Week of April 27, 2020

Facebook-Cover-page-768x284Staff Appreciation week is coming up May 4-8. Because we aren’t physically together at this time, please consider these ideas to let teachers and other staff members know how much you appreciate them:

  • Email a thank you note to your child’s teacher (consider previous years’ teachers too)
  • Post a thank you note to Teams or Dojo
  • Kids can post teacher appreciation artwork
  • Many online retailers offer e-gift cards

unnamedDo you know a child who will turn 5 by September 1, 2020? It’s time for kinder registration! Please spread the word. The school office is closed to the public, so registration is happening online.  Questions? email grace.limon@cvesd.org

Current Finney students do NOT need to re-register; they are automatically enrolled for 2020-21. Residency Verification for returning students will be done at a later time (stay tuned). If your child will NOT return to Finney in 2020-21, please email grace.limon@cvesd.org or beverly.prange@cvesd.org

Also on May 4th and 5th we will distribute all students’ school materials and belongings. This includes materials that will help with distance learning. Parents are invited to come pick up their students’ materials on the following schedule, according to the student’s last name:
