Dear Parents and Guardians,
It's been another great week with cameras on in all classes. I spent a lot of time this week observing classrooms and witnessed increased teacher/student engagement. It's wonderful to see smiles on the faces of students not only on-screen but in school. Let's keep the momentum going - please encourage your students to continue cameras on at all times.
A lot of items to share this week. As always, please read everything below carefully:
