Farrand Robocall/Email 12/5/2021



Good Evening Farrand Families and Hello Farrand Foxes. This has been an eventful week, month, year. We are thankful that our Farrand families are safe and well.

 

Safety is a priority in P-CCS schools. We will review our safety and security protocols here at Farrand with our first responders, the Plymouth Police. We appreciate your patience and support as we navigate these challenging times.

 

The Second Trimester Marking Period Begins on Monday. Parents will have access to the First Trimester Report Cards on December 15 via MiStar.

 

Blue Out-Farrand will honor Diabetes Awareness by wearing blue on December 

10.

 

A message from Our Art Teachers:

Farrand Fox parents, our young artists have a unique opportunity to design a lasting artwork at Plymouth Township ('McClumpha") Park. P-CCS students have been invited to develop a mural design for what is now a bare ground space. A particularly exciting point is that designs can be created by individuals or small groups. We see this as a great project for neighborhood friends, Daisy groups and the like. More information will be available from the Art Teachers. 

 

 

And now for District News

  • Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is applying to receive Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER III) along with accessing funding made available through an Equalization allocation (referred to as Section 11t Equalization funding). These funds are designated for one-time and/or short-term expenditures to address learning loss and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are seeking input and feedback from district stakeholder groups, including students, families, and staff members, as we develop a plan for the most appropriate use of the funds to support student learning, mitigate the impact of COVID-19, and address the needs of students within the parameters of the grant funds.

Your input is valued greatly. We look forward to sharing more information about these important funding sources, responding to questions you may have, and to hearing your thoughts, ideas and priorities for use of these funds to support student learning. Questions or comments may be directed to Nick Brandon, P-CCS Executive Director of Communications & Marketing, at nicholas.brandon@pccsk12.com.

This form will close on Tuesday, December 7 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
