Hawk Squawk 11/12/20
I am excited to see your children in our HAL Hangout sessions tomorrow, November 13. K-2 will meet from 11:30 am to 12 pm, and 3-5 will meet from 12 to 12:30 pm. Students are encouraged to bring their lunch and eat while we learn more about each other. Zoom meeting invitations were sent on Tuesday, November 10, to parent and 3rd-5th grade student email addresses. If you did not receive a zoom link, please let Lee Gates know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Beginning Monday, November 16, Music and PE schedules will model your child's STEM routine in that they will have one synchronous (live) and one asynchronous (non-live) day each week. Music and PE classes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will be synchronous and Music and PE classes on Mondays and Fridays will be asynchronous. All asynchronous classes on Monday and Fridays will be posted online by 8 am. STEM classes will remain the same. K-2 asynchronous lessons will be posted on SeeSaw and 3-5 will be posted on Google Classroom. Here's a link to the Specials Schedule. Thank you for your support and flexibility as we continue to navigate online learning.
As I visit classes, it brings me great joy to see student and teacher engagement. Kindness challenges, directed drawing activities, choice boards, rose and thorns, virtual field trips and scavenger hunts keep lessons interesting and students challenged.
Enjoy the day!

This change is intended to provide additional support, reduce screen stress and allow catch up time. Participation is expected and attendance will be taken as usual.
