Digging "IN"to Learning!

Parents! You Win!

Great job filling out the COVID-19 Self Certification App and signing your child's backpack tag every morning. We only had a very small number of parents who forgot. (It was probably the Dads) :)

If you do forget, we will be calling you to fill out the App and your child will need to wait for the App to be completed before they are allowed into the classroom.

Thanks for a great first week of filling out Apps and signing backpack tags.

Back to School Night (aka Curriculum Night)

We are excited to announce the dates and times for our Back to School Night Events.

This week each teacher has been working hard to build and record a slideshow presentation of all the information you need to know about your child's grade level and classroom. These videos will be shared with you on Monday 9/7/20. All teacher's presentations will be hosted on one easy to use website. A virtual "walk down the hallway" Back to School Night. You will be able to see every teacher's video organized in one place so you don't have to dig and find different links from different teachers. It will be a one-stop-shop for all things Back to School Night.

In addition to the recorded presentations, each teacher will have two live open house Zoom calls where you will be able to "meet" the teacher again and get any of your questions answered. Below are the dates and times for the various Zoom calls at Anderson.

Don't worry, you won't have to remember any of this, we will be sending out the Back to School Night Website that will have all the needed video presentations and Zoom call links.

Save the Date and Time so you can attend your child's meeting after you watch their teacher's presentation.
