  • There are many people in our communities working hard daily as essential workers during Covid-19. Let's thank them! Some examples might be grocery workers, hospital staff, gas station attendants, pharmacists, police officers, truckers, etc. Make a card for someone you know that is an essential worker and thank them for keeping us safe. Make sure to tell them that you are praying for them. Surprise them by delivering it (please practice social distancing) or mailing it to them (with your parent's permission). I'd love to see a picture of your thank you note! Have fun and be creative!


Technology

  • From Mrs. Rubel- I encourage your child to play some math learning games online. Some good websites to start with are funbrain.com, roomrecess.com, abcya.com, and hoodmath.com. These websites have games and activities that are aimed at all ability levels and grade levels, so your child can choose to review their math knowledge or challenge themselves.
