Dear parents and families,
 
This week, we will begin Phase 3 of Distance Learning (May 4-29). In this phase, we will continue to make learning experiences as effective as possible from a distance. We are currently working on a strategy for families to return library books and materials to school and gather any of their personal belongings from classrooms.  As we plan and develop the ways that we will approach this, we still have questions that will require additional guidance from public health. More information to come in the following weeks.
 
Over the past two weeks, our students and YOU have rocked our BEXLEY THANK YOU CHALLENGE.  Last week students thanked our police officers.  
 
We had a “Moose Sighting” at our home on Friday, thanks to our PTO who organized a sign and balloons in our yard in honor of Principal’s Day. Who ever knew there was such a day? What an awesome thing for you to do! THANK YOU!
Check out our Moose Sighting: https://youtu.be/mJVXK58kEkA
 
Have a wonderful week!  We are so thankful for all that you are doing to support your kids in our distance learning experience.

Remember to embrace the moment - chaos and all.

My best,

Melissa K-L
