    Dear Students and Parents,
     
    Grade 4 NYSESLAT Continued Learning Packets for English Language Learners were picked up at Hillcrest on 3/16. If you were unable to pick up your packet, you can access it through my teacher page under interesting web resources. You will also find links to sound clips that go along with the speaking and listening sections of the packet.
     
    If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me at the email listed above.
     
    Thank you for your help and support during this time!
     
    Sincerely,
    Mrs. D’Alfonso

    ALL STUDENTS should join Mr. L's Google Classroom which is called Hillcrest HAWKS to receive daily announcements and to participate in schoolwide activities and contests (ooooh! aaaah!). We tried to invite all students to join but it looks like not everyone received the invitation, so just (1) Go to Google Classroom (2) Click the + in the upper right hand corner (3) Pick "Join a Class" and then (4) enter the code: n6uv7ke. See you there!

    *3/31 I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! This weekend my husband and I cleaned our whole house and the girls have already managed to get their toys everywhere! I also got to catch up with my best friends over a video call. Last week we sent out crafts to some of our family and friends that are nurses--they received them over the weekend and were so appreciative. Please share what you did over the weekend-- you can email me or leave a comment in our Google Classroom. I think about you all the time and can't wait to hear from you!

    Don't forget to work on NYSESLAT activities for 10-15 minutes.
