Principal's Weekly Message: April 12, 2021
Hello Owl Families,
We can't wait to welcome our kids back from Spring Break this week! We hope you've enjoyed some much needed rest, relaxation, and family time! We are going to jump right into our week with Spring Pictures! These are individual pictures only, no class pictures this year. Our goal is to capture every smile to put into our 2021 Yearbook! Strict social distancing and sanitization measures will be in place during picture sessions.
- House A Pictures will be taken on Tuesday, April, 13th during school.
- House B Pictures will be taken on Thursday, April 15th during school.
- Virtual Scholars can sign up to have their pictures taken on Wednesday, April 14th from 12pm - 5pm. Virtual Scholars use this link to sign up: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Eb2t0wChYz8W18hGYiBiWNjbfR_-hmUfIWn9OjCkLO8/edit?usp=sharing
Also, don't forget that our Spring Yard Clean Up day is this Saturday, April 17th from 2pm - 4pm. Bring your mask, gloves, rake, and team spirit to help us clean up our school garden and mulch our flower beds. If you have a wheelbarrow to bring, that would help too!
