Mrs. Hladun's Tidings
We are a few weeks into distance learning, and I encourage you to review the virtual learning expectations that we shared at the start of the year. One expectation that I'd encourage you to consider relates to muting background noise. I've heard from staff and families about uncomfortable situations where classes have heard private conversations in the background with family's doctors, friends, partners, and children. This kind of background noise can be very disruptive and distracting for our staff and students. You can review the expectations here: http://bit.ly/DL_Expectations and you can learn about a few ways to mute a Google Meet here: https://youtu.be/AmUce6zrL24. We know that you can't always have your child learning in a separate and quiet space, but mute is always an option!
This Week's Most Important Thing - Believe Fundraiser
Our PTC is hosting an online/virtual fundraiser with Believe!
We've started our fall fundraiser and your involvement is needed more than ever! Money raised from this fundraiser directly impacts your child by providing education beyond strict fundamentals. At our school, our PTC supports us with classroom supply funds, library books, art supplies and campus beautification. Please know that your assistance this year in particular will make a huge difference! Take just a moment to visit www.ShopFund.com where you can easily share your fundraiser with friends and family! Thank you in advance for your participation in the fundraiser!
If you have any questions about the fundraiser, contact PTC at LincolnCrossingPTC@gmail.com.
P.S. We will hit our fundraising goal if your family sells just 10 items
