We could use your assistance with items that are coming to school and become distractions.  Things like toys and trading cards can be disruptive to school and classrooms.  A backpack check may be helpful every now and then to support your child’s choices in what would be good to bring to school.

We want to share an update on our expectations for our Flexible Learning Days - those days when we can’t hold school in person, which is typically weather related.  Each teacher has a list of activities for students to choose from and complete.  We don’t expect students to work for 5 or 6 hours, but the activities can be done independently and we expect students to make a good faith effort to complete some work.  Students will be asked to show what they did during that Flexible Learning Day within a week of the day.  Teachers will mark students present if they have made an effort during that day, absent if they have not.  Please reach out if you have any questions about how this works.

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Just a reminder that school is not in session on Monday, January 16th as we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Because of the shorter week, we are not having our formal Second Step lessons.  We will continue with Lesson 11 the week after.

We added back our Tiger Pride Cafe to our list of ways we recognize and appreciate our students.  Staff can nominate students for this special time over a lunch period once a month.  Here are pictures of those students recognized in November and December.

As Minnesotan’s we know that our weather can be unpredictable and severe at times.  There may be times that we can’t safely hold classes at school, but still want to continue learning.  We have flexible learning time on those days.  Below is information taken from our website on what that looks like for us.

I wanted to give you a heads-up that we will be sharing an informational video we created on hygiene.  It is a topic we share with all of our students.  It will happen during the week of January 3rd.

We also have a puberty lesson with a video that we will share with all 5th graders on January 6th.  There is a specific lesson for girls and one for boys.  Students will be divided up into girl and boy groups for these lessons.
