 Activities during school closure

    I sent home IXL passwords and Stride Academy passwords on Friday, March 13th. These passwords are in your child's take home folder. These websites are excellent resources for you to use while we are out of school. There is a link for these websites on the school webpage. You may also choose to use Starfall. This is a great free resource. I sent home Seesaw and Xtra math passwords for students on Monday 3/16. However, if your child did not receive their password, please feel free to email me and I will provide that password.

     Also, I will update this page with any other websites/resources that I think could be helpful.

      Thank you so much for your help in keeping your child engaged in learning during this time!
