Room Parents Needed

I am in need of TWO Room Parents this year. The PTO is requesting each class (Virtual and F2F) have TWO room parents.  Room Parent duties will help with communication between the teacher and class parents. They will help organize class parties, teachers gifts, etc. While parents are not allowed on campus at this time, restrictions may be lifted throughout the year, and room parents will need to be in place if that occurs.  If you are interested, please send your name, email and phone number to me and I will forward to Samantha Herington our PTO Vice President.  Thanks!!

Objectives for Week of September 14

We had a great first week building our classroom community and relationships.  I loved seeing all the wonderful work that the students did. I did post a video under Tech 101 on how to add the grid extension for Google Meets for those interested.  In addition, if you have not added the Remind App, I highly encourage you to as this is a great way for me to stay in contact with you about updates and to answer questions quickly. Thank you for those that have filled out the First Week Parent survey that I emailed on Friday.  Your input is appreciated.
 
This week we will be diving into our lessons while still building those relationships.
