5-1-21 Harris Creek Family Message

Good Morning Harris Creek Family,
I apologize for the length in between principal memos, however, since the district started sending frequent messages out, I chose to not bombard you with the same information. 
Everything is going very well with the students back at school daily. We have adjusted to the many changes and so have the students. Our Harris Creek students truely are the best students ever! They bring so much joy back into our school building. We have continued to welcome students back into the building from Virtual Academy throughout the year and have around 60% of our students back in daily. 
21-22 Virtual Academy
As a reminder, the last day to register for 21-22 Virtual Academy is tomorrow. I will tell you that our Virtual Academy numbers are MUCH lower for next year. Less than 10% of our students are requesting to remain on Virtual Academy. 
If you are planning to sign up for Virtual Academy or want to learn more about it for next year use the link below. Remember registration closes tomorrow at 5pm.
Teacher Appreciation Week is this week!
Our teachers have been hard at work day and night preparing for instruction, grading assignments, answering emails, Dojos and Remind messages. If any of you have your child's Google Classroom set up on your phone, like I do, you also probably wake up to alerts of new assignments being added at 12am, 2am, 5am. I'm not sure our teachers ever sleep! 
Please take the opportunity this week to thank your teachers for showing up for our children, being their educator during a global pandemic, providing flexibility with the many changes between teaching remotely, teaching in person, teaching remotely again, new students joining classes, even if for only two weeks during quarantines. Harris Creek Teachers have been rock solid during this year and have probably all faced the most challenging year of their entire career this year. Help us show them some love and appreciation. 
Ideas: Snacks and drinks, handwritten notes or drawings, gift cards for coffee, restaurants, or groceries, restock classroom supplies, add to their classroom library with a new book
Here is the PTA daily theme for how they are supporting Teacher Appreciation. You will read more in the PTA announcements below.
