Kindergarten and pre-K students at Northeast Elementary School got to see their teachers one more time at a socially distanced materials pickup and celebration during the week of June 8. 

Families drove up during designated time slots – pre-K classes on Monday and Tuesday, and four kindergarten classes each day Wednesday through Friday – to keep gatherings small. The occasion was festive with balloon towers and music, and many families decorated their cars. 

Teachers and aides, donning face masks, returned items to students that were left in school following the closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as report cards and moving-up certificates. With the reconfiguration of the district for the 2020-21 school year, both groups of students will attend Northwest Elementary School beginning in September. Northeast will become a full-day pre-K center.

To keep their minds sharp over the summer, teachers also provided students with resource packets in English language arts and math, along with workbooks that hadn’t been completed as the district switched to distance learning to during the pandemic. The youngster will also continue to have access to a wide array of online learning resources. 

Principal Dr. Pauline Collins also greeted families and wished the students the best of luck as they head to Northwest. She also thanked her teachers and staff for their hard work over the last three months in continuing to support and educate children in the remote learning era.
