PERSONAL ITEMS
Thank you to those who responded to the request to pick up items left at school.  If you do not hear otherwise from your teacher, please plan on a curbside pick-up on Tuesday, June 16, 9:00 -11:00 AM. 
 
CHROMEBOOKS
Chromebooks that had been checked out from in March may be kept at home to use for summer learning. 
 
Food and Nutrition
The district is aware that the impact of CoVid19 is widespread and is affecting our communities.  Even if you did not before, you may now qualify for free or reduced lunch as well at the temporary P-EBT card providing up to $365 per student.    To apply, FIRST complete the lunch application at MySchoolApps and then the EBT application https://ca.p-ebt.org/ 
 If your child has been receiving free or reduced lunch at school already, you may have already received this one time P-EBT card.
All students are now eligible to receive free sack lunches at designated locations.  Please visit the website at https://powayunutrition.com

SCHOOLYEAR 2020-2021
If your address changes after you have registered, please notify Joni right away.  We will require a new Residence Verification Form and   two proofs of residency to verify your address.  If you will not be attending Sundance for the 2020-2021 school year, please contact us as soon as possible.  jgilbert@powayusd.com   
These updates are very important as we move into planning for the new school year.
 
ZOOM MEETINGS
Classroom Zoom meetings are no longer “optional”.  Students are expected to attend each of the teachers’ meetings.  They are  listed on the Sundance Website Google Calendar.  No need to go to the calendars tab, simply scroll down to the announcements.  https://powayusd.com/SDES
 
MESA VERDE ASES
If you are a current 5th grade parent who is interested in a before or after school program, you are asked to complete an online interest form for ASES for the 2020-2021 school year. The survey link will also allow MVMS to express interest in the ASES program at other PUSD middle school if MVMS is not the intended middle school for 2020-2021.

sundance shutdown support page
A fun way to share ideas is to join the Sundance Shutdown Support group on Facebook!  Again, this is not administered by the school but provides some connection and fun activities during this time.

By importing this calendar to your phone you will automatically have the most up-to-date information at your fingertips.

NEW SUNDANCE INSTAGRAM PAGE 
We have a new Instagram Page to go along with our Facebook page it’s: sundanceelementary (all one word.) We have about 35 followers but mostly K parents. We’d love to get some other grades involved. This page will focus more on classroom activities vs. whole school.
 
SUNDANCE PARENT FACEBOOK PAGE
Some Sundance Parents have created a Facebook Page to help build more community within our school.  This group is not administered by the school in any way but provides a chance to connect with other Sundance Parents: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1456800417734747/
