Parent Notes

Welcome back to school! It seems like we have been away for a long time. The iPads are ready to come home on Tuesday! Please read the important attachment to my email about the procedures for care, charging, and return of the iPad each day. It is a big responsibility. Please help your child. There are informational directions in your child's folder regarding logging in to your home wifi and logging in to the internet. The student filter will be in place while your child is using their iPad on the internet at home. Their username and password is on the back of the directions.

There will be a math video to watch on the first day and a math activity to go with it. Please make sure your child has a quiet place to view the lesson and time to do the activity when their is one. Any activities should be returned in your child's folder when they are due. There will be times when the activity is done and saved on the iPad. We are working on this process at school. We are waiting to purchase a couple of apps before this process is complete. SOON! There is not ALWAYS a video each night, so review the news each day. I will indicate what is due each night on the newsletter AND in your child's Google Classroom assignment. (Your child knows about Google Classroom) I will also TELL your child when a video is to be watched at home. We have been using video lessons at school, so your child is familiar with these. Please let me know if you have further questions!

Dates to remember: We will be having our Annual First Grade Craft Day on Friday, December 12th, from 9:00-11:00 AM. Lots of volunteers are needed for the event. Sign up below if you would like to volunteer. We have LOTS of fun making crafts!
