is a staff development day that was already on our school calendar.
All library books returned in the week March 8-11 earns you a piece of candy!! This even includes books you may have from your elementary schools. If you have no late books, you can earn a piece of candy too.
Prizes for the Reading Celebration will be drawn this week. Thanks to FRYSC (big shout out to Van Gadberry) and MCPS for funding this year's books and prizes.
Students, please bring earbuds to school!
Progress reports will be sent home this week.
Starting 3/8, all 6th grade students learning virtually will follow a new daily schedule. A new Google Classroom is being created to make this transition simple and easy. Virtual students will be added to the new classroom automatically. Students will still meet daily with their same teachers and will still access daily announcements and assignments in their regular Google Classrooms. The only change is the order of the classes. The new Classroom will host the Meet links for all teachers. The 6th grade virtual learning schedule will be
1st period - Reading/STEM*
2nd period - Exploratory
3rd period - ELA
4th period - Math
5th period - Social Studies
6th period - Science
*Students in Mrs. Wood's and Mrs. Allen's reading classes will not have daily Google Meets. They will work on assignments during first period.
