Weekly COVID-19 Update from Mr. Eichelberger

I love working with middle school students. They’re old enough to have an educated conversation with you but not so old that they think they have all the answers. They are the perfect age to be introduced to what I like to call “truths for living.”

Please see the attached letter from Superintendent Eichelberger for a COVID-19 update.

Beginning Monday, January 4th, the middle school, and high school will return to in-person learning in an A/B format (same as before Thanksgiving), and the elementary will be in the M, T, Th, F, format with Wednesdays being distance learning (the format we planned to use after Thanksgiving).

Intermediate band members performed and recorded a virtual holiday concert last week in lieu of their traditional winter concert. Band is directed by Mr. Steve Sharp.

We want to encourage our children to be joyful givers and to reap the benefits that one experiences when giving selflessly.
