Dear Parents and Guardians,

It is Friday, May 8 – Day 35 of remote learning!

Thank you for the flood of love to teachers this week! We know how much they appreciate hearing from you and receiving extra warm wishes that recognize their hard work. The week flew by with many new read alouds posted. Please be sure to check the stream in your google classroom to catch up if you missed anything! We also hope everyone enjoyed the Parent Q & A meetings.
If you missed your class meeting, you are in luck, Liz recorded each one.
Please find your class meeting here.

Fun reminder, a virtual talent show is in the works!
If you have something to share with our community please be sure to work on your piece, practice and prepare to share! Details to follow.

Remote 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 having issues, please reach out to us and we will help you troubleshoot.

If you are an essential worker and need child care, complete this FORM to begin the enrollment process for the city childcare & enrichment centers. From doctors to grocery store workers, you all are essential to keeping our city going!
