Room 11 Families!
I am so impressed with your first graders! They are really working hard to do their best and be super learners. It is a challenge for sure.
As we begin to transition back into the classroom we will face new challenges. As some kids stay online, they will need lots of love too. It will take all of us to help our kids feel the security and support they need.
