Laramie Letters 5/20

 In Branding

Hello Recker Families!

Happy last week of school. I cannot believe that is already that time! While I am broken hearted that this is the way we have to part this year, I am confident that this difficult parting will make coming back together that much sweeter. I am SO looking forward to hearing the students in the hallways and in the classrooms. They are the reason that we do what we do and I cannot wait to get back to normalcy. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your support, love and kindness that you all have shown through this truly historic time.

Here is a link for a quick video as thank you to you as parents from staff members. Please click on this link

I will still be sending Laramie Letters throughout the summer. I am going to touch base with updates on campus. However, please know that I still work through the summer and am here for calls, visits or emails!

With my love, Mrs. Laramie

Summer Happenings

  • If you drive by the campus, you may see a ton of construction on our well-loved “back building”. It is getting a “Willmeng facelift” and will be housing our beautiful Montessori classrooms as well as 5th and 6th grade. I can’t wait to show you the process throughout the summer!!!
  • We are very excited that this summer we will be updating our EnVision curriculum to the latest edition. This will include the portal that you have become accustomed to over the Covid-19 home based instruction as well as student workbooks. We are so thrilled with the investment in our student’s math education!

Beginning of the School Year Next Year

We are looking forward to having students back on campus for the 2020-2021 school year. We are waiting for direction from the Superintendent of schools, Kathy Hoffman, so we can hear what the state is recommending for reopening.

If you are not comfortable sending your students back in, we are excited to announce that we will be continuing our Home-Based Instruction platform for the 2020/2021 school year. This online instruction platform, will be another San Tan “experience” that families can utilize. If you would like additional information please contact me.

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

2-3Tuesday May 19th
4-5Wednesday May 20th
6-8Thursday May 21st

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.
