Cluster 2 Newsletter

Week of 4/27 - 5/1

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy. We were deeply saddened by this week's announcement that we will not be returning to the WMS building this school year. However, we remain committed to providing meaningful learning experiences via our remote learning system. Attached please find the schedule for next week's remote learning. Also, please note:

On Monday, Ms. Conceison's ELA students will begin to read the novel in verse "Inside Out and Back Again". This book is available to read digitally on Epic - your children all have the class code and access to the website to join. This student account allows students to read during school hours, 8am-3pm. If you would like for your child to have access beyond those hours, please send an email to Ms. Conceison so that she can invite you to join as a parent. The book is also available on Amazon if you would like to order a paper copy for your child, but that is not necessary.

Please remember that Zoom session attendance/participation and general work completion is required to the extent possible for your family. We understand that there are exceptions, but for the most part we need to see active participation from students during Zoom sessions and in online work completion, just like we would in regular school. In a Zoom, active participation can be asking a question, contributing to the discussion, answering a teacher or peer question, responding to the chat, and showing video when at all possible.

We continue to be proud of our students for continuing to show up and do the work throughout this time. We know it's a difficult, stressful time for everyone. Please, as always, reach out if you need anything from us. We are thinking of you and missing the kids!

Enjoy your weekend!
