Hello Odyssey Families!!!
As our time comes to a close, I find myself doing even more reflecting than normal. The 2019-20 school year is certainly not ending the way that any of us had anticipated when we started our journey in the fall. However, we accomplished so much together before school doors closed, AND after through distance learning. I want to thank every parent, grandparent, and family member who partnered with Odyssey in any way during this difficult time. We are grateful to you all for helping your child(ren) to stay engaged with learning in whatever capacity you could. Every little bit helps, and we at Odyssey want to say, “Thank you!”
There are many end of the year traditions and routines that are going to be different this year. For one, we will be mailing your child’s second trimester report card, third trimester grade level standards covered through distance learning, a yearbook (if ordered), and for our 5th graders their Odyssey certificate of completion to your home/mailing address. Also Mr. Oxner, our dean of students, is putting together daily videos this week that will be posted in your child’s Google Classroom. As you watch the videos this week, reflect on all the good things that happened this year as we say, “Good-bye” for the summer. There is even a special ‘Step Up Ceremony’ featuring our very own Captain Can! We hope you enjoy these videos our last week together via distance learning for this school year.
Before I close, I just want to give a few updates and reminders:
As our school district works on planning for next year, please keep watching for information on the school district webpage, Blackboard Connect messages, and of course our School Dojo page. Thank you for staying engaged with us all year!
Have a wonderful summer!
Principal, Odyssey Elementary
