Cambridge Elementary School Update: 9/14/20-9/18/20
Dear Mighty Cambridge Families,
We realize how difficult the distance learning has been for everyone. Many of you are sharing your struggles with this structure. We are hearing that parents are very overwhelmed. We hope we can support you and want to get back to school as soon as possible. Please know that we understand the challenges each student is facing while they are trying to learn remotely. We appreciate all of your efforts and support.
We want to thank our wonderful PTA for organizing and sponsoring our virtual APEX activities this year. Many of you had fun exercising and learning about character development and keeping ourselves healthy. The PTA is collecting pictures of students participating in APEX, please send your pictures to the PTA Facebook page.
Celebrating Heritages and Cultures:
This year we will be celebrating our diversity and heritages. The intent of this is to be inclusive and represent all of the Cambridge students. Therefore, if we have left out your heritage, please email Ms. Nader, so we can add it in. We do not want to leave anyone out. Hispanic Heritage Month officially begins on September 15th. We want to celebrate and recognize our Hispanic/Latino students and families. If you have pictures of your Hispanic family or traditions to submit to our Facebook page, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit them directly to the Cambridge Facebook page.
Each month we will celebrate the amazing heritages and cultures that make up our Cambridge Community:
