As many of you know, Ms. Barbara Furtado is retiring after 25 years of teaching students to read at LaPerche! She has been an amazing inspiration to so many students over the years and countless have learned how to uncover the secrets of the English language under her direction. Ms. Furtado brought positive energy and a love of kids to her job EVERY SINGLE DAY. We can’t thank you enough for your dedication to the students at LaPerche, Ms. Furtado. You will be missed greatly! Please check our this beautiful tribute to Ms. Furtado! https://youtu.be/mSIAOAaV66g Thank you, Kerri McMahon, for creating the video and to all who contributed. view image
Check out the Virtual Photo Project created by LaPerche Students. LaPerche art teacher, Miss Miller, challenged the students to create a photo project using the items that were most important to them during virtual learning. The project was based on the work by artist Gregg Segal. Miss Miller certainly kept the students engaged during virtual learning! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jaQyV-RmyE2itYpWLccv7yJom-SHmYAP/view LaPerche Virtual Photos--Check out the finished projects! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hlKiJbmowFomYjkzVNhAOBWqLwP06mRd/view view image
If you ask LaPerche kids to list their favorite days of school, Field Day would be close to the top for most. This year we had to host field day virtually. Each LaPerche faculty member partnered up and created an online station. The kids traveled as a class to each station and from the looks of the pictures, had a blast! Thank you to all the staff for bringing the energy and to the families for jumping into field day with the students! Virtual Field Day was a smashing success! To see all the field day photos, please check out this link: https://photos.app.goo.gl/xm1HME8AvMhFGUjF8 If you have more field day photos to share, send them to Mrs. Dorsey at firstname.lastname@example.org view image
Yesterday, LaPerche families picked up summer packages and dropped off Chromebooks and other materials. It was great to see so many families and students who we have missed desperately!! The pick up line was a great place to celebrate some of our students with perfect attendance and to reconnect with so many families!! We miss you and can’t wait to see you in the fall! Congratulations to all of our students who achieved perfect attendance. It is an outstanding accomplishment!! view image
