Weekly Announcements 9/14

Good evening Phoebe families,

I hope you had a chance to rest and relax on your weekend. This will be our first full week of Distance Learning. I appreciated the feedback that I received from families regarding how your child’s first week went. Our staff is working very hard on meeting the needs of our students. There may have been technical issues that were out of our control but teachers, students and families were able to problem solve and work together. Thank you for your patience.

One thought I wanted to share with you is that this pandemic has affected all of us in unique ways. I read a quote this week that stated that we are all in the same storm; however, we are all driving different boats. Being sensitive to the specific needs of our students and families is our focus here at Phoebe. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or myself if your child is in need of support.

This month our social-emotional learning (SEL) theme is Collaboration. I have attached a family resource guide for you to read as your children are learning about this in their classes for the month of September.

Mark your calendar for September 30th. That will be our first Dine and Donate at Chipotle. More information to come.

Finally, please take a look at our Parent Teacher Organization’s newsletter for the month of September.

Thank you and have a wonderful evening.
