Warren Elementary Weekly Update

June 25- 29

From Mrs. Wilkins

Dear Warren families,


Thank you for working in collaboration with us to make it through the challenges of COVID-19 remote learning. You have shared a desire for closure to the end of this school year, thus teachers would like to share one last conversation with each family. Together, with your child’s teacher you have navigated home-to-school learning. To honor the partnership, you have shared with your child’s teacher, your child’s teacher will be reaching out to set up a time to share one last collaborative conversation during the week of June 1- 5.


The “Remote Review” document is a snapshot of what your child/children has learned during these past two months of remote learning. In partnership with your child's teacher you will discuss your child’s learning goals and progress. Take time to celebrate your efforts! Know that your willingness to show up for remote learning is ENOUGH. We, the Helena School District, will continue to support your child’s learning needs. Celebrate your family’s perseverance, tenacity, and all that you have navigated during this unprecedented time. We feel fortunate to work with such supportive families. Below is a blank first grade remote review document, so you can anticipate what your child's/children's remote review will look like from their teacher.


Student belongings can be picked up May 8, 9, and 10. Click the below sign-up genius link to enter when you will pick up your child/children's belongings. 5th grade parents please note that you have a separate sign up. Mrs. McNay and Mrs. Klemp will be handing out your child's end of the year graduation gifts with their belongings. If you have other children in other grade levels, their belongings can be picked up with your 5th grader's belongings.


Do not hesitate to reach out with questions.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Wilkins

Remote Reviews

As part of the conversation, the district created a document to provide a “snapshot” of where each student ended the school year in regard to grade level standards taught and assessed in the fourth quarter. Due to the “Remote Review” document being a district wide form, not all the standards on the report were taught this quarter. Teachers were given the autonomy to meet the students where their needs were, so some standards will be reported as “not measured.” In the comments section teachers will speak to other standards measured in replacement of those on the report.
