Here's what you shared with us! Thanks for the insight!

What parents and students are sharing as highlights for this week!


  • The Teachers! They have been so amazing at communicating, being available & engaging the students! Our student has truly enjoyed the online chats and time with her teachers and I think that has been a motivator for her. I can’t thank them enough for their commitment.
  • It’s been great being able to see what he’s working on each day and discussing it together.
  • She loves being at home and getting to space out her work during the day as she pleases- it makes her feel more independent and feels it’s good preparation for high school next year.
  • Some of my teachers have daily live help sessions.
  • All of my teachers were very understanding when something went wrong and I couldn’t complete an assignment on time.
  • Help sessions are very helpful (“ironically”)



What teachers are sharing as highlights this week!

  • I am proud of the kids who are asking questions and staying on top of all of their work even when it is difficult to do so. This says a lot about our students!
  • I think our kids are super “flexible” this is one of their strengths so I think they are doing great!
  • I have been very impressed with the students’ hard work. They are sharing that they are taking family walks, watching shows, and playing games. I love that they share with me!

We want to hear from you!

Happy Thursday! As you are settling into your new normal with the Online Learning Days, we would love to have some feedback from our parents on how your students are managing. Your insight and suggestions will help as we move forward with the next few weeks of online learning.


Thank you in advance for giving us feedback!
