K-8 February E-Newsletter

Hello everyone.

I want to start off this month and say a huge thank you to all of our families that have been helping out with school lately. Thank you Jessica Price for spearheading the amazing PCCS hoodie/t-shirt fundraiser. It has been really amazing to see all of the PCCS pride out in our community. I know that my hoodie has been keeping me warm and cozy during these cold and wet winter days.

Another huge thank you I want to send out is to Jody Rose and Aisling, and to Cassie Henderson and Griffin. They came last week to help us prep the location for our new outdoor classroom, and put a fresh coat of paint on the fence in the backyard. The structure will be arriving in the first week of February, and we will need more help from our families to get it installed. We will announce another volunteer day when it arrives. Remember, many hands make for lighter work! Thank you for your help.

Here at the Pacific School, we are doing our best to be informed of the constantly changing guidance on the Covid-19 pandemic. We are listening to sources at the federal, state and county level and are committed to bringing students in for in person learning when we can do so safely. At this time, outdoor learning is the safest option, so we are planning on increasing our in-person learning to two days per week for our k-5 students. Your child's teacher will keep you informed about when the new in person days will begin.

Lastly, thank you to everyone for your stamina and perseverance with distance learning. Please remember to communicate with the school if your child needs to miss a Zoom class. Additionally, students will do best on asynchronous assignments if their parents are following up and making sure that assigned work is completed. I know that it is challenging for everyone, but you are all doing a fantastic job. This is an unprecedented time, but I feel confident that everyone; parents, teachers and students are doing their very best. As we move forward, we will continue to meet everyone where they are and to help our students rise to their potential.

Take care everyone. Stay safe, healthy and warm. Please reach out if you need any support. We are here to help. PEACE!

-Mr. Todd
