Willie Brown Academy Insider
April 3, 2020
Thanks to all for showing us patience and grace as we learn to develop distance learning for our scholars. I am so proud of WBA teachers who have taken on this challenge and are continuing to connect with their scholars. Please let your teacher know if there is anything needed!
Hoping to see everyone back sooner than later. In the meantime, stay healthy!
Please give YOURSELF and your KIDS grace during this period of distance learning. We are all doing the best we can!
