Greetings North Plains Families!
I know that many of you are disappointed that there will not be an end of year celebration this year, especially for 6th graders and graduates. Please know that all of us here at NPES feel the same way! No one expected any of this to happen, and all of us truly miss our kids! There have been many suggestions as to how to celebrate, and I know 6th grade parents are still putting together a slide show to share. We will be handing out 6th grade certificates when we collect chrome books and any other school materials at the end of the year. The plan right now is to use the parking lot at Jesse Mays and have two drop off times: Wed. June 10 from 9-1, and Thursday June 11 from 5-7PM. We'll have you stay in your car as we did at NPES and you can hand us your stuff and if you have a 6th grader, you can get their certificate.
Many of you have reached out to me via email or phone with questions and concerns, but I've decided to have parent "office hours" on Thursdays for the next three weeks. Dates are May 21, 28, and June 4 at 4:00 PM. Use this link to join the meeting.
If you have some pictures of your students doing work online, or a PE or music activity that you would like to share, I would LOVE to post them to our website! Please send me photos and I'll get them up! Becky Rios
