    Hello Families,

     

    I write to you today to help put your minds at ease in this uncertain time. We are in uncharted waters and are doing all we can to ensure that your children still have the educational resources they so desperately need. With that said, I made a packet of work for the class on Friday. Please be sure to look at district website to see times that you can pick up not only the work packets, but also grab and go meals for your children. The work packets are a broad base of work that cover skills of our very diverse class of learners. Parents please use your discretion as the work varies in level of difficulty to ensure access and differentiation for all learners and levels of ability within our class. Not all work is appropriate to each student. Rather, their is work designed to help all students on skills and ability levels suited to their needs.

    In addition to this. All students can Login to our Google Classroom site. Here I will be reaching out on a daily basis, I will do so here as well. In Google Classroom I will provide additional learning opportunities. These include links to new work, links to read alouds for students who struggle with the reading and PowerPoint presentations that can help students understand or refresh strategies and skills for them to practice. Please do not hesitate to contact me on Google Classroom or by email directly. I will be checking in multiple times a day on both Google Classroom and on my direct email. In addition to this Google Hangout is available as a way to interact in a visual or auditory way. It works like group chat, but has a video capability similar to Skype.

     

    Be safe, and be well. Pease let your children know that I miss them and I will be here remotely every step of the way. Please see specific websites below that children may use independently to continue work at home:

     

    www.splashlearn.com (students know it as Slash Math, the name changed recently, but all else is the same) I have specific lessons designed for each individual student here for them.

    www.raz-kids.com (students know their logins and work here on reading skills on their own individual levels).

    St Math (students can login using the Clever Portal on the Peekskill website under the Staff Heading).

    Good Morning Families. Welcome to a brand new week. I hope everyone had a good and restful weekend. As always, remember that grab and go meals are available at your childrens schools for breakfast and lunch, curbside pickup. Any families who have not accepted the invite to Remind please do so, it is a very quick and easy to share information and for you ask and have questions answered.

    Also, Mr. L. created a Google Classroom Page. If you go on my Google Classroom Page you can see the code to join his as well. Any families who did not make it by the school to pick up your work packets do not worry, they will be mailed to your homes this week. In addition to this, I am adding fresh work to our Google Classroom every day, with the exception of the weekends. Be sure you practice your skills, this will ensure that you do not forget what you have learned and are ready to keep going when we get back to school.

    I miss you all and look forward to when we can get back to our learning!!!

Just a reminder to all parents, students can and should log in to my Google Classroom so they may start working on their assignments. I know we all have a lot on our plates right now, but it is important that our children stay engaged and continue to practice skills so they retain them. I have reached out to all of you via phone and Remind. Be sure to add so you can keep in contact and I will be able to answer any questions you may have.

    Hello families, I hope everyone is in a good place as we enter the month of April. Hard to believe we are here, the days are all bleeding together in some respect at this point. Remember, this is a wonderful time to be able to spend time with one another and to work on things for yourself that you might not always have time to do. In addition to this, remember to get your reading in and to visit google classroom for new work from myself, Mrs. Vogel, Mrs Iamiceli, Mrs. Kroohs, Miss Skolnick, Miss Moczarski, Miss Kramer, Mrs, Flagler, and messages from Mr. Dodaro.
