Start Thinking Summer!

May is here and with it comes a flurry of activities at the school as we prepare for summer break.  Typically, May is when we do many of our year end activities and get parents into the buildings.  Unfortunately, due to restrictions associated with COVID, we will not be hosting parents as part of these events.  However, field trips, fun days and other celebrations will continue so that your child(ren) gets the best experience possible as we close out the year.

As we prepare for these events and the end of the year, we need your support at home as well.  Please begin to gather materials that need to be returned to the school.  Library, textbooks, and devices borrowed from the District should be returned ASAP so staff can prepare for next year.  Now is also a good time to check on child(ren)'s progress this quarter by viewing the online gradebook or emailing teachers.  Mid-quarter is May 4th, and starting conversations with teachers early is a great way to ensure your child(ren) can make changes necessary to pass their classes.

As the weather gets warmer and more summer-like encourage your children to get outside and enjoy some fresh air.  Take advantage of the local parks and other recreational opportunities in Martin County.  The new playground in Fairmont has been very popular, as well as the mini golf course behind the public pool.  Whatever you choose to do, remember that winter will be back before you know it.

Lastly, thank you again for all of your support and dedication to helping our District thrive during this pandemic.  Things are definitely on the upswing with the availability of vaccines and easing of restrictions.  There were many times this year where we were tested as a community.  Every time we stepped up by doing our part for what is best for the kids.  Hopefully the start of the next school year will look more traditional.  Despite what next year might look like, I know we will all continue to work together, over challenges, and continue to move Martin County West forward.

All the Best,

Chad Brusky, Interim Superintendent
