K-8 March E-Newsletter

Hello everyone.

It is so exciting to report that our outdoor classroom is finished, and ready for students! I want to say a huge thank you to all of the parents who worked so hard to make our dream a reality. Thank you Nate, Heron, Jeff, Jared, and Jason for everything. We are so excited to be able to expand our goal of having students on campus for high quality in-person learning. We will add more in-person days as we are able. Please remember that we will be wearing masks anytime we can't maintain 6 feet distance.

Thank you everyone for all of your efforts to remain engaged with distance learning. Consistent attendance is one of the best things that we can do to keep students on track during this challenging time. Please help your child do their best to complete their asynchronous assignments and get their work turned into their teacher. Lastly, please be sure to communicate with the school if your child needs to be absent for any reason, or if you need support in any way.

Deadline for turning in work for the annual Arts in the Schools show is Friday, March 12th. Please be sure to submit your artwork to Ms. Angela by that date, so that she can photograph it for the show. Also, if you child has created any other art or special projects that you would like to submit for the show, please email photographs and a short description to me at torenick@pacificcharterschool.org. The theme of this year's show is Staying Connected in the Time of Covid-19. We really want to showcase all of the amazing work that students have been creating.

We are celebrating Read Across America Day all month at the Pacific School, by showcasing diverse authors and their stories. Please talk to your students about what they are reading and learning in their classes.

There will be no classes on Friday, March 19th for a staff development day and Friday, March 26th for a scheduled storm day. This is a great time to get caught up on asynchronous work, or to spend some time reading and exploring outside.

As our county continues to show a noticeable decline in Covid cases, it is looking more likely that we will be entering the red tier soon. At that time, we will be expanding our in-person learning opportunities to include our middle school students. I hope to send out more information as soon as I can.

Take care everyone, stay safe. I believe that this Spring will bring lots of good things. PEACE!

-Mr. Todd
