First, I want to say THANK YOU to all students for their efforts for the first official week of completing the remote learning assignments. I also want to thank parents for all of your support. I know it is not easy to balance our new way of living and I truly appreciate everything you do for your children during this time of uncertainty. We couldn’t do this without you. Remember- I am here to support you and am very flexible. Don’t hesitate to reach out!
I also want to say THANK YOU for showing myself and the other teachers so much grace at this time. As we have expressed before, this is new territory for all of us. We are beyond grateful that you have shown us so much understanding and grace over the last couple of weeks, as we navigate all the new ways of learning, teaching, and reaching out to you all. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Next, I want to remind students that there will be NEW assignments on the remote learning site on Monday April 20th (they will also be uploaded in your google classrooms (ELA, Math, SS, Science). These assignments are NEW learning material. This is where I come in. If you do not understand the learning objectives for any of these assignments in any subject, I am here to help. My office hours will be 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm and I am also available throughout the day. (I check my email very frequently.) As long as a parent is present, I can hold google meetings with individual students who are not understanding the material on an as needed basis)
Just like last week, we are strongly encouraging you to try your best to complete 2 ELA assignments, 2 Math assignments, 1 Science assignment, and 1 Social Studies assignment. Also, please don’t forget to check out the assignments that are coming from your specialist. When you complete any of the specialist activities, send your work directly to them. You may also email them with questions.
Please complete the assignments in YOUR GOOGLE CLASSROOMS instead of emailing me the work moving forward. ALL ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE POSTED IN THESE CLASSROOMS. You can still upload pics and videos in google classrooms. It is much easier that all assignments are in one place in order to keep track of it all on my end. We will also be doing our weekly google meetings through our Team Loreto google classroom starting Thursday April 23rd. We will be meeting again at 1:00. The link will be posted in the google classroom after 12:30, that afternoon.
Because the 5th grade assignments are not listed day by day like other grade levels, I want to offer to you a daily work schedule. If you follow this- you will have “OFF” from school every Friday 🙂 Please remember this is a SUGGESTED work schedule and is not required to follow. We thought it might be helpful so students and parents do not feel overwhelmed.
