        Dear Nance Families, 

        It is hard to believe that we have reached the final month of the school year!

        I want to say thank you to all of our students, parents, families, and community partners for their support and perseverance through this school year. It has been wonderful to see all of our students back at Nance for in-person learning throughout the year, despite the challenges posed by COVID surges throughout. With our community entering a new phase of the pandemic, we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to many of our traditional end of year activities this year!

        We are looking forward to welcoming parents and families to Nance to celebrate the end of this school year during the month of May. More details will be announced about each of these events as they draw closer.

        • Pre-K End of Year Celebration- Tuesday, May 24th, 10 AM (Nance Gym)

        • Kindergarten Promotion- Wednesday, May 25th, 9 AM (Nance Outdoor Classroom)

        • 6th Grade Promotion- Wednesday, May 25th, 11 AM (Nance Outdoor Classroom)

        • The last day of school is Thursday, May 26th! Summer Learning begins Monday, June 6th.

        In addition to these events, we are planning to revive our Red Carpet Awards program as a classroom-based ceremony this year. Many classrooms also have field trips scheduled between now and the last day of school, so watch for notifications from your child's teacher for more information!

        I hope everyone has an amazing summer!

        In partnership,

        Tyler Archer, Ed.D.
