REMOTE LEARNING INSTRUCTIONS

Dear Families,

Please work with your child on the packets sent home in the purple folder. If you did not get the folder, please contact the school to pick it up.

In your child’s purple folder, you will find work for math, reading, science and social studies. Please complete 2 to 3 pages of reading and 2 to 3 pages of math every day that would have been a school day. Please complete 2 pages of science twice per week and 2 pages of social studies twice per week.

If you need assistance, please email me at cgolembiewski@hesk6.us between the hours of 9:00am-1:00pm Monday through Friday and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Please check this web page for updates.

It is important that your child brings the
purple folder back with all work, completed and not completed, when we return to school.

Thank you and stay safe.

Mrs. G.

For Speech related questions or if you would like to contact the speech teacher, Ms. Sarah, for speech activities you can do at home with your child, please email her at swichilfil@hesk6.us 

--------------------------------------------------------------------









 Please watch your child's folder every day for homework. Reading and spelling homework will be given most days and should not take more than 10 minutes for your child to complete. Please do not spend more than 10 minutes having your child complete homework. 

For students using the Stevenson Program, words are to be written twice on one side with the pattern underlined and again on the folded side by memory. This helps the brain remember the spelling rather than just copying the words. Also for the Stevenson Program, be sure your child reads the assigned page out loud to an adult every night.


If they are having difficulty, please write on the homework page what they were having trouble with and I will work with them. Homework will reinforce skills we have already been working on so nothing will be new for them.
Thank you!
