Message from Mr. Childers November 29, 2020


Hello Parents,


This is Tom Childers contacting you from Antioch Elementary. We are officially in the midst of the Holiday Season. Please take a moment to think of those less fortunate. Our school will once again partner with the Monroe Kiwanis Club to host a canned food drive. Please send items into school November 30 - December 3rd. Donations may be dropped off at the front door or in the cafeteria.


Our third grade students will take the CoGAT this week. Face to Face students will take the assessment on Thursday and Virtual students will take the assessment on Friday. Parents of Virtual Students should complete this form if you plan to bring your child on Friday for the assessment. Many families have already completed the form and do not need to complete it again. All safety protocols will be followed.


This week our third, fourth and fifth grade students will have the opportunity to participate in their classroom Spelling Bee. Winners will be declared no later than Wednesday, December 2nd. Your child's teacher will communicate the date for his/her classroom Spelling Bee. Virtual classrooms will have the opportunity to participate as well, however students must report to school on the day of the classroom Spelling Bee to protect the integrity of the process. All students will be screened in accordance with our safety protocols. Virtual students will NOT be mixed with face to face students. Please be reminded that participation in the Spelling Bee is optional. Antioch Elementary will hold the school Spelling Bee on Thursday, December 10th @ 9:00am. Classroom winners will participate in person with social distancing guidelines observed. Teachers, Students and Parents will have the ability to watch the contest virtually as our school will stream the Spelling Bee. Students must be present on the day of both the classroom and school competitions if they wish to participate.  The Scripps National Spelling Bee 2020 - 2021 School Spelling Bee Study List is attached to this email.
