Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are in the home stretch! 4 days and counting until winter break. Winter Break is December 21st through January 1st. Students will log back into their teachers’ Google Meet on Monday, January 4th. There also will be NO MEAL SERVICE on days when schools are closed due to weather, holidays or other breaks.

This is a reminder for Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Third Grade students who are part of 3GG and on a RIMP. The parent meeting for the Third grade Reading Guarantee is on Thursday night December 17th. At the meeting, we will explore more information, answer your questions and show you a special site that will have some wonderful resources for you to use with your child to ensure that they are successful at being on track by the end of the school year. In the attached flyer there is a Google meet link to use to come to one of the three meetings. You only need to attend one of the meetings. The times are  5:30, 6:00 and 6:30 pm 

Here are some important items before we sign off for break!

  1. Even though we are learning remotely, attendance is still the same when we are in school. Teachers check attendance twice a day. Please call your child off when sick, family emergency, doctor’s appointment, etc. We have several students who have met the truancy criteria per the State Department of Education. This will move into a legal piece if not remedied.
  2. Your child will finish up their I-Ready diagnostic in both reading and math. They must complete independently .
  3. Next, please remember our online expectations. Students cameras should be on. Teachers will also be reaching out to parents where students have their cameras off during class.
  4. Don’t forget to pick up 2 items in the main office, math volume 2 and art supplies for art class. 5th graders have a special bag to pick up from their teacher.
  5. PTO will let me know when they will be at Ritzman for parents and guardians to pick up Santa Shop items. As soon as I hear, I will make another call.

Here are a few quick announcements.

  • After Hours support will NOT be available over the winter break. They will restart after hours support on January 11th.

  • Make sure your children are taking good care of their Chromebooks over break and reading books from Benchmark Literacy, Sora and InfoOhio. All of these are apps on their APS portal.

FINALLY,

I wish you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

If you need anything, please email me with any questions at imcintos@apslearns.org or call Ritzman at 330-761-7903. 

Love Ya!
