We made it to the end of this unusual school year! Please take a moment to read through all of the information in this newsletter. It will be a busy last two weeks of school. We will have a few events coming up including our Ms. Murphy’s Cherrywood Olympics and our 5th grade Promotion Celebration. In addition, we will have our last Materials Distribution Days for each grade level the last week of school. The schedule is published below.All of the online resources that students have access to will be available to your child until at least July 31st; most of them will be there all summer long. It would be great for students to engage in their online learning resources over the summer to be ready for school in the Fall. There is something called “summer learning loss” due to students not keeping up with their learning during the summer. By doing something as simple as reading for 20 minutes a day or practicing your math facts for 20 minutes a day, you can ensure that your child will not experience summer learning loss and will be ready for school in the Fall. Lastly, I know many of you may have questions about next school year. While no one knows for certain what it will look like at this point in time, I want to assure you that we are working on behalf of our students to make sure the educational opportunities in the Fall will meet students’ learning needs best. Our hope is that we will be able to have a full in person learning model five days a week. Keep an eye on the BUSD website during the Summer for the most up to date information on school opening in the Fall.
THE LAST MATERIALS DISTRIBUTION DAY
will be held the last week of school. Please bring back all your school books! If you have found Cherrywood library books at home, we'd appreciate it if you could return them too. All students who have a HOTSPOT will need to return it to the school too. All students who have a Chromebook will be able to keep it over the summer. The onlyexception is for families who are moving outside of the district and ALL 5th graders; if your child is in one of those groups, you will need to RETURN your Chromebook.
