posted Apr 6, 2020, 11:18 AM by Cynthia Friedman

Hello Room 3 families and welcome to Week 2 of our supplementary learning experience!  One important notification is that our daily morning zoom meeting has been rescheduled from 10 to 9:30 am.  This was to ensure that all classroom meeting times do not overlap.  I have attached a file named "Week_2_Resources.pdf" that contains guidance and supplemental information on the assignments for this week.  The work plan below is a suggested guide to your student's weekly learning.  Please pick and choose or create your own activities based on what works for your family.  We had a great first week and are now up and rolling.  Thank you for all the hard work you are putting in.  I know this is not easy!
