We greatly appreciate your support for helping our students continue learning at home. The following activities are suggested learning activities. Each day of the week please try to encourage your child to complete:

  1. 20 minutes of reading

  2. Daily Journal Entry (1 sentence is great.  Perhaps about what you did or will do today.)

  3. Pick an activity from the grid below  (You could treat it like BINGO, for more fun.)

Since they are only suggestions please know that they are not required nor graded.

Thank you for your support.
