School News You Can Use!
What a fabulous first full week we have had at school! Considering we have only been in session for seven days, our students are making amazing progress in developing routines and following classroom structures. It's hard to believe that it's only been seven days!
Reminding ourselves that we are only in our seventh day of classroom instruction is important. Many of our teachers are doing what's best for our students by continuing to modify and change anything they realize isn't working. That is what good teaching is! It's thinking on our feet and working creatively within our plans. We continue to appreciate your patience as some initially shared information may change based on the needs of our students and families.
Lastly, we want to stress how truly grateful we are to have such wonderful parents as our partners during this busy time. We know that at home, you may be working with challenges that seem overwhelming at times and please know that we are here to help you in any way we can. Have a safe and relaxing weekend!
