A Note From Ms. Sickler
I have been inspired by John Krasinski’s Some Good News and the last page of this week’s read aloud, “look with kindness and you will always find wonder”, to be even more intentional to look for the good… even during these very challenging and trying times. May all our Harvest students emerge from this pandemic learning what really matters in life.
As we continue with distance learning through the end of the school year, I want to recognize your efforts and thank you for your partnership. Our Harvest staff all know that what you are doing is not easy. Hang in there with us for the next couple of weeks! We are currently planning some fun end-of-year celebratory virtual activities for the last week. We’re almost there!
Let us know how you are doing and if you are in need of anything. Please take a moment to check-in with us HERE.
Each week our elementary specials teachers will be sharing some ideas for you to create, sing, move, innovate, and read. Check out this week’s newsletter HERE.
Third Trimester Report Card Update
We want to thank all of our families who have worked together with our teachers and staff to provide continuity of learning during this crisis. We encourage you to continue your efforts to support students with distance learning as much as possible. We recognize that this has not been an easy time for many of our families and so appreciate all that you have done to help provide some level of normalcy for our youngest learners.
Due to the COVID-19 school closures and the suspension of face to face instruction, Elementary level (K-5) report cards, and IEP progress reports will not be issued for the third trimester of the 2019/2020 school year.
While we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, please know we are here with you and for you as we continue to grow and learn together!
Message from Superintendent Graden
At Saline Area Schools, we believe one of the best ways to prepare your children for an increasingly complex society is to listen. That means giving you opportunities to share your honest feedback and not shying away from what you have to say. It means holding ourselves accountable when you tell us about an opportunity for improvement or growth. And, it means digesting your feedback and acting upon it in a way that will benefit everyone in the SAS family.
That’s why it’s critical we hear from you in our Distance Learning Feedback Survey, which launches Monday, May 18th. The survey asks for feedback on your and your student’s experience with distance learning during the coronavirus pandemic. We will use the results to continue making meaningful decisions in our schools.
