INFORMATION SESSION MONDAY, MARCH 1st AT 6 PM on the In-Person Hybrid Learning Option
From a newsletter sent by Ms. Alston late last week: https://www.smore.com/dmh64
Dear Pittsfield Families,
Please join us for an opportunity to discuss the in-person hybrid learning option.
A target date has been set for a return to an in-person hybrid learning option. There will be a survey shared in the coming days for families to register for their preferred program, hybrid in-person hybrid learning option OR virtual. We want to make sure that you have an opportunity to understand these two options before you make your decision.
We will host a community information session on March 1st at 6:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend, please know that the meeting will be recorded and put on our school's website at https://www.a2schools.org/pittsfield. You will hear from our team to learn more about the in-person hybrid learning option.
You will have an opportunity to ask questions. We will do our best to answer all your questions during and after the meeting. Please submit your questions in this form: https://forms.gle/2Mnx6HUT8PL2wQxU6.

Help Support Our Teachers
I hope your family is safe and healthy! We want to give your child the best education possible, and our teachers need your help. Due to the pandemic and tighter budgets, we need to raise funds for the essential tools our teachers need to help our students succeed.
In light of current events, student and staff safety has become our most important issue. That’s why we are partnering with a company that specializes in safe, no-contact fundraising. They have helped schools like ours raise more than $150 million dollars.
This safe and easy fundraiser is 100% online so there is no face-to-face selling, collecting money, or delivering products; and you will earn money for the school by shopping at online stores where you already shop. Participation only takes 12 minutes, and your child will win fun and exciting prizes. Every student will receive a valuable Wild Republic Hugger or earbuds, just for participating. More prizes will be rewarded when goals are reached. Please help now. It really will make a difference.
