Student Learning Opportunities

Dear Families,

Through this difficult time, we encourage you to value your family time together and take advantage of the many teachable moments that can happen outside of a classroom. Play games, do home projects, have deep conversations and most importantly take care of each other.


If your family is looking for some academic learning opportunities we want to support you. Our local Area Education Agency has shared some "At Home" resources that parents can easily incorporate if interested. We've incorporated some of these links below and will update them weekly. If these opportunities are not appropriate for your child with a disability, please contact us and we will support you.


The resources listed below are NOT required. They are optional activities for your child to explore at home.
