    Daily Schedule


    Clever Link 





    This will be a first grade year like no other!  We will be opening our schools virtually for the first time in history.  I am so excited to meet your first grade student on our first Zoom meeting on August 24!  I will be communicating with each of you through a ClassDojo link as soon as the class lists are posted.  You will get more information about how virtual learning will work, and I will always be available to answer your questions.  Some of the programs that your child will need to use for our daily lessons are Zoom, Seesaw and IReady.  Information will be given to you about each program and tutorials will be made available.  If you have never used Zoom, please plan on signing up for a free account at your earliest convenience because our live instruction will be done via Zoom



    Supply pick-up will be August 17th from 2-5pm and August 18th from 8-11am. 

    Virtual Open House will be August 20th. 

    School begins on Zoom August 24th!
