K-8 April E-Newsletter

Hello everyone!

It is so exciting to feel the seasons start to change and to feel that we are heading in the right direction with Covid-19 here in California. A huge thank you to everyone for all of their efforts to maintain physical distance, wear masks and to get vaccinated. Working together will help us to see the other side of this challenging situation. Please keep it up!

Now that Mendocino County has moved into the Red Tier, we here at the Pacific School have been working hard to modify our schedule to get students together for in-person learning as much as possible. When we return to school after Spring Break, our TK-Kindergarten students will be in class five days a week, and our 1st-5th grade students will have in-person learning three days a week. We are very excited to welcome our 6th-8th grade students back to campus for in-person learning two days a week. With the change in weather, the warm days feel very festive, and our in-person days have been a lot of fun. I look forward to discussing our new in-person schedule with everyone at our Family Forum next week on Wednesday April 7th.

I am very excited to announce the opening of the virtual Gualala Arts in the Schools exhibition on April 16th. The theme for this year's exhibition is "Staying Connected in the Time of Covid-19". Please make sure you check out the show and admire the amazing work that students have created.

On another note, I know that some parents have been asking whether or not we are going to have a yearbook this year. We will be taking student pictures during our in-person days. Your child's teacher will notify you when their class is scheduled to be photographed. If you have photographs of your child learning from home, please send them to me at torenick@pacificcharterschool.org so that we can document this past year of Distance Learning and Outdoor Education.

If you haven't already filled out enrollment forms for your child for next year, please do so as soon as possible. We appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to everyone returning next year.

Lastly, please be sure to fill out our latest family survey. We truly value your input and use it to guide the decisions we make at the Pacific School. Your opinion matters!

Take care everyone. Happy Spring. Peace!
