Links to Learning

We hope you and your family are enjoying your Sunday afternoon.


As promised, we are sending out our Learning Links on Sunday at 3:00 to provide parents some additional 'review and prep' time for the upcoming week before their own work week begins on Monday morning. We hope you find this helpful. Keep in mind that tomorrow, Monday, April 13 is a student holiday. Lessons begin again on Tuesday, April 14.


With Pathblazer being launched last week for reading/language instruction we hope your students are becoming familiar with the program and enjoying it. We have heard from parents that their children enjoy it and that it is meeting children where they are at in their learning in order to promote continued individual growth. Your students will find that it is similar to our the math support application they have been using called Dreambox.


Please know... We will work together with you to help in any way we can. If you have any questions or need to touch base, please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you and your children. We are here to help all our students be successful.


REMINDER: As we work together during this time our Mathews staff may reach out to visit with you. As they are calling from their personal lines, when you receive a call it will show the number is blocked or a 'Private Line', much like when your doctor returns a call. Thank you for accepting these calls. Our teachers are available to respond to your emails Monday through Friday, 9:00-11:00 a.m. and again from 1:00-3:00 p.m. (Except of course for tomorrow as it is a school holiday for our teachers as well.)


With grace and trust in one another we are 'All-In' this together.

Take care of you and yours and in so doing, we take care of each other.
