Remote Learning Week 8

May 11, 2020 - May 15, 2020

Dear 1B Families,

Don’t stress about schoolwork. In September, we will get your children back on track. We are teachers and that’s our superpower. What we can’t fix is social-emotional trauma that prevents the brain from learning. So right now, we just need you to share your calm, share your strength, and share your laughter with your children. No kids are ahead. No kids are behind. Your children are exactly where they need to be.


With love,

All the teachers on planet Earth

1B Weekly Zoom Sessions

We will continue our weekly Zoom session on Wednesdays at 5-6pm. This week, we are hosting a DIY (Do-it-yourself) Day! Please have your child bring anything they've created, including art, toys, origami, necklace, food or drink, and more - as long as it is something THEY MADE THEMSELVES. Click on the link below to join (meeting ID: 729-722-780, PW: 990413).


P.S. Here are some pictures from our Zoom Pajama Day Party last week! :-)

*Note: The mini-lesson will begin EXACTLY at 1:05 pm. Anyone who is late, will have to wait in the waiting room and be admitted into the session AFTER the lesson in order to minimize any distractions during learning time. Students are not required to stay for the whole hour, and can enter/exit at anytime after the mini-lesson.
