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.

Eric Litwin performs at Green MeadowEric Litwin, the best-selling author of the original four “Pete the Cat” books and “The Nuts and Groovy Joe” visited Bell Top, Genet and Green Meadow Elementary Schools this week. At each school, Mr. Litwin strummed his guitar, sang songs and told stories to captivate the students.

Eric Litwin performs at Bell Top

Best-selling author Eric Litwin performs at Bell Top Elementary School on Thursday.

Amidst the silly and fun sing-alongs, Mr. Litwin – who is a former teacher – stressed the importance of reading.

“I want you to know that reading is the single best thing you can do for your brain but you have to do it because you love it,” he told students at Genet Elementary School. “Your brain makes no distinctions between Captain Ahab from the classic Moby Dick and Captain Underpants. Your brain does not care which captain it is. It just wants you to read and be happy. So my advice to you is read and be happy.”

Mr. Litwin signed books and performed at Genet and Bell Top on Thursday and at Green Meadow on Friday.

Special thanks to the PTOs who sponsored these performances!
