Due to the fact that school is closed for an extended amount of time, we will be communicating with parents during virtual office hours while providing students with digital learning opportunities, so they can practice and reinforce crucial academic skills.
More information will be posted here about digital assignments and digital office hours as needed for teachers to connect with parents/students.
Below is a list of resources/educational opportunities that may be used at home:
1) Mystery Science: Click on Mystery Science and find your child’s grade level for lots of science activities. There are mini lessons for quick videos or entire lessons with hands-on activities. Feel free to email me if you need ideas for the best lessons.
2) Take Home Challenge for March. Email pictures to Mrs. Smith to put together a video of all of our flowers!
