Assignments for Remote Learning

Dear Kindergarten families, 

 

In order to help relieve some stress that families may be feeling due to this new transition of learning, you may notice that we have fewer assignments for this coming week. Also, in an effort to better streamline our communication with students, you may notice that we have scheduled our videos and/or zoom check-ins differently than last week. We are also posting some optional assignments for those who want to do more and the resources of iReady, Reading Eggs, Mathseeds, and Epic are also available for extension. We want our students to be engaged in learning but do not want to overwhelm them or you throughout this unique situation, so please do what works best for your family. Please reach out to us if you have questions about this schedule or the expectations.
