Keppel Weekly News 11/16/20

Good Evening Keppel Parents,

Tomorrow, Monday, November 16th begins the final full week of school before the Thanksgiving break.  This week Wednesday is a school spirit day and  students will follow the normal Wednesday schedule with no live instruction or office hours in the afternoon.  Friday is a college spirit day and a MINIMUM Day so students will be done with all school activities at their lunch break at 12:15 with no school in the afternoon.

Report cards for 1st – 5th grade students will be MAILED HOME so you should expect to receive them the week of Thanksgiving.  Kindergarten teachers will be holding conferences soon as they do not give report cards the first trimester.

This Wednesday we will be holding our monthly Play with the Principals event for students who were chosen by their teachers.  Wednesday at 12:00 noon we are holding our Parent Q & A w/the Principals. Meeting link  This month we have invited Dr. Stepan Mekhitarian to share the District Stakeholder Survey results with you and answer any questions you may have. Dr.Mehkitarian is the Director of Innovation, Instruction, Assessment & Accountability 

Join us for dinner at Chipotle on Glendale Ave. on Wednesday (11/18) from 5pm to 9pm to support our 5th Grade Committee. Dine in or pickup, or order online through their app (for pickup only), but make sure to tell the cashier you are here for Keppel's fundraiser (or use code AW49LDW when ordering online) 

5th grade is hosting a virtual See’s Candy fundraiser. This is our See's Candy Storefront - Keppel.  It is active now and can be used by anybody.

Parents, please make sure you take a minute to sign our Parent/Student/Teacher Compact that you usually do in person at Back to School Night.   You can find it here: Home School Compact

It’s the season to be thankful and grateful and I wanted to remind everyone that our Gratitude Jar remains open. It has been emptied and needs refilling!  Gratitude Jar

That's all for now.  Thanks so much.  Have a great evening.
