      Dear Families and Students,

      Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page. This page was created to provide students working from home with access to assignments, links, assessments, and practice resources.

      Should you have any questions about assignments, please contact your child's teacher through classroom dojo or check your child's teacher's webpage. 

      Family Expectations:

      We expect family members to assist the preschooler with assignments each day to continue the learning process. This is important as we do not want children to regress throughout the school year. 

      Please be sure to identify a comfortable and quiet space for your child to study/learn.

      Dedicate an appropriate time to learning. 

      Check classdojo for information on assignments and resources on a daily basis. Participate in classdojo with your child's teachers and share photos of your child engaged in the assigned activities.

      Please find additional learning programs below to further engage your child in the learning process while at home. However, please remember to monitor the amount of time your child is in front of a screen.






      For parent resources, please use the tabs to navigate through our website. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us and check our webpage regularly for updates.
