Dear Bryant Families~

As we are moving further into the year, it is extremely important to be checking on completed work, lessons posted on remote days and communicating with teachers and staff about work progress, concerns or struggles you may be having with lessons. This can be done several different ways. You can check in with the classroom teacher via class dojo, email or a phone call. You can also have your student show you completed work either on TEAMS/Clever or class pages. There are many ways to see the progress and work completed as well as celebrating student successes. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are all in this together!

Reminder of Audio on TEAMS

This is a friendly reminder that when your child has his or her microphone on, any sounds in the home can be heard. As your students are meeting remotely with their teachers and other staff, it is important to try to limit background noise. Please try to monitor what is going on in the background of these meetings as well as monitor the language being used during meeting times. If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
