Friday, December 6th will be a student holiday to allow time for parent-teacher conferences.
Mrs. Harris, Mrs. Hall, Mrs. Lenz, and Mr. Brennan pose in front of the school banner with Ag in the Classroom Grant Award documents.

A big thank you goes to the Virginia Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom, who awarded Mrs. Hall (pictured here with Mrs. Harris, Mrs. Lenz, and Mr. Brennan) a grant to fund a hydroponic gardening project with first and third graders!

Students plant vegetables and taste them in pre-K.

To celebrate National Farm to School Month, the students in Ms. Rosenberry's class have been planting vegetables and talking about where their food comes from. Children tasted carrots, described their texture, and started their own container gardens so that they can watch their crops grow firsthand.

First graders celebrate the return of fall with the scarecrows they made in class!

Receive Connect 5 Information to Multiple Email Addresses and Manage Phone Numbers by Setting Up a Parent Portal Account

Want to receive this newsletter to multiple email addresses? Not receiving calls to certain phone numbers? Click the above headline for a solution!

Over the summer, our student information system, PowerSchool, went through a significant upgrade. One of the changes affected how contact information (phone numbers, email addresses) is stored in PowerSchool, which, in turn, impacted how Connect 5 pulls this information. We have been made aware that some of our families may not be receiving emails to primary, or multiple, email addresses, or possibly calls to certain numbers. These issues can be resolved by setting up a Parent Portal Account in Connect 5. To do this, you will need your child's school ID number to complete the process. Just follow the detailed steps on the attached document. If you previously created an account, it's possible that you need to associate your child to the account, or you may need to update your contact information. The document will walk you through those steps as well. If you have any issues creating or updating your account, please contact your child's school.
