Dear Parents and Guardians,

Good afternoon, and congratulations! We have made it to the finish line, and completed the final full week of remote instruction! On behalf of the staff and administration, I would like to thank you all for your time and effort in working so closely with your children during these past few months. Without you, the children would not have thrived and excelled as they have under these very difficult circumstances. We are excited to offer the students a final "goodbye" to the 2019-20 school year next week through one last Google meet with their homeroom teachers live from Joyce Kilmer, and their classrooms! Please be sure to look out for information from your child's homeroom teacher on the specific date and time these meetings will be happening!

With our hybrid virtual and walk up promotion ceremonies poised for next week, we would like to again invite all Joyce Kilmer families to help in celebrating our 8th grade graduates. On the evening of Tuesday, June 16th, after the 7 pm firehouse whistle, we ask you to step outside your homes with your families for one minute, and make some noise for our 8th graders! Clap, shout, bang on some pots and pans, and let our 8th graders know how much we appreciate their leadership, example, and hard work during the course of this unique and challenging school year! Feel free to record and post what you see and hear on the Joyce Kilmer Homeroom App to further celebrate our 8th graders!

The Genesis parent portal will be opening on Wednesday, June 17th for 4th marking period report card viewing. We are so proud of our students' efforts, and we are happy to share the culmination of their year's work on their report cards! As we dive into the summer months, we will be working diligently on what September will look like for our students. We will be planning for multiple scenarios always prioritizing the health and safety of our students and staff. We will keep you informed and up to date, and as always, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unknown.

On behalf of the entire staff, Mrs. Citro and myself, we wish you all a healthy, happy, restful, and rejuvenating summer, and we look forward to the fall, and the new challenges it will surely bring.

Be well,
Mr. Veit
