Community News from R. H. Conwell – 4/16/21

Dear Community,

It’s hard to believe there is snow on the ground in mid-April! What a start to spring break! The faculty and I would like to wish everyone a restful week and let’s hope for some sunshine and warmer temperatures during the week off! We look forward to seeing you all on April 26th!

Message from Nurse Sam:

This is just your friendly reminder that if you are traveling out of state during April break, please inform the school to discuss return to school protocols. Receipt of test results or completion of quarantine will be required before return to school. Please see our travel advisory document (linked below) for further information regarding this. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in keeping our community safe and healthy. Please reach out to me if you have any questions, I hope you all enjoy your April breaks!

A Message from Jessica of Pumpkinhead Photography:

Happy Spring R. H. Conwell Families! I am so excited to be asked back for annual school portraits. I will be at the school April 28 for group photos and portraits, as well as the 29th for any absentees. There will be a retake day scheduled in mid-May as well. While it may not be the fall weather we are used to, I know we will still be able to get some great pictures of smiling faces to remember this school year. As always, this is a fundraiser for your PTO and a percentage of sales goes directly back to your school.
