Dear Little Bear Families,

I’m very relieved that our week of online learning went really well thanks to our Teachers being prepared, our Parents picking up materials, and our Students participating so well! I hope we never have to do that again, but I know it was necessary under the circumstances with the low number of Substitutes available in our district. I’m hoping our staff members and students have had time to heal, and we are looking forward to seeing almost everyone return healthy on Monday!

We all want to express our thanks to all of our Parent Volunteers who have stepped up to support our school! We’ve already had several great experiences that we could not have done without you, including a Star Gazing Night with 1st grade, off campus Field Trips with several grades, and Educational Nature Walks with several grades. Ms. Hite has the Volunteer forms available in the front office if you would like to join us for any future events! Thanks so much, and please see our attached Event Calendar for more opportunities. Remember, those dates/times are subject to change, and we will keep you informed of any additions or changes via our Classroom announcements and Newsletters. We are looking forward to seeing parents soon at our Parent/Teacher Conferences and for our Costume Parade this month!

Please know that it is our goal to publish this monthly newsletter on the first day of each month or on the closest school day to the 1st; however, we apologize for the delay this month caused by having to reschedule many October events due to the week of online learning. Thank you for understanding. We want you to have our most accurate and updated information in each publication.

Warm Regards,

Lurleen McCormick
