Good Afternoon Frederick Families and Students!  

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and that you all are safe and healthy!  Before we head into the weekend and April Break next week, Tenacity has a few important updates and announcements!

April Break Virtual Field Trips:

In an effort to offer our students fun activities over the break we will be hosting 4 virtual movie field trips.  This will be a great opportunity to hang out with your favorite tenacity staff members and some of your fellow classmates, whom I’m sure you all have missed!  If you are interested in any of the following field trips please respond to this email, and we will let you know how to join us virtually!

Tuesday: 12:30 PM Main Event (a 1 hr and 45 minute movie)

Wednesday: 12:30 PM Into the Spiderverse (1 hr and 56 min movie)

Thursday: 11:30 AM Zoom (1 hr 33 min movie)

Friday: 11:30 AM Race to Witch Mountain (1 hr. 38 min movie)

8th Grade Retreat:

We have heard back from most 8th grade families about whether their child will be attending the virtual 8th grade retreat next Thursday and Friday at 2pm, but not all of you!  Please get back to us soon!  This is an important event that helps your child understand how Tenacity’s program will change for them in high school, as well as give them an opportunity to meet the staff they will be working with, and meet other Tenacity 8th graders from other schools.  For those who have RSVP’d yes, more information on the retreat and how you can access it on your laptops will be sent out early next week!

Office Hours:

For those students who still have makeup work due, Tenacity will still have office hours next week during the following times.

Mr. Paxton’s Office Hours 
Tuesday and Wednesday: 3-5
Thursday and Friday: 4-5

Mr. McGurn’s Office Hours: 
12-3 on Tuesday and Wednesday

**Note: Other staff members can be made available by appointment!

Book Clubs and Journal Buddies:

Students! Bored because you can’t go anywhere for April Break?  Parents!  Need activities for your children to do next week? Next week is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your journal buddy responses and start participating in book club!  We have yet to hear from some of you, and the tenacity staff misses you all dearly and would love to hear back from you, so respond to us!  If you are having any difficulty finding your journal buddy emails or are having issues accessing Edmodo to join your book club, please respond to this email, we are more than happy to help!

Resources:

Attached here is an informational document about COVID-19 that can help you recognize symptoms, as well as some resources and groups to reach out to if this pandemic has affected your mental wellbeing.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you need help getting connected to any kind of resource!

As always, Tenacity is here to help, if you need help being connected to any resources, or need help with anything please do not hesitate to reach out to us!  We love our Tenacity family at the Frederick!

Have a great weekend and we will be in touch soon!
