First Grade Orientation
Dear West End Families,
I am both excited and anxious to begin what will most definitely be a school year for the history books! This year our priorities are mental health, what is often referred to as SEL (social emotional learning), physical health (mitigating the spread of COVID-19), and instruction. Our students will engage in either remote (green) or in person (gold) instruction. So much has happened since we last saw one another in March, and when you enter the building this year, it will look very different.
Things that we used to do like sitting side by side, sharing classroom supplies, holding hands, and playing with gym equipment, we will no longer be able to do for now. In order to stay safe, we will have to socially distance ourselves at all times in all places in the building. Just because we have to be safe, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun! We will still try to have good old West End fun in new and safe ways!
It is important that you know that just because we have to wear a mask daily and give each other space to be safe, we are the same staff of Superstars who taught, loved, and cared for your children before COVID. My staff and I have been working day and night on daily operations and ask for your patience, flexibility and understanding as we determine the best ways to educate your children under these unique circumstances. Plans for daily operations are fluid and are subject to change for improvement, so look out for home connection communications often.
Remember that West End is the home of the Champions, and with a Champion’s mindset, success will always be an option, under any circumstance!
Looking forward to an interesting and unique year!
With warmest regards,
Dr. C. S. Lee
