Dear Families,

Thank you so much for your cooperation and dedication. You and your child have done an incredible job in the past two weeks!

As we continue with Remote Learning, my differentiated weekly assignments will be delivered through email. Please continue to use Seesaw, in order for me to provide feedback on your child’s progress. It has been so nice to still be connected to your child through their responses (voice recording, photos, videos, etc.).

I am looking forward to a great week with you all!

Best, 

Ms. Purpura
