Title One Update: Week 8, May 18-22

 

Dear Students and Parents:

First, let me say I hope you and your family are safe and healthy.  Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we adjusted, like you, to the drastic changes in life during the last 8 weeks. I am extremely appreciative of our students and parents for their positivity and flexibility during these trying times.

As you know, this is our last week of distance learning. Our goal was to provide educational opportunities and practice for students while schools were closed, but also to eliminate as much stress as possible for students and parents.  We hope the Title One packets kept your child’s skills up while not causing too much stress for you.  This week I am including a Summer Activity Calendar (attached to the email and printed at school) that you can work on once distance learning packets are completed next Friday.  We hope your child will see these activities as fun.  Also, please encourage your child to read this summer.  Just 10-15 minutes a day will help them maintain their reading level. 

In closing, one of our main focus points for our title one students during the 2019-2020 school year has been having a “growth mindset.” A growth mindset unlocks our ability to learn and grow especially during challenging times. Little did we know how important this growth mindset would be for all of us this year! Because of this experience and our growth mindset, I believe we all will be stronger when we come out on the other side of the COVID-19 Pandemic! We look forward to working with your family and child(ren) next year if they qualify for services in the fall. 

Have a wonderful summer! 

Stay strong! Stay healthy!

If your child wants to work towards their AR goal, please have them listen to the read-aloud books I share each week and quiz on them.  Working on listening comprehension is an important skill too, if reading books is difficult for your child to do independently at this time. 

Grades K-1 Read Aloud

Grades 2 -6 Read Aloud

If you have any questions or need help with strategies when working with your child, please email, Mrs. Hoffman at ghoffman@schs.k12.mn.us. ; I will get back to you within 24 hours on school days.

Please let us know if there is anything, we can do to help.  We miss our students!
