Dear First-Grade ‘Ohana,
I emailed this week's calendar of activities to everyone. Please let me know if you have questions. We are continuing to take daily attendance for virtual work this week. Please make sure your child does the work provided in the calendar to get marked present for attendance, especially IXL, Smarty Ants and Flip Grid responses, as well as emailing me pics of journal entries. We will also continue to mark work as collected, missing or incomplete in PowerSchool. Please try your best to keep up with the daily assignments, and let me know if you have any questions. As we continue to work with IXL as part of our distance-learning program, I wanted to share with you that if your child is trying to answer a question they don’t understand, IXL has added two new sections to help students better understand the content that I hope will help with any challenges. I am also always available to meet via Google Hangout or Meet to help with any work as needed.
I wanted to highlight some Smarty Ants superstars from last week! Zoe Goodman had the most time played and most stories built, and Israel had the most words built. Keep up the good work Zoe and Israel! I included a little more time this week for the student’s to work on Smarty Ants as some of our IXL work is winding down.
Next Wednesday, May 13 from 9:00-10:30 the elementary school teachers will line the front of the campus (just like they did during afternoon carpool pick up). They will have bags filled with your student’s belongings for you to take home.
We ask that just like afternoon pick up, cars move through the line so everyone can pick up their things and say good-bye to their teachers.
We ask that everyone stay in their vehicles and give “virtual” hug, kisses and shaka’s so that we can all stay safe and healthy.
If you are unable to come during that time, please call Ms Leslie at (808) 357-5213 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment before the school year ends to pick up your child’s things by May 28, 2020.
I look forward to meeting with the children on Google Meet on Friday! Please check your email for your time from me. I will be sending out invitations next week.
Aloha, Ms. Emily
