Crothers Connection Newsletter

Crothers Families,

    Happy November! We have made it through the 1st Card Marking and the first few weeks of hybrid learning. I am extremely proud of our students. They have successfully followed the new safety procedures. I have included this information in this newsletter. Please continue to review it with your students.

    I would like to draw your attention to work completion. Many students are struggling to turn in work. Both online and in person students are not finishing their assignments. Academic work is how students can demonstrate knowledge learned during classroom lessons. Our staff is available to support students both online and in person.

    Our situation is different from the Spring of 2020. Students will be held responsible for their learning and the completion of assignments. To move forward, especially during these times, we need to work together to keep the focus on student learning. Contact your students teacher if you need support regarding your student’s academics.

Sincerely,

Matt Provost

Principal
