PICTURE DAY is coming soon!! Check out the attached flyer from Geskus.
I write to welcome you to a new school year filled with endless possibilities for your children in every aspect of their learning!
This summer, social emotional learning groups will be offered through the district at no cost to families. Please use the registration listed on the flyer to express your interest in these programs. The groups will meet at the Thomson School and registration is available on a first come first serve basis.
The attached flyer explains the themes for each day. Of course, participation in each theme is always optional. We hope this is a fun way to unite our Sargent Sharks as we prepare to close out the 2020-2021 school year.
This year has been challenging for our entire community. But throughout this pandemic there have been many silver linings. As we move forward towards a new year our students and staff have taken time to reflect on their successes, and to take time to plants seeds of positivity. It is said that "difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations!"
