Community Resources From ISD
March 13, 2020
Dear ISD Community,
As we continue to work out the details about the services we can provide during this long-term school closure, you can expect to receive a series of communications from us beginning early next week. We know that there is great concern for the welfare or our students, families, staff, and community members. As we work to address nutrition, childcare, and emergency learning supports, please watch for surveys to help us assess the scope of needs for services in our community.
If you need assistance immediately, following are a few important community resources. We are in the process of compiling additional resources and will share them as we all work to support each other in these unprecedented times.

Epic Reading for Kids!
Class Code: yvq3799
I am full of joy because of...
...the wonderful work and effort of all P5 students this year!
...the Clark community of students, parents, teachers, staff, and administration who have supported each other throughout these months of online learning.
...the opportunities we have had to stay healthy and safe and to show care towards each other.
As we enter this last few weeks of 5th grade, I truly have bittersweet feelings and memories. This class of students was so special to be around each day and had such a sense of community during our time in the classroom. They grew academically, emotionally, and socially by leaps and bounds throughout our first two trimesters. This final portion of the year was difficult in that we couldn't be together physically, but I felt able to watch so much of their work in progress that normally I'm unable to see. I know this was in no way ideal, but the online learning has given me a broader perspective and enabled my own growth as an educator.
I am hopeful that we can find a way for me to physically see these amazing students when it is safer and feasible. I know they will embrace middle school, along with its opportunities and challenges, with excitement and determination to do their very best. I wish nothing but the best for you all!
As always, please be sure to email me if you have any questions or just want to check in. Have a healthy, peaceful, and positive summer break!
June 15th - June 19th
This week's learning plans are attached to the announcement section below. This is the last week of new learning and required, graded activities for report cards. It is important to finish all Zearn, Lexia, and Seesaw activities that are assigned this week, along with those sent back for revision along the way.
Middle school teachers will expect students to independently read and follow ALL directions, check teacher websites regularly, keep planners updated, and know what assignments they are responsible for. Practice now to do all of these things this week and feel confident that middle school with be a successful time!
I know EVERY STUDENT in P5 is ready to do this and then relax for the summer! I will miss you all!
