One of my favorite stories to read to my classes over my 23 years in education is We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. I love this story because it reminds us that something might be difficult, but that we can do it. This year is going to feel difficult—a lot. But, we can do it. We can do it! How we do it will be different from a regular school year, but we can do it--successfully.
Safety is always at the core of what we do as a school. Each year has its own set of challenges. This year, there is a new challenge with the pandemic. Continually, we rise to challenges as a staff, so we know that while this year is different, we can do it! We know that this year will have starts, stops and many changes—but, we know we can do it!
As always, our children are a wonderful blessing that we treasure and continue to be the core of what we do. We promise to care for them in the same manner that we would desire for those we dearly love. Keeping everyone safe during this “temporary normal” is expected and welcomed. Your safety and comfort are also our top priority. If there is anything you need this year, remember we are here and happy to help provide you with everything you need to be success.
For the children—and YOU!,
