School News

We’ve made it through our first week of distance learning! Using online tools such as Quizlet and BrainPop, students were able to work on geography, math, English, and Latin from their own homes. We were even able to continue our morning ritual of reading a poem and doing creative writing together thanks to Google Classroom. Classroom will also facilitate the addition of our Humanities, Mathtivty, and Science classroom back into our curriculum this coming week. In this rapidly evolving environment of virtual education, we thought it would be helpful to share a list of online resources for teachers, parents, and students alike.
