We continue to wish you and our alumni families good health, peace, and steadfastness. I would like to also thank the alumni, PTSA, staff, and students for your continued perseverance through the pandemic.
We just finished the first semester of the 2020-21 school year in this virtual environment. Cleveland teachers have done an amazing job of adjusting their instructional styles to meet all our students’ needs in this unique learning setting. Our students have done an excellent job of meeting the challenges of the pandemic, virtual learning, jobs, family stress, and isolation. We are all in this together, and united, we shall get through this storm together.
Currently, the district and the teacher’s union are in negotiations for a phased-in return to in-person learning for K-1, first graders, and Intensive Service Pathways students. High school students are not currently ready to return. All decisions will be negotiated and determined by the District, the School Board, and the SEA teacher’s union.
The sports season is set to begin this week, and follow- ing Governor Inslee’s Road map to Recovery Metrics, athletics are slated to begin in February. Our region needs to be in the new Phase 2 for competitions to take place.
Based on the information in Governor Inslee’s plan, the Metro League adopted a two-season sports model for this year only. Season 1 begins February 22 for football, bowling, girls soccer, slow-pitch softball, girls swim and dive, volleyball, cross country, and golf. Season 2 begins April 19 for baseball, boys soccer, boys swim and dive, basketball, fastpitch softball, tennis, track, and wrestling.
Cleveland’s softball team has been selected as one of the winners of the $5,000 Mariners Care Equipment Donation Grant. The organizers received over 45 applications from high schools across the state. Cleveland was one of just 10 schools to receive the award.
As always, a big THANK YOU to the Cleveland Alumni Association for your continued support; you are an integral part of the Cleveland community. I cannot wait to see what 2020-21 has in store!
Cleveland Eagles keep soaring!
