The final weeks of the school year are in sight, and while we are still learning from home, there are some events for the Lower School community that will bring us together. Please add the following to your calendars.
Thursday, May 28 at 6:30 pm - 6th-Grade Moving Up
Friday, May 29 at 5:00 pm - ELC/Lower School Reverse Parade
Monday, June 1 at 9:00 am - Lower School Town Meeting
Tuesday, June 2 - Last Day of School
Wednesday, June 3 - Drop off & Pick up Day 1 (please see above schedule)
Thursday, June 4 - Drop off & Pick up Day 2 (please see above schedule)
On Thursday, May 28, at 6:30 pm, the Lower School will celebrate our 6th graders moving up to Middle School. This event typically takes place in school, and parents of 6th graders are invited to watch a few short videos about our 6th-grade students. This year, the event will be held virtually, so all are invited. A zoom link and additional details will be sent via email to Lower School families.
On Friday, May 29, at 5:00 pm, the ELC, and Lower School teachers will be hosting a reverse parade. We are all missing seeing the students in school, and teachers are looking forward to this reverse parade. Teachers will be on campus from 5:00 to 6:00 pm lined up (socially distant from each other) to see all of you. Parents can drive on campus, roll down windows and waive to teachers as they drive through. More details about the parade route will be announced next week. We hope you will join us!
On the morning of Monday, June 1, at 9:00 am, I will be hosting the final Town Hall of the year. All students, teachers, and families are invited via zoom to celebrate the learning and fond memories of the 2019-2020 year. A zoom link and additional details will be sent via email to Lower School families.
Field Day is a highlight of the end of the school year, and we have a plan to offer a virtual field day in the afternoon of June 1. This will (of course) be optional. Mrs. Herrmann has plans that are fun, safe, and can be done from home without any fancy equipment. Information will be sent via email to Lower School families.
Before spring break, we urged students to check out books from the MV Media Center. We knew at that time that local libraries would temporarily close, and we wanted every child to have access to books at home. It is time to return those books and any items borrowed from school. Also before the break, many students took home most or all of their belongings from their lockers. A few items were left in the hopes that students would return to campus. We will bag up the belongings of each student, including any supplies or belongings left in the classroom. When possible, we are also sending student artwork home in these bags. Every Lower School family should plan to come to campus on June 3 or June 4 to pick up items from us and drop off books and anything else borrowed from school. Please see the pickup/drop off plan above and save the date (June 3 or 4th depending on the last name of your child).
