Distribution Modified Schedule 

Please note the change in pick up time as there are only 45 minutes in our pick up window. 

Get Epic

This past week during our Tech Time, Ms. Martin led us onto Get Epic. You will love it! Its another place for your child to independently hear reading or read at their level.

Check it out! The kids tried it out on Thursday and some of you were able to see the options! This can be a great option to also let your kids hear stories without you having to read to them every time! You can access this from the Clever Portal. The code needed  is listed in Clever Portal by the app name (code only needs to be put in one time).

Yearbook Pictures

Our awesome school has found a safe way to get student portraits for our yearbook. Please see the email sent this past week with sign up slots to get your child’s picture taken in February. 

Fine Artists

This week, Shannon Tamayo taught the kids their next Fine Artist Lesson. The kids learned how to draw an insect with detail and choose different coloring and drawing details to accent it. They did awesome!

Special thanks to Shannon for attending the training, and taking the time to teach the kids and send out the follow up email with links to upload your child’s art work. 

Asynchronous Work for February 1 – 5th

As we have worked a schedule to limit student online time, try to get practice on these platforms for student practice.

  • Math – ST Math
  • Independent Reading – RAZ Kids  or Book Bag
  • Seesaw – Assigned within Seesaw
  • WRITING (NEW) – Submit one piece of INDEPENDENT writing each week on Seesaw (done with paper and pencil/crayons). Please have your child use the camera feature to submit a picture of their writing. Then have them use the microphone feature to record their writing and submit with the green check.
    • If your child is NOT writing sentences, have them label a picture (with their own spelling or letter label for each item) and submit a photo and recording of it.
    • If your child is writing sentences, they can write a Beginning/Middle/End story about myself OR write a letter to Mrs. Miller asking me and telling me anything they would like. They may include a picture and must submit a photo of the writing and recording of them reading it.

Anonymous Feedback Form

If you have feedback (positive or constructive) or ideas please take a moment to share your thoughts and feedback! I am loving getting to know the kids better and that they are getting to know each other better despite the challenges we don’t typically deal with! Anonymous Feedback Form


This past week we made snow globes! I love the individuality in each student’s art! Check out this little artist from this past week.
