Principal Bi-Weekly Message

Hello Shorewood Families

The weather has been so yumm!.  Hoping you and your family have been able to get out and enjoy it.  A little fresh air will help all of us finish the school year strong.  Here’s some important information that will need your attention:

  • All families will receive an email from our district today with a survey that ALL families must complete online.  Our district plans for a full reopening of school this fall.  The survey will ask families to commit to returning to school or, for those that still have health concerns, staying in remote learning.  We expect ALL families to complete the survey.  Please be on the look out for this email.  The survey is due May 27.  There will be an informational webinar about all fall options on May 18.  Use the following link to learn more about Fall, 2021 options and for zoom links to the informational webinar:
  • Did you know we have over 200 books from our school library that have been checked out for over a year.  It’s time for all of us to look under our beds and in our closets!!  On Friday, June 4, Ms. Gasamis and the PTA will be hosting a drive by event at school for families to return any checked out books AND for students learning in our online classrooms to pick up their FREE Shorewood t-shirt.  Stop by any time between 9:15 am and 6 pm, except during arrival and dismissal times (11:00-11:30, 1:30-2:00 and 3:45-4:15).
  • This summer, Shorewood will be a host for our district’s summer school program.  And, there will be summer school options for all grades (current 5th graders would have their summer school experience at Glacier Middle School).  The first session is June 28-July 15, Monday through Thursday, from 8:30-12:00.  Please consider signing up for this in person learning experience.  There is a second session from July 19-August 5 at other elementary sites that our students are welcome to attend.  The link to the application was sent out in last week’s family email and is also located on our district website.
  • Our district was able to get devices to all students to use during 20/21 school year.  Students will keep their devices during the summer, except those that will be leaving the district.  These families will need to return their devices to Shorewood between June 17-June 25, anytime between 7 am-3 pm.

Have a great weekend.
