The first few weeks of first grade have been a whirlwind! We've been learning new rules and routines in our new online learning enviroment! Some helpful reminders for you and for us. Please make sure students are prepared with materials needed to learn every day. We have morning meeting every morning from 9-9:20am for all students. Please check your email frequently, important forms and notices come to your email that need your attention. Students should be completing literacy and math lessons every day and submitting assignments through canvas. Thank you for your patience and understanding in our new online learning format.
