J(US)tice League Story Time Tonight on Zoom!

Come learn about some real-life superheroes in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. - another real-life superhero!


Choose one of the stories listed below. Make some popcorn and hot chocolate, find a cozy spot, then click on a Zoom link by 6:30 pm.


And be sure you notice the schedule for next week. Wednesday will be like a typical Tuesday.


Finally, thank you to the PTC who purchased the PE supplies that you picked up during Grab & Go. I know students loved the new playground balls, beach balls or ziplock bags, and jump ropes.


Hope to see you on Zoom tonight!

Parent Resources from Teachers College Reading & Writing Project at Columbia University

You may have seen your children watching videos during Distance Learning about a reading, writing, or phonics skill. These videos are produced by staff at Teachers College in New York who help train classroom teachers how to use the Units of Study in Reading, Writing, and Phonics - the literacy curriculum we use in Beaverton.


If you would like more resources to support your child at home or if there is an area of literacy in which you would like to better support your child, please take a look at these two resources:
