Our virtual learners will be taking a MAP Fluency Assessment on either Wednesday or Thursday 1/20-21/2021 at 1:30pm. The choice will be yours so please be accessible to help your kiddo log in to the "NWEA Testing" app on their iPads. (Pictured below) The log in will be different this go around, you'll need your child's email address. If you don't know it; you can always ask your classroom teacher for it and we'd be happy to give it to you.

As always, our Zoom links, classroom schedule, special area schedule, and additional learning apps can be found on our Homeroom Blend page.

Reminder: Our goal for each student is to be on Imagine Learning (can be found on Blend) 10 minutes a day totaling 50 minutes per week.

Both classes will have a virtual library session Thursday 10:50am-11:15am. The links will be dropped on Seesaw.

A copy of our schedule is linked below and on our Blend page.

It will be really helpful if your child has a pair of functioning headphones. We have a few kiddos whose headphones "don't work".

If you absolutely need anything at all, please don't hesitate to shoot us an email. We're more than happy to help. :)
