Park Elementary Parent Community Letter from the principals - 9-16-21 -- Carta de los directores de la Comunidad de Padres de Park Elementary - 9-16-21

Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school every day! Public water fountains are not in use due to current COVID health regulations. We have had a great launch to the school year. It is a great celebration for our staff to have students back with full schedules. Over the first two weeks, I am inspired by the friendships and positive relationships our students are developing with their classmates and teachers that will lay the foundation for a terrific year of learning. Se anima a los estudiantes a traer una botella de agua a la escuela todos los días. Las fuentes de agua públicas no están en uso debido a las regulaciones sanitarias actuales de COVID. Hemos tenido un gran lanzamiento al año escolar. Es una gran celebración para nuestro personal tener a los estudiantes de vuelta con horarios completos. Durante las primeras dos semanas, estoy inspirado por las amistades y las relaciones positivas que nuestros estudiantes están desarrollando con sus compañeros de clase y profesores que sentarán las bases para un año de aprendizaje increíble.
