You did it!
It's important your child have a "learning environment" at home. Ideally it's the same place each day and his/her learning tools are at hand. Some students benefit from headphones to help minimize distractions. Having an "I need help" signal allows you to know when to lend assistance.
Remember, if you get stuck the Remote Learning Resource Center can help. You can also submit a ticket if you need additional help. The links are below. We are also always available to help!

Social Emotional Learning (SEL)
We know there are times that emotions get the best of us...even grown ups. Our goal is to equip students with strategies to make the best decisions during these times. Mindfulness goes hand in hand with SEL. Friday afternoons will also include this component of our approach to nurturing your child.
One way to think of it is as CARES:
Establish new relationships, maintain positive relationships and friendships, avoid social isolation, resolve conflicts, accept differences, be contributing members of the classroom and school communities, and work productively and collaboratively with others.
Take initiative, stand up for ideas without hurting or negating others, and seek help.
Take action and follow through on expectations; define problems, consider the consequences, and choose positive solutions
Understand others’ states of mind and emotions, be receptive to new ideas and perspectives, appreciate and value differences and diversity in others, have concern for others’ welfare even when it doesn’t benefit oneself or may come as a cost to oneself.
Recognize and regulate thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to be successful in the moment and remain on a successful trajectory.

Census- don't forget to do your part!
The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.
The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.
It's also in the Constitution: Article 1, Section 2, mandates that the country conduct a count of its population once every 10 years. The 2020 Census will mark the 24th time that the country has counted its population since 1790.
