SY20 TCES Family Issue #29
April 20, 2020
Hello Terrapin Families!
Our teachers, staff, and I owe great thanks to you for your patience, understanding, and collaboration as we navigated through our first week of continuous learning opportunities. We had many successes and worked well together to overcome challenges. Look for Week 1 Imagine Learning progress information from your child's teacher by Friday.
Please continue to reach out to let us know how we can support you. Keep smiling, everyone. Together, we got this!
Throughout the extended school closure, SMCPS is providing continuous opportunities for learning. This not our normal way of doing business, so there are many questions. SMCPS will provide ongoing updates for these questions in this format.

Looking for More Resources & Learning Activities?
Check out these activities recommended by our SMCPS Supervisors:
Thinkport.org has developed At Home Learning Viewing Guides, which provide "before, during and after" learning strategies and activities to help parents and teachers "turn viewing into doing", for the PBS and MPT educational programs that are airing daily.
If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the SMCPS Media Site. It includes ideas for at home activities, resources for read alouds, and website links for students. Tons of resources in one spot!
The Math Learning Center has created fantastic Math at Home Grade Level Sites for families. They include Activities of the Day, Games Families Can Play and Online Games.
We will be available via email to answer and respond to questions and concerns. Although staff may be available outside of these times, please be aware that responses to any communications received outside of these hours may be delayed. Thank you!
