End-of-the-year videos and a wave before summer!

We shared A LOT of smiles throughout the year in kindergarten! I put all of our photos into a video for each class. These are the videos I shared at our Google Meets yesterday. If you were unable to join us, you’ll want to check out the video for your child’s class. Enjoy seeing all of those adorable smiles! 🙂

On the last day of school, the staff usually stands out front and does “the wave” as the buses pull away and the students celebrate their first moments of summer vacation. Since we are not able to do that in person this year, here’s a virtual wave (below) from Conestoga Elementary. Have a SUPER-TERRIFIC SUMMER! We can’t wait to see you in August!


Our kindergarten smart cookies continue to make me proud with their excellent work!

Drive-thru to pick up student belongings

We would like to invite all of our families to enjoy a drive-thru visit to Conestoga to pick up your child’s belongings on Tuesday, May 26th. This will include yearbooks if your child ordered one. Students in grades  K-2 may pick up their belongings between 1:30-3:30 and grades 3-6 may pick up their belongings from 3:30 to 6:30. We realize that many of our families have multiple students at our school and will need to pick up all their belongings at one time. Please email Mrs. Ragland or your classroom teacher with the names of the children and when you think you will be able to do a pick up, and we will group belongings together.  If the grade level time does not suit and you need to come at a different time, just let us know. 

Please realize that we need to organize this event so that we can get everything to everyone without creating a traffic jam.  Please also use this time if you need to return items to your teachers or the school. As long as you are staying in the district your child may keep the school computer. If you are moving out of the district please return it on the 26th.

Here are some safety guidelines for our drive through pick up:

  • Follow all traffic patterns and/or traffic cones.
  • Please stay inside your car and a staff member will hand you the bags.
  • We ask that the person lowering the car window to receive the bags be wearing a mask, as our staff will be wearing masks too. 
  • Depending on the traffic behind you at the time, please be mindful that conversations will need to be brief.
  • Remember that we are smiling behind our masks.
