Earth Day 2020

We won't be able to clean Tirrill Park as a school, but you can pretend clean in Michael, Michael, Go Recycle!


Watch video, Earth Day Carol. (a parody of A Christmas Carol)

ABC Countdown

Even though we are not at school physically, I would still like to count down the last days of school with the ABC Countdown. Starting this week, I will suggest an activity beginning with a letter of the alphabet, with A beginning this week and Z on the last day of school. Look for the A activity/activities on Edmodo this Wednesday!!

Memory Books

I usually do a memory book to commemorate our school year. It contains papers done by you and pictures, etc. that I add. Some of the activities for the ABC Countdown will go in the memory book (I will mark them as such). If you would like to complete a memory book, please complete those papers and return them to me. I will put your memory book together and see that you get it!!
Don't forget you can always do Seesaw, Boom Cards, Prodigy, and Learning Farm!!
As always, if you have any questions or need help with anything, please do not hesitate to email me!!
