Welcome to Waverly Elementary
Indiana Department of Education A-Rated, Four-Star School!
A Letter from Mr. DuBois 5/26/2020
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend and you were able to get together with family and friends while still social distancing.
Last week, we offered times for families to drive by the school and pick up student’s personal items. If you were unable to come during those timeframes, please contact the school office and we can arrange another time for you to get those items. The last day for possible pick up will be Friday, June 5th.
To say the end of the school year was different is an understatement! I don’t believe anyone realized that when we left on Friday, March 13th we would not be returning for the 2019-2020 school year. We miss seeing the students and families. I know many teachers had Zoom Meetings during this time to help students and teachers connect visually. I had to learn how to conduct Zoom Meetings with my teachers as well. We have been meeting weekly to update one another and ask questions regarding school. It seems to change on a daily basis!
The start of the 2020-2021 school year is being discussed and planned by our administrative team with the guidance from the state. We are looking at different scenarios and how to make each one work in our specific buildings. We plan on being prepared for whichever path the governor and state superintendent recommends. I suggest we all watch and listen to the governor and state leaders in the weeks ahead to have a feel of what to expect for the start of next school year. I will keep you informed as items are developed such as when we will begin school and what instruction will look like.
I know summer is typically a time for rest and relaxation. A time to “sharpen the saw” so to say. As the stay-at-home orders are lifted and more and more people can come together, my hope is that you will find time to enjoy the things which have been limited lately.
One of the challenges we face is to find ways to prevent “summer slide” academically. One option is to provide students with optional daily practice activities that won’t take too much time away from summer fun, but still keep their minds engaged for the fall return. We have created a June and July calendar of activities for you to consider. I am attaching the June Activity Calendar with this letter. The July Activity Calendar will be sent out the last week of June. I don’t want anyone feeling overwhelmed. There is one activity per day and each day of the week is on a specific topic. For example, Mondays are math days. You will need to select your child’s current grade-level since everyone will have available grades K-6. If you feel the activity on your calendar day was too easy, then see if you can do the activity for the grade ahead of you. Have fun with this!
Finally, please know that we are preparing for the start of a safe and organized school year. We are deep cleaning the building, ordering in additional hand sanitizer, rethinking arrival and dismissal procedures, breakfast and lunch procedures, and many other concerns. We care about our students and want them to return to a safe and inviting environment. Have a wonderful summer break!
