Hi Families-

Hope you all had a great weekend!  The plans for this week are to follow.  This is the link to see what we will be working on…

How can we work together to make our lives better?

It’s May!  This is one of my favorite months of the year.  Here’s why:  it’s Spring time- lots of great weather, flowers in bloom and baby animals born.  May 5th is Cinco de Mayo and my oldest daughter’s birthday, and the month ends with Memorial Day weekend, and barbecues with family and friends.  Many family traditions take place for me this month.  We will explore this more on Tuesday.  This week in Wonders we are talking about how we can work together to make our lives better.  This has been an interesting time in teaching/learning, in our lives in general. I am constantly reminded that we are in this together.  I look forward to seeing you as we Zoom- trying to figure out that program!  I look forward to hearing from you on ClassDojo, or via text.  We are truly working together to make this a memorable learning experience for us all.  This makes me very thankful for each one of you!

I heard from more of you this past week.  We were Zooming with 16 of us this past Monday!  As a reminder, our grading will look different for Trimester 3 in that you will be given a mark of either “Met Expectations” or “Limited to no Contact”.  If you are only working on packets, please take a picture and post to ClassDojo.  Please be sure you are checking in with me daily, either via Zoom, email (kcoffman@pittsburg.k12.ca.us) or via ClassDojo.  I can’t stress these last few sentences enough.  I have to hear from you in one of these forms. Be sure to go to the Stories area of ClassDojo for all events and Zoom information.  You will find the log in for the Zoom session and the materials that you need for that session.  Make sure to have pizza boxes on hand when we Zoom as that is where their materials should be kept.  These sessions give you a bit of a break, too!  Please be sure that you can access everything through Clever as this is another way to check in daily with me.  I can see who has logged in and who has not.  Lastly, I would save everything that your child is doing during this time.  

Please stay in touch!  Please reach out if you need my help.  We are in this together.  Stay Well!

:) Mrs. Coffman
