Greetings Platte Geddes Elementary Parents, We are pleased to announce that we will once again be offering "Summer School" for any child in grades K-5 through our CARES Act or Covid 19 Relief resources. We are accepting student referrals from teachers and from parents. We will once again offer these classes in Platte (at the school) and in Geddes. If you would like your child to receive one-one or small group summer services, please reply to this email letting me know or call me at the school. If your child is enrolled in Title I services, they will automatically be referred through our Title I program. Once we receive all student referrals, we will match the students with a summer school teacher, and those teachers will contact parents to set up a schedule. Our services will run from Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, August 5. Each teacher will set their schedule with you; allowing them as teachers and you as parents to set a schedule that works for both of you. Last summer we were able to provide summer services to more than 85 Platte Geddes Elementary Students! I have heard positive feedback from many parents and teachers regarding the benefit of these summer services for our students. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our summer school program. Thank you, Jennifer Knecht Elementary Principal/SPED Director Platte-Geddes School District

The Good News Call today goes out to Zana Zephier. Zana was nominated by her teacher, Mrs. Patzlaff. Mrs. Patzlaff stated that Zana has been doing great work in school. She comes to school with her work all done and ready to turn in. She has read her assignments and contributes to class discussion. And she even chose to miss a portion of her recess yesterday to have her IXL's done before heading home. Her awesome schoolwork and attitude are truly something to celebrate. Keep up the great work, Zana!
