Next week's work will be available on it's Learning on Monday morning. Don't forget to check out the other courses that your child has access to-PE, Art, Music, Library and our Parr page.

In this S'more, you will find videos for each day of the week with the morning announcements if you would like to start your student's day with these. You can access them from this S'more or from our Parr it's learning page. We will also have a Workout Wednesday video from Coach Henderson.

Don't forget our technology department has a helpline that is now available for any issues you may be having! The number is 281-284-0500. They are available M-F from 8:00-4:00.

From Nurse Burke

Hello everyone! Below are a few links full of great information on cloth face masks, and how do get essential errands done in the middle of a communicable disease outbreak. Several of my friends and neighbors have been asking me about using cloth masks and about the best way to go to the grocery store, etc. I direct them here. Feel free to share with your family and community as well. We are all in this together!

This link has CDC recommendations for everything from grocery shopping, banking, and to going to the doctor.

This link from the CDC is all about cloth face masks… how to wear them, when to wear them, and how to clean them properly after you use them. There is even a few tutorials on how to make them.

Let's read a book! Resources to keep students reading (and listening to stories)

Ms. Woodson has been hard at work updating the Parr Library Its Learning Page. Continue to check there for new and updated resources! (You can access it via the Parr homepage)

Take a Break!
