Wow! Hard to believe we’re coming into the last few weeks of a very atypical school year! I hope you and your family have been enjoying the warmer weather and some additional opportunities to spend time outside. We wanted to share a few quick updates and reminders as we near the end of the formal school year on June 3rd in order to help keep us all on the same page.

Needham New April 27th, 2020

Hard to believe it’s the final week of April!  It feels simultaneously like the longest and shortest month on record for me! I hope this newsletter finds your family doing well, and increasingly gaining a foothold on your current “new normal.”   I wanted to share a few quick updates and also ask for your support as we begin to plan for the 20-21 school year (I know it’s hard to even fathom this right now, so thank you!).

Happy Monday to everyone! A few quick reminders to kick off your week: Attendance is now taken once per week. You should receive the attendance link each Friday. I would appreciate you taking a moment to complete this, as we continue to do our best to plan for and support all of our home-based learners. Weekly attendance is due by noon on Mondays. If you did not get the link, you can also leave a message on Needham’s attendance line by calling the main office at 970-247-4791.

Welcome to a new week! I hope this email finds you doing well after the weekend. I don’t know about you and your family, but the daily repetition and constant togetherness can be oddly fatiguing! Everyone has so much they’re balancing, and sometimes your child(ren) can’t get all of the assigned or suggested work done. This can lead to the whole family feeling a bit frazzled. We get it! Take a deep breath, it’s okay. If you or your child is feeling overwhelmed, please reach out to your child’s teacher and we will work with you to adjust to the needs of your family.
