Sunday Announcement 5/3/2020

Great Evening Parents

This is Principal Jowers with a few announcements concerning our school, Eno Valley. 

Teacher Appreciation Week

Parents, this week is a very special week, it is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Our teachers work extremely hard to make sure they can provide our scholars a quality education. Even during these unprecedented times, many of our teacher are often putting in 10 hours or more, per day to communicate with families, go into neighborhoods to provide materials, support our food distribution at Eno Valley, and complete their ongoing weekly zoom calls.  Make sure that you reach out to your scholar’s teacher to let them know that you appreciate them.  Also, please record a short 15-20 second video with your scholar expressing your gratitude for their teachers.  Please email the video to me at Jason_jowers@dpsnc.net.  We are planning to share all videos with the teachers on Thursday of this week.

Report Cards

Teachers began contacting parents on last week concerning report cards.  All final report cards will be distributed virtually this week.  There are several options for how you can receive your scholar’s virtual report card.  If you do not here from your scholar’s teacher by Tuesday, May 5, please contact our main office.

Phase III Packets

Phase III instructional packets are being sent home this Thursday to all of our scholars lacking internet or device access.  All other scholars are expected to continue visiting the grade level Weebly websites to complete virtual assignments.  If you do not receive a packet by next Wednesday, May 13, and you do not have internet or device access, please contact your scholar’s teacher and we will try to make the necessary arrangements to support you getting a packet.

Grab & Go Meal

We are continuing our distribution of Grab & Go meals this week on Monday and Thursday from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM.  The Grab & Go Meals are open to everyone in the Durham Community, so please spread the word.  There are lots of fruits, vegetables, meats and other food items that will help you save on grocery shopping and figuring out what to cook for dinner.  Please take advantage of this opportunity.

We have placed the link to sign up on our school website.  (Families can sign up on our form here (English and Spanish): https://support-bullcityschools.netlify.app/ )
