Hello Twin Creeks Families,

 

We have truly missed your children over the last week!  We hope that you and your family are doing well, staying healthy, and enjoying your time together.  I know that we are all adapting to these new routines.  We are excited to begin this journey of distance learning with you!  What an adventure we are ready to begin. 

 

By now you have heard from your classroom teacher with the specific details for classroom learning moving forward.  Before I share additional details, I want you to know that your well-being and the well-being of your child is of the utmost importance for all of us. If you need support, please reach out to me or your classroom teacher. Our teachers and staff are committed to helping you during this process.

 

For the next 2 weeks, March 24-April 3, 2020, all of our classrooms across the district will cover material that is a review of topics previously covered, or enrichment. This work is voluntary, but strongly encouraged. Work will not be graded, however, unless there are extenuating circumstances, the expectation of our district and school for all students during these 2 weeks is that each student attempts the material introduced.

 

For resources on how to take care of yourself, how to plan for your day, or connect with your teachers, please check out our handouts: Productive Tigers and Healthy Tigers.

Our district is also providing Grab N Go Meals for interested students.  Please read this flyer for the details.  COVID19 Meal Service

 

During the next couple weeks we are planning optional schoolwide events and activities such as virtual Spirit Days and Read-alouds to connect our Twin Creeks’ community and to have fun!  Our first Spirit Day -  Pajama Day is this week.  Let's be honest, pajamas are one of the best parts of homeschooling!  Send your classroom teacher a picture of your child working on his/her schoolwork in his/her pajamas.  Mrs. Single will put together a short video with our PJ highlights.

 

We are all learning to establish and maintain new routines, and cope with this new chapter in our lives. In the coming days and weeks, our district will be providing us more information about the future of grading assignments and what our distance learning will look like after Spring Break, beginning on April 13, 2020. Unfortunately, we do not have any further information about what school or distance learning will look like after April 13. However, I want to assure you that our entire school and district are committed to providing you the best learning opportunities available during this time as well as being creative in finding ways to maintain community, learning, and engagement.

 

Have a great week!  Roar with Pride!
