A Peek at the Week

September 7-11

Seesaw

Seesaw is a new app we’re using to share what your child is learning at school. Seesaw gives your child a safe space to document their learning, be creative, and learn how to use technology. Each child gets their own learning journal and will periodically add items like photos, videos, or drawings. When your child adds items, you'll be notified so you know what your child did today. Your child’s journal is safe and secure. Please scan the QR code that was sent home this week to get started. Your child is waiting for you to see their work at school. Thank you so much to parents who have subscribed to Seesaw!
