Adjusted Learning

A Message From Your Teachers

We hope that you have had a good start to this new Remote Learning experience. We know this is a big adjustment and we are sending you quite a bit of information. We are here to help and support you with anything you need during this time. Here you will find the usual overview of our units with some extra resources, updates about Seesaw and special messages from our paraprofessionals.

We will be continuing our March unit about light and sound waves before moving on to the next unit. We will begin our new unit about money next week. As we continue to use Google Classroom if you have any questions please let us know.

Be sure to keep checking your emails frequently as we will continue to send you updates about Remote Learning. We appreciate all your support as we move forward.

Upcoming Dates

April 10: No School

April 17: Teacher Institute Day- No School


In addition to our Google Classroom we will be using Seesaw for some fun Remote Learning opportunities. Students will need access to the Seesaw Class App to complete these activities. We will be sending you an email with directions for downloading this version of the app so that students can have access to our classroom page from home. You will also receive a home learning code through the chat of your current Seesaw app. Once you have access to the new Class App, you will be able to see the activities we post to complete using Seesaw.
