Week of June 1st (week 11 of remote learning)

I cannot believe this is it!  We have come to the end of a very interesting year full of good and not so good memories, but we survived, so congratulations to all!  This is the last week of instruction for the lower grades, so it is very important for the students to be at the morning Zoom meetings as we start to say good-bye.  This week’s lesson plans are reduced as we wrap things up.  However, the Zooms and the work assigned and submissions are very important for your student’s final assessment.  They are not receiving grades this final trimester, but will receive a narrative based on how well they attended Zooms and completed and submitted their work, focusing on their effort.  Just a few more days to do their best and end on a high note!

Here we go one last time:
