A Letter from Mr. Pierce

Dear Families, 

          We are all doing our best to navigate this difficult time, and we understand that may look different for each family. With that in mind, we are providing some basic recommendations for all families to follow with regard to continuing student learning during the school closure. During this time, students will not be graded on any of the material provided or be held accountable for any of the content upon their return to school, however, we do encourage you to do what you can. Students can bring samples of their work back to school to share with the class. Be sure to reach out to your child’s teacher for support, if needed. Email addresses can be found under the leadership tab on this website.

General recommendations:

  1. Try to establish a daily routine. This will provide children with a sense of safety and security in an otherwise unsettling situation, and help them transition back to school when the time comes.
  2. Limit screen time to 1.5 hours (this includes online learning tools, video games, etc.), and limit sessions to 30 minutes (recommended by the AAP and WHO)
  3. Review basic academic skills.
  4. Wash your hands a lot, and practice ‘social distancing’!
  5. Have fun with your family!

Daily Academic Options:

  • Read, or be read to (20 min. for K-2 students, 30 min. for 3rd-5th graders)
  • Journal Writing - 
    • K/1 - Practice writing the alphabet or sight words, draw a picture and write a sentence or two about it.
    • 2-5 - Record daily thoughts, 3 Gratitudes, memorable events, etc.
  • Practice Math Facts (make it fun!)
  • Complete an activity from the Music, Art, and PE Bingo card. (pg. 2)
  • Complete one hour of physical activity - outside or inside.
  • Utilize online learning options:
