    Parents,

    Welcome to my website. 

    For the duration of time your child is out of school please refer to this page which will provide additional resources for home learning. Resources will be updated weekly. I will continue to send out my weekly update via email to you directly, within that email I will have a message for you to share with your child. This means I WILL NOT be emailing your child directly. Please check your email frequently. 

    On Tuesday, March 17 (from 7:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m.), you will have the opportunity to stop in at Mendon and pick-up work for your child. If you are unable to do so please contact the school 267-1600, we will work to ensure your child has their materials. These packets are math and ela specific. No more than 30 minutes per day (breaks built in as needed) should be required. These are reinforcement activities meant to provide the opportunity to practice skills already learned.

    Hopefully, you have saved the News2You packets that have been sent home weekly along with the homework packets. Feel free to use these as needed. Skills addressed within the News2You packets include; reading, comprehension, "wh" questions, capitalization, punctuation, and writing. Math reinforcement includes; basic operations, word problems as well as following directions.

    In my weekly upate which will go out later today you will find a life skills activity calendar. Print this out (if possible), there are many examples provided  to practice life skils.

    I have read alot recently on what this opportunity can provide us. Remember to take a walk outside, play board games, READ, bake or any other family activity you enjoy. 

    Please remember...in the end, it will be impossible to know if we overreacted or did too much, but it will be QUITE apparent if we under reacted or did too little.
