    New Directive from Our State: Teachers will be utilizing new procedures for daily attendance that are designed to keep student engagement strong.  I will utilize a 'question of the day' activity to track students' daily attendance.  You will find the questions in our Remote Learning Plans.  Please sign into Google Classroom to help your child answer each question daily. Thank you!

    Student Work

    Thank you for everything you are doing to ensure your child is engaged in the academic activities during the remote learning period. As we move closer to June, you will see that our lessons will focus on fun end-of-the year activities. There will be an opportunity for you to drop off the student work in June.  As soon as a schedule is developed I will let you know.

    Belongings in the Classroom

    If you feel it is urgent that you pick up your child's belongings from school, please email me and I will contact the front office. The school will then contact you with a day/time to pick up their belongings. Otherwise, all belongings will be returned when your child returns to school in September.

    Good morning friends,

     

    Today is Thursday, May 28, 2020.  We are going to have a cloudy day today. Today is H for hat day!  You can wear your favorite hat or you can make one. You are going to listen to the story I Need My Monster. This is a story with a humorous twist.   Please remember to answer the 'question of the day' in our Google Classroom.

     

    Have a great day!

    Love,

    Ms. Livio

                                                  How to Turn in Assignments

    Dear Families,

    Thank you for your support throughout the Remote Learning Process. This is new learning for me as well!  I truly appreciate your patience. You are doing an amazing job with your child!  My goal is to provide your child with new learning material that is engaging and accessible to everyone.  All of the activities can be completed on your own paper.  For example, you can view the activities online, and then write the answers on a separate sheet of paper.  For writing, you can complete all writing activities on your own paper as well.   You can also keep track of your reading on a sheet of paper.  If you choose to complete the activities on your own paper, please keep the completed assignments together and return them to school when schools are in session.  I can keep track of all the reading on RazKids.

    If you are able to complete the assignments online and prefer to submit them this way, feel free to do so.  Please complete the activities in a way that is best for you and your family.  I do not have a preference. Your child will receive full credit. Please contact me with any questions! 

     

    Sincerely,

    Ms. Livio

     Each student will receive an ID number on the first day of school. This ID number is used for buying lunch in the cafeteria. The number links to their account, which you can add money to at any time.  I will provide lunch cards with ID numbers for the children to use until they have their numbers memorized. If you choose to send lunch money in with your child instead, please have it clearly labeled with your child's name. You will be notified when the balance is getting low. 


     

    Friendly Reminder

    Please write your child's name on the envelope when sending in lunch money.

    Thank you!
