Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is Friday, April 24 – Day 25 of remote learning!

It was great to see and hear some of you this past Monday at the remote PA meeting. If you missed it, the meeting was recorded. The next PA Meeting is May 27, 2020 at 10:00am.

Next Week

Monday, April 27 – Friday, May 1
Remote Learning Continues!

Attendance Reminders
Each day in Google Classroom, remember to start off by answering the morning question. Answering the question is one way teachers take attendance! If you turn in your work in Google Classroom they will also be able to see that you are successfully interacting. If anyone is still having issues logging in, please reach out to us and we will help you troubleshoot any issues.
