It is hard to believe, but this week marks the final week of the 2019-2020 school year…..and what a year it has been. We
have faced so many challenges and disappointments in recent months, but as a community, we really came together to
make the best out of a difficult situation. Thank you to all of our staff for going above and beyond, to support students
and their families. Their dedication and efforts ensured that student learning continued throughout the school closure,
and it resulted in some outstanding work from our students. Thank you to all of our families for their patience, kindness

for our Lost and Found and student belonging pick up. We also ask that families drop off any school books that they have
at home during this time frame. This coming Friday is the final day of Distance Learning and the final day of the
2019-2020 school year!
Report cards will also be emailed out to families by the school board later this week. It is imperative that we have
updated email addresses and phone numbers for our families. If you need to update your contact information – please
email firstname.lastname@example.org The school board will also be updating families throughout the summer about what
school will look like in the Fall. This is another reason as to why it is important that we have your correct and current
Finally – to our students. While this is not the school year that you had anticipated, I wanted to let you know how
incredibly proud I am of each and every one of you. I’ve so missed seeing you at school everyday. I have had the great
pleasure of seeing your work in your Google Classrooms and dropping into some Google Meets. I look forward to the
time when we can all be back in our building together! Have a wonderful summer – Stay safe and healthy!

Create a family timeline that documents important events and memories.
1. As a family, think about the most important
events that have happened.
2. Construct your timeline using materials you have at home.
3. Write the events and the dates on the timeline in the order they happened.
4. Add illustrations or pictures to help explain the events.
