Welcome Back, Coyotes!
Dear Kopachuck Families:
Our theme this year ought to be “keep our eyes on the prize” because Kopachuck’s ongoing construction will require supreme flexibility. For example, during first trimester, some renovation changes include:
- The 200 wing is closed for construction
- Seven teachers will be traveling to separate classrooms
- To accommodate construction near our main entrance, students and staff will enter the building through the 100 wing
- During different phases of construction, routes to classrooms may change
The key to remaining flexible and excited will be communication with our staff, students and parents. In addition to communication, keeping our newly remodeled building in our sights will help all of us stay focused on the end goal. Lastly, our students and staff have already proven to be extraordinarily resilient during the pandemic and we will keep up our strength and optimism during remodeling, too.
You may recall our PSD Communications’ State of the District message sent to families on June 23rd, that celebrated having students back full-time, in person this fall. In addition, we’re excited to welcome a new superintendent, Krestin Bahr, whose goal is to spend at least a half-day in each school by Thanksgiving. We’re so proud and pleased to share the learning and culture at Kopa!
For example, our social studies teachers will roll out new curriculum resources. (Scroll down the linked webpage for Discovery Demo Access.) Our district engaged in a thorough process for selecting the new resources, which include add-ons such as news and current events, interactive materials and virtual field trips.
In addition, we will continue to take advantage of online and text resources that make science, math, language arts and electives even more accessible and interesting, too. Once school starts, we hope that you plan on taking advantage of Schoology and asking your child questions to hear about what students are learning.
We hope that this Welcome Back site provides you with information that you need. If we can assist you further, we include a handy list of contact information in our weekly newsletters. Please watch your Inbox each Friday, starting on August 6th.
Heidi Fedore, Principal and Nate Hudac, Assistant Principal
