The Viking View - Families

Monday November 9th

From the Desk of Principal Williams

Dear Families,

I can't believe we are in November! Our students, staff, and families have grown so much in regards to distance learning this school year. I am so proud of all of you and your commitment to the success of Steele Lane.

As a staff we have been working hard on student engagement and focusing our efforts in not only getting students to attend our Zoom Rooms but also engage these students in the discussion and activities as well as creating lessons that engage them outside the interactive time with their classmates and teacher.

We need your help. Some ways you can help are in the following ways;

- Ask your student to show you their daily schedule, you can even post it on the refrigerator.

- Ask your student what activities they worked on today or what their teacher discussed in the Zoom Room.

- Email or contact the teacher via Class Dojo or Parent Square, to ask questions or get support.

- Encourage your students to not only attend the morning Zoom, but to also reach out to their teacher during office hours.

- Create a space for your student to be productive, and can "do" school.

- Pick up any materials that are being distributed by your teacher.

We all appreciate you and all you are doing at home to support your student. We know this is not easy and are here to support you and your family. Please reach out to us if you need support or have any questions or concerns.

May the FORCE be with you,

Mrs. Williams
