Kindergarten Returns Full Time Starting March 1

The Board of Education has approved two changes to the instructional model: 1) Kindergarten students will resume five days a week of in-person learning starting on Monday, March 1. The Full Remote Program is still available to families. 2) Live Virtual Wednesdays will be eliminated for students in grades 1-5 starting March 10 to provide one additional in-person school day every other week. March 10 will be an in-person school day for B Day students and A Day students will have a remote day. The schedule will alternate going forward.

Red Mill South Sudan donation2Inspired by a book they read in class, fourth grade students donated nearly $400 to provide clean, fresh water to people whom they never met in Africa. The book “A Long Walk to Water,” tells two parallel stories that intersect in South Sudan where people walk for hours to fetch water every day.

Students in Misty Hayes’ class responded with a selfless act and collected donations for the nonprofit Water for South Sudan, which drills fresh water wells. They sold water droplet cutouts that were taped on the wall in the school’s entryway.

“This book led them to say, ‘What can we do as children,’” Mrs. Hayes said. “They inspired me.”
