A Resource for Families

DEAR FAMILIES

What a unique time we are in. We recognize how incredibly difficult this situation is for many families. The Reedsville team has been working hard to identify meaningful instructional activities for your child to do while he or she is at home for an extended period of time. Our goal in this work was to provide you with activities that are aligned with what your children typically do during the school day, recognizing it will not be the same as being in the classroom, but everything should be familiar. We worked to provide enough materials for each child to be engaged in academic enrichment and learning. We are shifting into sending new material home with our next round of pick-ups. The 4K-4th Grade will pick up the week of April 27.


This newsletter page will serve as our "Landing Site." This page will be used as a place where you can access all the instructional activities. We will be updating the links in this Landing Site one week at a time as needed. Classroom teachers will be sending out a weekly reminder with the link to the Landing Site.


On the Landing Site, you will find "Buttons" to your child's grade level and then to links with the daily instructional activities for each day. In each daily plan, children can start with the first activity and work their way down through the list. We worked to write the directions in "kid-friendly" language so children can be relatively independent as they work through the activities.


We certainly know there is a lot going on for families right now and recognize you may not be able to complete all of the activities given in a day....that is completely fine! Our intention is just to provide you with resources to keep your children actively learning, prevent regression, and get some new information to them while they are not coming to school.


If your child experiences any frustration, please feel free to have them discontinue the activity or make adjustments to it. For some of the reading components, links have been given so your child can listen to the text if he or she needs this extra support.


If your child receives additional services, such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, or counseling, there are links provided on the Landing Page where you can access information about how to keep your child engaged in activities that will support their development in these areas.


To support you in this time, you will also find links with resources to help you talk to your child about COVID-19 and to help ease their fears.


We appreciate your partnership as we navigate this unknown territory together. Please feel free to reach out to any of our staff members through e-mail if you have any questions or concerns along the way.


With Great Appreciation,

Announcements Moved to Facebook....

Due to technical issues, I have decided to complete announcements LIVE at 8:00 each morning, Monday-Friday. It is a great way to interact with me and even say hi! The great thing about this is that the live recording is posted to my timeline and can be watched when you have time. I hope you enjoy the live feed!

BOOK FAIR - 4/22-5/6

The EL/MS is running an online book fair. This takes the place of the in-person fair that we typically have each spring. You are able to preview the book fair and starting Monday, you will be able to purchase books. If you spend $25, the order can be shipped to your house. In addition, money spent through the book fair goes toward the Reedsville account and allows the school to purchase classroom and library items. Enjoy the book fair!

Resources for Families

The Reedsville School District Pupil Service Team worked on this excellent resource for parents and students. There is a lot of valuable information, contact information, and how to keep yourself mentally and physically healthy. Take a look at this. Thank you to the team who took the time to construct this great resource!
