    Dear CT Families,


    My Top Three Moments of the Week (at Virtual School)

    1. Joining the 3rd grade for their “virtual” Star Party! Thanks to our fabulous Mrs. Van Zante and Mrs. Bowen for giving up their Friday night to make this memorable event happen!
    2. Learning a Japanese Mochi clapping game with Ms. Lelake and Ms. Zanotto’s 4th grade class.
    3. Zooming with Loma and Lakeside 5th graders as they asked their great questions to our panel of CT experts!


    End of the Year

    In order to provide adequate time for our teachers and staff to close down classrooms, and collect and return materials, while also meeting socially distancing requirements, our last day for Zoom meetings will be Tuesday, May 26th. All students will attend their core classes that day, so that teachers can bring closure to the year (see special schedule below). 


    Although May 26th will be the last day for Zoom, school is NOT over! This time is intended to provide student with the opportunity to complete any missing or late assignments and submit them to their teachers.  All work should be submitted by the end of the day on Monday, June 1st.


    During the week of June 1-4, students and families will be provided with a scheduled time to pick up their personal possessions and classroom supplies, as well as return any borrowed items (library books, textbooks, etc.) to the school.
