Home / School News / Our Family Weekly for April 9th


April 9, 2021

We are using our great outdoor spaces for everyone to participate in outdoor learning. Hopefully more sunshine comes our way! Next week our Red Cohort (Ms. Green and Ms. Murphy’s, and Ms. Lineham and Ms. Robichaud’s classes) has a Wheels afternoon on Wednesday at 1:40 to 2:35. We will close the drive through for this time. Thursday is early dismissal day with our Panthers going home at 11:45. Teachers have let their classes know about contacting them to meet virtually. If you have any questions, please send your teacher an email. Thank you! Our PAC meeting will be held virtually at 6:00pm on Thursday as well. Mme Dailey’s and Mme Hait’s classes are heading to our community park on Friday morning.

Thank you to all of our Panthers who are working hard to stay in their cohorts and wash their hands throughout the day. Thank you to all of our families for making pick up and drop off time short and safe. We appreciate how hard everyone is working to keep each other safe. Have a great weekend and we hope you can find some lovely beach treasures this weekend! (Maybe the waterfall at Mystic or Sandcut Beach.)

Thank you, Tess Vally
