Message from Mr. Jarot

Anderson School 2020 - The Sky's the Limit!

We are the Anderson Foxes!

Hello Anderson Families,

Despite these very unique circumstances, we will be focused and working hard to help your child stay safe, feel connected, and of course learn and grow as much as possible over the next few weeks.


This afternoon, you will receive communication from your child's teacher regarding their eLearning plans. Please don't hesitate to reach out to the teachers if you have any questions. We are here to support you and help your child learn. Of course, email is a good way to reach out, but you can also call their voicemail number to leave a message. (If you don't already have it, each teacher will share their email and vmail information with you)


Daily "Morning Announcements" from Mr. Jarot!

As much as possible, I want to help your child know that even though they can't be physically present in the building, they can still feel connected to our school. I will be posting daily morning announcements on our Anderson facebook page with updates, jokes, fun facts, encouragement, and a challenge for them to work hard and do their best. Parents, I'll also throw in some "make sure you are being nice to your little sister and cleaning your room" comments. :)


As always, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

Sincerely,

Mr. Jarot
