Parents, thank you so much for your patience and support during this week. Your children did an AMAZING job of logging into GOOGLE CLASSROOM to read the morning message, completing the choice boards for literacy and math, and completing assignments in Lexia, Raz Kids and Dreambox. I know this is a HUGE learning curve for a lot of us, especially with the technology piece! So thank you for being so understanding during this time. 

    Friday, April 10th and Monday, April 13th are school holidays, therefore there will not be any new assignments posted, nor will there be a morning message within google classroom. The new choice boards will be posted on TUESDAY MORNING. I hope you have a restful and wonderful Easter weekend :)

    . Your children have made an immense amount of progress this year, and I want to continue to see that progress grow, as well as to continue to support their individual needs. We are in this together, so please reach out to me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I know this situation isn't ideal for anyone, but like I said above, we are going to make the best of this virtual learning. 

    Students will be receiving a majority of their lessons through Google Classroom, and are encouraged to continue to access math support and games on Dreambox, as well as practicing reading comprehension through the use of Raz Kids. Students should also be reading at home, as well as practicing math facts, and reading over their Virginia Studies Refrigerator Cards inorder to review content that was taught earlier in the school year. Students can also access additional resources through the school library, as well as through the additonal apps on the student resources page. 

    More importantly though, take care of yourselves and your children. This can be a very difficult time for many familes and children. We are all adjusting to this new way of life, and at the end of the day, the kids are the most important focus. Spend some extra time as a family, try a new science experiment together, play a game together, play a sport together, or just enjoy the company of one another and the time we have together right now. Your family and childrens health is the most important item to take care of. 

    Please encourage your children to continue to check Google Classroom and Flipgrid for important messages. I will keep you updated via email with any changes and any information that I receive. 

     As always, thank you so much for supporting your little HAWK and for supporting our classroom and school.  It would not be possible without YOU!
