During this time of distance-learning, I will place packets of work for your child outside the school each Friday at 1:00pm. The work will be due each Friday when you come to pick up the next week's packet. Our Google Classroom will provide supplemental materials, resources and instruction to help make distance-learning successful for your child. 
 
Additionally, please visit the links I provided in the sidebar for more ideas on supporting your child's learning at home. If I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me. 
 
 
*Suggestions for setting up a work at home environment*
 
  • Have your student set up a dedicated learning space and’ calm body’ spot at home.
  • Work with your student to create a daily schedule that works for your family.
  • Have your child write/draw their own schedule and post it in your home.
  •  If you would like, send pictures of your child’s work space/completed work to your teacher to stay connected!
  • Don’t feel pressure to have your student cover EVERY subject every day!
