     *Family expectations*

    We expect family members to assist the preschooler with assignments each day to continue with the learning process. This is important as we do not want children to regress during remote learning. We want them to continue growing and learning while they are home.


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


    • Dedicate an appropriate time to learning. 


    • Check classdojo and our web page for information on assignments and resources on a daily basis.


    • Participate in google meet and classdojo with your child's teachers and share photos/videos of your child engaged in the assigned activities.
