Active Coping Calendar! (multiple languages)


School is not in session, however, it is very important that you set aside 30 minutes to 1 hour per day to keep up with your education during this time that we are not in school.

Here are links to information on the coronavirus in multiple languages:




Please know how important it is that you continue learning every day, whether it is reading a book, watching an educational tv program, or playing an educational game on your iPad or Chromebook.

I am sending you some educational opportunities that will help you continue your education, along with keeping up with your English language skills. Please do your best to continue practicing your listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills in English in order to progress in the English language!

Your classroom teacher is sending you some educational activities and "homework" to complete as best you can while you are at home. You can visit your Google Classroom or SeeSaw account to see what your classroom teacher is sending you.

In the meantime, I am also sending you some suggested activities and English language learning opportunities for you to continue your learning at home.

PARENTS! Here is a link to a suggested schedule for your child(ren) to remain on a schedule as best as they can!

Take some time to read, write, do some math/prodigy, and help your parents with getting things done around the house. Show how much you care for one another. I miss you all and hope to see you soon! Take care of one another and stay healthy!
