• Weekly Lesson Plan for May 26-30

    Please note that this will be our last week of instruction and Zoom meetings. Please try to attend them so we can say goodbye for the summer!

    Thursday meetings have a time change. Look for an email from me with new times.

     


    Dear Parents,

     

    I have been quiet on the email front, to give you some sanity during the Shelter-In-Place order. I am so sorry, and so sad that Kindergarten had to be cut short. I know this has been an extremely stressful and strange time. Some of you have thoroughly loved this time at home, and others have found it to be a nightmare. Many families have been continuing to juggle full-time careers with their family and child needs around the clock.

     

    Nothing can compare to the classroom and the dynamic experiences of true kindergarten learning, but I thank you for doing your best. Regardless of how much "school" you were able to tackle over the last several weeks, rest assured your child will be OKAY! We are preparing your child's placements for First Grade, and the classes will be new and exciting! All students have been home since March, and there will be lots of review once we start back up in August.

     

    We have no official model of how school will "LOOK" in August. We are awaiting guidelines from Monterey County, and will not know for certain until July. In the meantime, just know it will all be OKAY.

     

    School work will conclude Friday! We will have our last class meeting at 9:30. Please try to be there!

     

    There will be 2 days when you can come to school and pick up all the work, art, folders, etc.… that we would usually send home at the end of the year. This is also a time to return items to us. Please keep all the work and journals you have. Nothing needs to be returned to me except library books. Please leave them in Bobcat Hall and I will returnnthem to the library. If you borrowed a Chromebook, that will need to be returned as well.

     

    There is a summer “workbook” that I used with my own children over the summers. Here is a link to it. It is called the Summer Bridge Series. It bridges one grade to another. I would suggest the K-1 level if you are interested. The daily lessons are super short but touch on all aspects of the curriculum.

    I love and miss the students so very much! You are all my heroes for staying home and keeping everyone healthy. There will be a day at the beginning of next school year when we can say hello again and goodbye. This isn’t forever, just a little while.
