Dear Prairie Wind Families and Friends,
On behalf of our Prairie Wind Staff Team we wish to extend our sincere appreciation for the incredible efforts of students and families over the last nine weeks during our remote learning experience. Your continued partnership and support for learning during such an unprecedented time and one that we clearly could not have anticipated or planned for was exemplar. We realize how difficult it was for our families to manage “home learning” experiences as well as juggling work tasks and staying on top of ever- changing circumstances. We are so proud of our students- their efforts were remarkable!
As plans are underway for a path forward for next fall, I know the district will continue to work closely with our county health officials/team and our Department of Education in devising a re-entry plan for students and staff. Re-entry plans will be created with the health and safety of students and staff as the primary consideration.
We certainly recognize that additional supports may be needed to assist in the recovery of such a unique experience and you should have received information within your report card mailing regarding fun summer learning activities to assist with reading and math practice during our summer months. We have also designed a Summer Academy Support for students who may benefit from more individual supports during the early weeks of August and your child’s teacher will have made contact with you for further details.
As we approach August, please know that your child’s classroom placement will be shared with you as we have done in previous school years. You will receive a welcome call/email from your child’s teacher prior to our usual start of the year activities. I will be working closely with the new Prairie Wind leader/principal to ensure a smooth transition plan and that the incredible successes of PW students, staff and families continue onward.
Finally, I am most grateful to our entire school community for the amazing opportunity to learn, grow, and share with each of you. My experience with your children, and with you as families, has been a most humbling, rewarding, and treasured opportunity that will always remain with me in my leadership journey. Your kindness and generosity are reflected within each of your children and the leadership they display each and every day!
I look forward to the continued successes of Prairie Wind in future days ahead! Enjoy your summer months and know that I speak for our entire PW staff team when I say how much they are looking forward to students’ return in August.
My Very Best,
Prairie Wind PTO
