We are so excited to celebrate the end of the school year with our DLA family! What a year it has been! We will provide lunch and some games! Please bring a blanket to sit on for our picnic lunch. It looks like it will be hot! Please bring extra water for your family, sunscreen, and appropriate clothing if we can get some sprinklers going for the kids.

Being the Guide on the Side and FINISH STRONG

Now that you are all veterans to distance learning, you realize the importance of being the guide on the side for our young students. Depending on the rigor of the task and or learning presented in front of them, completing the task may be very challenging without prompting and support.


Even us adults need prompting and support when completing a task that is more challenging or when there is a task that is not necessarily fun to do, but we have to do it because as adults it is our responsibility. Our students are the same.


So here are some helpful takeaways:


  1. Be present in the morning and review with your child their schedule for the day.
  2. Be present as they get logged in to Calvert and start their daily learning.
  3. Make sure your child understands the directions and can complete the necessary tasks. This is when you may have to provide more or less prompting depending on your child's understanding.
  4. Make sure your child knows how to contact their teacher.
  5. Make sure you know how to sign up for In-Person support when you do not know or can not provide the prompting and support your child needs.
  6. Be present in the evening to ask specific questions regarding the activities the students went through to check for understanding.

READ 20 MINUTES DAILY!

Have a wonderful weekend and remember no school on Monday,
