Connected Learning during the Pandemic

Connected Learning during the Pandemic

Our teachers have been sensitive to frustrations of the pandemic and its challenging impact on the home and the school community. During this time, we committed to providing experiences which met the needs of the whole child – social, emotional and intellectual development.

During our time of virtual connected learning, our children sang, moved, laughed, engaged in provocations, experienced connection and socialization with their friends and their teachers, listened and interacted with stories and shared their own unique experiences.

While honoring social distancing our teachers made home visits for waving to the children, reading stories to the children, and delivering materials for the children to use at home.

Our school year was culminated with "Drive-By Good-byes" and a graduation parade.
