We hope you have enjoyed working on the Choice Board projects. We appreciate all of your support this year! Please note the following schedule for next week:

-Monday: 6/8- Please drive by the school to pick up your student’s belongings. 2:00-4:00. Mrs. Wise and I will be there helping to hand out bags, t-shirts, and certificates! :)
Please note: We will not be having our normally scheduled class meeting because Mrs. Wise and I will be at school finishing phase two of pack up. We will have out meeting on Thursday.

-Thursday: 6/11- 
1. Last class meeting at 10:00. I will send the zoom link that morning on DOJO.
2. 5th Grade Promotion Drive By. Line up in front of the school at 5:00 so we can Celebrate your accomplishments! Families will remain in their cars and drive around the bus loop. Staff will be outside cheering!

-Friday: 6/12- Last Day of School! I will email final report cards out via the HUB (like we did for 3rd quarter).

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


Families, 
The LEES SCA is asking all 5th graders to help with a gift to the school.  Please ask your child to find a rock, paint it (or not), and write a word (or words) of hope, encouragement, or kindness on the rock.  We will then create a rock garden in our new indoor/outdoor classroom, as a gift from the 5th graders of 2019-2020!  We will have a bin to collect the rocks at the 5th grade drop off/pick up which will be sometime before the end of the school year.  They can write their name on the rock (maybe on the back).  Thank you for helping the SCA with this project!

I have sent parents an email via the HUB. Please check for that email at some point today. I am trying to verify a working email for when I send home report cards in May. I am asking that you reply back by email if you received it with your child's first name. I'm keeping a list of who I was able to successfully reach.

If you do not receive my email, please do two things for me:
1. message me via DOJO and let me know
2. Log into your ParentVue account and update your information. If you do not have an account, please contact Mrs. MacGregor or Mrs. Summers for additional guidance.

I am attempting to keep track of everything on the various platforms so that you are receiving timely, relevant, and accurate information. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. 

Each of you (parents) have been amazing during this time!

We hope you are all doing well! Mrs. Wise and I have been busy creating new additions to support our virtual classroom.

We will be adding a weekly Class Zoommeeting on Mondays for students to touch base and check in. We will also try to do a quick overview of the week’s activities. Mrs. Wise and I will be meeting with 5thgrade on Mondays from 10:00-10:30. A link will be sent via DOJO.

We will also offer “office hours” for parents and students who have questions or concerns. As stated before, you do not have to wait to reach out with questions. We are still checking email and DOJO regularly. This time on Friday will be called: “Connect With Your Teacher.” Mrs. Wise and I will set up a Zoom meeting each Friday from 10:00-11:00. We will send out the Zoom Meeting invite link on Friday mornings via DOJO. This will be a pop in and out session. If you have specific student concerns that would require a more private discussion, please contact one of us so that we can set that up.

Mrs. Wise and I will also be creating and posting weekly videos. I will be reading a chapter each week from the book Slacker.If you have it, please feel free to follow along as I read. If you enjoy this book, there is a sequel you might be interested in reading after. I will be posting the read aloud videos on Flipgrid. You can then respond with your own video. Read alouds were some of our favorite times over the past two years! I will be posting my video on Mondays. You can then access it when you have time throughout the week.

We are excited for these new changes and appreciate everyone hanging in there with us! “See” you soon!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Spring Break. This week's optional Distance Learning Activity calendar has been posted. Please click on the Weekly Learning Opportunities and select this week's tab. Please note, I have posted "Office Hours" but continue to reach out at any time. Regardless of the time/day of the week I will get back to you ASAP. I am regularly checking my 
email and DOJO. I have removed the quiet hour function on my phone so it will alert me when messages have been sent. I miss you all and love reading your emails. Your Flipgrid videos are AMAZING!!!! You are also doing an awesome job completing the daily assignments! Our class rocks! We will chat soon!

Hi families! Hope everyone is doing well. Are you running low on high interest books to read?

Have your student log into his/her Office365 account, go into Clever, and find the icon: myON. There are tons of books-for free! I’ve never used this program before(and am currently exploring) but have heard great things! Take some time and explore. I believe when the students first login they will take a preassessment to help with leveling. There is also a read aloud feature. Bella is currently listening to/reading a Scooby-Doo book. If you have time, try it out. Please let me know what you think!

Hope you all are doing well! Please don't forget to click on the "Weekly Learning Opportunities" link to view optional assignments for this week. The 4/5 Team wanted to provide meaningful activities that were easily implemented at home. Please message me if you have any questions or concerns.
We miss you!!!

Every Monday, we will be adding online weekly learning opportunities for students to access at home. You can find this assignment calendar on the left side of my page under "Weekly Learning Opportunities." We have also added the assignments to the class calendar. There will be no new graded work until April 14th.

Please be patient as we try to navigate this new normal of remote learning.  I will try my best to help each and every one of you.  Email or message me on Class Dojo any time!  

Know that your teachers, principals, and the rest of the staff at Leesylvania care about you and miss you!  We hope you are safe and healthy at home and that we will be able to see you all again soon!
