April 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome spring!  We have fully moved into our E-Learning Platforms in Kindergarten and 1st Grade.  Please check out the District Website and click on the parent link for helpful information on our E-Learning platforms.

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we continue to navigate this new learning environment. 

All field trips have been cancelled for this school year.  They may be scheduled upon our return.  If this is not possible, any money that was paid for in advance will be refunded once we return to school for the remainder of the year.

In-person Kindergarten Registration has been postponed until our return.  If you or if you know of a parent who needs to register a Kindergarten student, please contact Mrs. Costanzo at scostanzo@pittsgrove.net.  There is a link at the bottom of our website with more information on Kindergarten Registration.

Hopes and Dreams: My hope and dream for everyone is that we come out on the other side of this pandemic healthy and with a stronger resolve to do the best we can each and everyday no matter what comes our way.  We’ve got this . . .

Things to Keep in Mind:

Reflections on E-Learning: I understand that this new learning environment comes with its challenges.  Each day will have its highs and lows.  I want to let you know that you are encouraged to do the best you can.  Please accomplish what you can each day.  We are reflecting on current schedules and the implementation of our E-Learning Plan so that we can continue to improve the learning experience for students and families throughout this school closure.  If something does not get done, please reach out to your child(ren)’s classroom teacher.  The most important thing for you to do is to continue to check in with us to let us know how you are doing.  Communication is key!

Digital Etiquette:  A couple of things to consider in an E-Learning Environment . . .

  • Come to digital sessions with a positive attitude
  • Find an ideal location to attend digital class sessions
  • Refrain from eating and drinking
  • Come dressed for success
  • Most important . . . have fun while learning with your teacher and classmates

Kindergarten Registration: In person registration has been postponed.  Please see the link on our webpage for more information regarding registration.

Spring Break: April 9th through April 14th.  School Reopens on Wednesday, April 15th.  Enjoy your holiday!

Earth Day—celebrated annually on April 22nd is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for our planet's natural environment.  Show your appreciation for our Earth by wearing green for the day.  Wear green for Earth Day on April 22nd.    

Arbor Day will be celebrated on April 26th this year.  Arbor Day is a nationally celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and care. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in 1872, it's celebrated on the last Friday in April. 

A quote to consider . . .

Being challenged in life is inevitable.  Being defeated is optional.

Stay Well!
