Welcome 1st grade families!
How will the end of the school year be handled?
New instruction will continue through Monday, May 18th.
Starting on Tuesday, May 19- I will post review and enrichment lessons daily through June 2. These lessons won't be graded, but can serve as continued learning for your child, if you so choose. Again- there's no obligation to log on starting on May 19th if all of your child's assignments are completed.
I will send each parent a message on May 19 to let you know of any outstanding assignments, or to confirm if all of your child's work is accounted for.
Students who haven't completed assignments through May 18th will have this time through June 2 to finish and submit work. Chromebooks will be collected closer to the end of the school year. More details about how this collection will occur with be forthcoming from administration.
Collection of Paper Packets and Textbooks
Parents will be able to come into school on May 27, 28, and 29 from 8 am to 3 pm. Dr. G. asks that you please enter through the kindergarten doors. Please remember that masks should be worn.
Boxes will be in the kindergarten lobby to collect the following materials:
-A box will be for library books. If you had your library book in your desk, I have already placed it in this box.
-A box will be for learning packets.
This includes both the packets that some students are doing now instead of doing online assignments, as well as the Days 1-8 packet that were to be completed in March. Please be sure that your child's name (and my name) appear on the front of the packets.
-A box for the Reading textbooks.
If your child has me as his/her teacher for Reading class, you should have 2 Reading textbooks to turn in. (Volumes 1.4 and 1.5) You may have a "Sleuth" reading book to turn in, also. Envelopes will be available so you can label the child's name so we can account for any outstanding books.
-No Chromebooks will be collected during these days. More details about this collection will be forthcoming from administration.
Opportunities for Summer Learning
If you'd like your child to keep up with their learning through the summer, they may still access Happy Numbers practice (by logging onto Clever) through June 30th.
In fact, they can access different activities on Clever at any time this summer...including, Brainpop and Splash Math! There's no obligation to do this, but I wanted to let you know that it is available and accessible on most devices like smartphones and tablets.
Additionally, Epic, the book app from Mr. Minteer, will continue to provide free access through June 30th.
All of these are optional opportunities that you may choose to use- or not. It's totally up to you if you'd like to use these.
I want to extend a very big thank you for all that have helped their child continue their learning. This process wouldn't be possible without your support and help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
