Mrs. Karen Ballowe

Thank you families for your patience and support during this time. I appreciate all of the hard work you are putting in at home and love hearing about what you're doing. I am here for support, so please continue to let me know how I can best support you. As you may have heard, our school will remain closed through May 1. We are now planning on returning to school on Monday, May 4. 
In the next few days, teachers will be putting together learning packets for students to continue learning from home. Drive thru pick up times for materials, as well as lunches, will be announced early next week. Please know that our staff is working hard to support our families, and we thank you for your patience as we work collaboratively to make the best of a difficult situation.
Working in groups you created some awesome art work on the Friday before school closed. :)
