Parent e-Learning Tips and Videos
We are in this together! As we continue with remote learning, we wanted to provide additional support for you as you assist your children with their lessons. We are stating with math tutorials. Each week, we will post videos for parents to explain the purpose of each math lesson, how it ties into previous learning, and the expected student outcomes for each lesson.
