    Loma & CT Families,

    I know that each and every time we arrive at the end of the school year, school staff express how quickly the year has gone and how much we can’t believe it is the end. Especially this year, it’s hard not to have that sentiment. The Covid-19 pandemic has limited us in so many ways. I look forward to a return to more normal times.

    As you begin your summer break, I want to take one last opportunity to thank you-our Mountain Strong families-for everything you have done this school year. From turning your homes into classrooms, to shuttling your kids to and from with different schedules, to drive through promotions and supplies pick-ups, you all have come through to support your kids and our schools in ways that my simple gratitude cannot express. Our mountain community is very lucky to have amazing families and your school community appreciates you more than you will ever realize.

    I also want to give a special thank you to Loma Home and School Club for organizing our modified Jog-a-thon. They pulled off a great event with only a couple week’s notice for planning. The students had a great time at the event.

    Lastly, congratulations to all our 5th grade and 8th grade graduates! We are all very proud of your hard work and dedication.

    Have a restful and recharging summer break and we will see you in the fall when school resumes on August 12th.

    Screen-Free Summer Reading

    After more than a full school year connecting and learning through computer screens, we hope that everyone uses the summer to take a break from screens. But we still need kids to read over the summer to maintain their reading proficiency. Elementary teachers have shared screen free reading bingo activities for summer use. There will be incentives in the fall for students who complete their summer reading bingo cards. Parents need to initial the bingo spots as students complete the activities. Students will be able to access AR in the fall and take the appropriate quizzes for books read over the summer.
