Dear CSPK8 Family,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! As we begin this school year, I find myself reflecting upon how last school year ended. The Corona Virus (COVID-19) disrupted teaching, learning, and our world as we knew it, forcing us to close school doors in mid-March. The closure of schools and non-essential businesses were inconvenient, but necessary to help keep us safe and healthy. Despite school closures, teaching and learning had to continue, causing us to quickly adopt an eLearning model.
Amid this sudden and drastic change to our everyday lives, we pulled together as a community and supported one another. I’m proud of the way we worked together – of our effort and energy. COVID-19 has made a great impact on history and may have forever changed education and our way of life. As a community, a TEAM - we demonstrated that we could conquer any obstacle that came our way – our collective strength was revealed!
I am thrilled to welcome each of you to this new school year! As we continue to adopt and embrace the eLearning model, I believe that we can meet and exceed the goals we have set for ourselves. As a staff, we are still committed to providing high-level, engaging instruction as we motivate and encourage our students to learn and grow – academically, socially and emotionally. I look forward to our wins and the celebrations to come! I love and appreciate each of you, I’m proud to be a part of the CSPK8 community!
