First Remote Learning Day Assignment

Hello families!  As you may already know, your child will either physically come to school on Monday (August 31) or Tuesday (September 1). According to the blended learning schedule, students must complete an assignment at home on their first remote learning day, in order to satisfy their attendance requirement for that day.  Since we realize that most students will not have access to a computer on the “first day”, we are trying to make the assignment as simple as possible for them to complete on their own.  Please see this assignment below:

Assignment: What are the supplies you have ready for working at home?  Where will you do your work?  Where will you sit?  How will you keep yourself organized?  Draw and label a picture of you in your home work space. Bring your drawing to school to share with your class!

Students can work on this activity on Monday (August 31) or Tuesday (September 1) when they are not in school.  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this assignment.  I look forward to working with you as a team this year!
