Pleasant Avenue December 2020 Newsletter

December Newsletter

Hello families,

Thank you for participating in parent teacher conferences.  Communication between you and your child’s teachers is an important part of educational success.  We have some fun activities planned for the month of December.  The second virtual literacy night is scheduled for December 8th at 6:00pm.  Please use Mrs. Cotter’s morning program zoom link to join us at the December literacy night and find out who the guest readers are this month.  Students will be participating in winter activities throughout the month of December.  JEPTA is hosting an additional virtual literacy night on December 17th.  It is important that we continue to wash our hands, wear masks, and follow all other COVID 19 protocols.

I hope that you enjoy the holiday season.  I am grateful to work at Pleasant Avenue with our dedicated teachers, staff, and great students and families.  I wish you a safe, healthy holiday season.
