Kramer Enews 5/21/21

Posted on: May 21, 2021



This will be the last E-News for the 2020-21 school year. 


Thank you to the students and staff at Kramer in both the remote and face-to-face learning platforms for this school year.  The students and staff were able to navigate through a tough year.  I think everyone learned something new and learned how to be problem solvers.  Thank you for your patience, flexibility, and perseverance!

Thank you to the parents, grandparents, and other family members that made this year a success, we could not have done it without you.  You were teachers, caregivers, school bus drivers, and wore multiple hats.  Everyone worked hard and wanted the best for each other.  Thank you for all of your support.


5th Grade Clap Out

Our 5th graders will take their traditional final lap around Kramer.  We have modified the path to allow for parents to stand on the bus loop outside.  Our plan is to begin at 2:45 and parents are welcome to line up on the bus loop along the walking track.  Our 5th-grade team will share out more information next week.


Last 3 School Days- Early Release Dr. Theroux

As in previous years, TSD students will be released early on the last three days of school. Below is the schedule for all of the buildings.

Elementary: 3:15

PTG School Supply Orders for 2021-22

New for the 21-22 school year, the Kramer PTG will be offering the opportunity for Kramer families to purchase a ‘School Supply Kit’ that comes with (almost*) everything on the school supply list!  You’ll save time by not having to hunt down the right school supplies, and support the PTG at the same time!  Deadline June 30th.

Hotspot Collection- Mr. Rand

If your student is NOW attending school in person, but you were issued a hotspot while the district was hosting remote learning, we will begin collecting hotspots from just those students that are now face-to-face.


You may return the hotspot to your child's school, in the main office.  We will mark each student down as we receive the hotspots back.


If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
