Weekly Update from Mr. B.

Hello Farnsworth Aerospace PreK-4 Families,


I want to remind all families that we need your child participating in their Google Meets everyday. Each day your child has scheduled Google Meets with their classroom teacher. This is a great way for your child to connect with other students and their teacher.


Last week, I started creating daily morning announcements. Students in Grades PreK-3 will receive the announcements in Seesaw and 4th grade students will receive the morning announcements through Schoology. Please check in with your child to make sure they are watching the morning announcements. If you have ideas for the morning announcements, send me an email or give me a call at 651-293-8675.


Have a great week!


John Bjoraker
