A message from the Principal
Hope you all had a great 3-day weekend and a wonderful week of learning! Thank you for all that you are doing to help your student(s) in their learning each day. You ARE doing a GOOD JOB! Thank you for working with us, especially this year, to encourage, motivate, and support your student's learning!
Parents, we would like to make a request about classroom live lessons. If you have a question or comment for the teacher during the live lesson, we respectfully request that you contact the teacher about the concern/question either by email or through a message via classDojo, Bloom, or other communication platform that the teacher has established. The live instructional time with the teacher is very precious and it is important to limit distractions that take away from the learning for all students. If you have a technology question or concern, please contact the HelpDesk (see info below) rather than ask the teacher during a live lesson. We absolutely want to help you and teachers want to answer your questions while at the same time protecting instructional time.
As always, please don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. We are happy to provide assistance in any way that we can. We are here to help!
