2021 Virtual Grandparents & Grandpals Day Is Online
We are excited to share the 2021 Grandparents/Grandpals virtual video and photos here. Please feel free to share the link with all of our Grandparents/Grandpals. We know that everyone will be richly blessed as you watch the video and look at the photos and please know that we look forward to having a live performance in 2022 on our campus. Additionally, for the Grandparents/Grandpals of our Kindergarten through 5th grade students, you should receive packets with completed craft projects and/or activities for each of you. Some of you will receive the packet directly from Providence via mail and others will receive the packets from your families – depending upon information provided in FACTS. Again, we so appreciate all of our families and their partnership with our school. Have a blessed day.
We currently have three Covid-19 positive cases. Please partner with us to have your student arrive to school with their mask every day. We are currently providing over 350 masks a week to students who forget to bring one to school or to those that break, get soiled or lost throughout the school day. We are monitoring the students who repeatedly need a mask upon arrival and potential action may be implemented for those who come unprepared. Please have your child wear a mask to school and keep one in their backpack as a backup.
We have implemented a new policy when students have 3 consecutive absences/virtual attendance. The student will now be required to provide a doctor’s note to return after 3 days of virtual attendance or absence. Doctor’s notes are STILL required when your child arrives late to school due to an appointment per our student handbook. We appreciate your partnership and we are praying for all of those who have been affected by COVID-19. Covid-19 Info Webpage

4th Grade Wax Museum
Over the last few weeks, the 4th Grade students were busy working on a biography research project on a famous historical figure. Students research a person, write a biography report, and “be” the person in a living wax museum. The culminating part of this project is an amazing Wax Museum where students dress up as the person they have learned about and stand still, like a Wax Museum, until someone walks up to them and presses their button. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to do this in person but are creating a video instead. The video will be finished soon. Learn More.

Parents Guide to Technology
Please take the time to read over this helpful Parent’s Guide to Today’s Technology. There are some really helpful thoughts and tips promoting the healthy use of technology for us and our children. We encouraged our students this week with this clip about oversharing and our digital footprint. It’s so important to know that what we share online doesn’t disappear; we have to really think about what we may post before we send anything digitally.
