Hello Recker Families!

I hope you are well! This week is teacher and nurse appreciation week! I wanted to take this time to thank all those who are teachers, both former and current, for you service to the children of this country. What you do is makes a profound difference in the world. I also wanted to thank all who are nurses, both former and current, for your amazing service to our communities as a whole, especially in light of the current situation.

Rocks of Love Project

We thought it would be a fun at home project for the kids this week in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week- to fill our ” choose joy” garden with rocks of love for the teachers.

As many of you may know, the teachers are currently not only teaching, but cleaning out their classrooms and their sweet students’ items. By filling the garden with color and positive messages it can be a way to show how appreciated they are and encourage them during these difficult times.

(AND, I have to add because our Art Masterpiece ladies reminded me- make sure you seal your rocks with modge Podge or a clear coat of some kind so they stay beautiful for a long time!)

Student Supply Pick Up Instructions

I wanted to send out instructions on how to pick up your child’s personal affects. Our teachers are diligently bagging your student’s belongings in brown paper bags. Starting at 10 am on the following days, the bags will be placed outside the school on the green bags next to gloves for your convenience.

GradesDate of Pick Up
K-1Monday May 18th
2-3Tuesday May 19th
4-5Wednesday May 20th
6-8Thursday May 21st
Remaining BagsFriday May 22nd


As you can imagine, there are quite a few bags being placed out. If you have multiple students in different grade levels, my recommendation will be to arrive on Friday to pick up your bags as the remaining bags from the week will be put out then.
