Greetings Park Terrace families!
It’s crazy to think this is our final newsletter of the year. This year has flown by and been filled with lots of learning (for both students and staff), emotions and a strong sense of community. As I reflect on my first year as principal at Park Terrace, I can’t help but feel incredibly proud to be part of such a supportive and loving school community. We have gotten through some tough times together because of each student, family, and staff member’s commitment to each other. I can’t wait to see the amazing work we will do together next year.
As we wrap up the year, I hope families have had a chance to connect with your child’s teacher for an end of year conversation. You have learned a lot about your child as a learner during extended flexible learning and we want to hear your input, as well as your child’s. Teachers will also let you know during those conversations whether or not your child has been referred for summer programming. It’s not too late to schedule time to connect!
Summer programming is being offered in a variety of ways including a combination of face-to-face and online learning, as well as an online only option. Programming will run from June 22 through July 23. The face-to-face portion of the programming will take place from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., with varying combinations of days of the week. Transportation is provided for the face-to-face portion, and breakfast and lunch will be served. If your child was referred to summer school by their teacher, you will receive a call from someone to get them registered.
For families wanting some enrichment options for their child this summer, we will be offering some online-only, fee-based enrichment opportunities beginning in July. More information on the options will be communicated with families the week of June 22nd.

We know there are many unknowns and questions about the 2020-2021 school year. Planning for a variety of possible scenarios has begun. We continue to plan for school to resume Tuesday, September 8. We will update families this summer with status on the situation and our planning. Watch for those updates the weeks of July 6 and August 3.
In the meantime, we wish our families a fun-filled, restful and healthy summer. We look forward to seeing you all in the fall.
