Dear Parents,

Thank you all so much for your flexibility and willingness to help your students with their work at home during this time. We will continue E-Learning through April 30th.

Your child's teacher will share lessons via Canvas, email and/or Dojo. You can also access your child's lessons on the Greenwood E-Learning website.

Please sign in on the attendance form at the top of the lesson plans and participate in live lessons and turning work into the teacher. If there are any issues, please communicate with the classroom teacher so that we know how to best support you and your child.

This is such a hard time on all of us, please know that we have missed seeing our students this week. We hope that you have stayed safe and healthy and we look forward to filling our school halls and classrooms.

Mrs. Smith and the Greenwood Staff!

A Message From Mrs. Schweihs

Just thought I'd tweak this for GW, since I did one for MEES newsletter:) Trying to get the info out how I can :)


Quick snapshot of what is going on for BAND!


MONDAY will be a FULL GROUP practice at 9:00am

(we will touch base, go over the lesson schedule and plan for the week, and do some playing)


small group lessons on Thursday April 9th

(different times for each instrument)

Codes will go out the evening before. Look for them in the morning of the lesson via kid's GMAIL, parent Dojo message/REMIND text


The schedule will come out Sunday via parent/kid email and dojo, then is attached in the 5th grade classroom plans (very bottom), and in SCHWEIHS CANVAS COURSE (all the kids know how to get there).

I will also send a picture of JUST THE SCHEDULE that can be easily referenced!


If the kids can't come, let Mrs Schweihs know

If we can reschedule, we will! If not, submit a flipgrid.

(the BAND PLAN says which song to submit if absent)


reach out if you have any questions!
