Month: April 2020
Teachers are still learning more about how our roll out of distance learning is going to look, but have been hard at working preparing materials for students to work on in the meantime. The packets I called you about last week (week of March 30) are being prepared for mailing today, so you should see them in your mailboxes soon! These same resources are also going to be made available online. You can access them here: https://sites.google.com/bethel.k12.or.us/sr2020
I’ll be reaching out again once we know our next steps, so stay tuned. I miss all my kiddos and am itching to get things going for them!
Next week, Doug is inviting students into his home for a LIVE, 20-minute science show. He’ll answer real kids’ questions about the current situation we’re all dealing with, as well as share a few fun surprises.
