Week Of March 23rd
Dear Park Shore Families,
I started to write my monthly newsletter and found I could not write my usual letter. I felt I had to address the elephant in the room, Corona Virus. I know the mood and overall atmosphere is very strange now. We are in uncharted waters and no one has seen anything like what we, as a Nation and as a World are facing.
I want you to know that Park Shore has and had been taking many precautions, as was stated in the email that was sent. I know that in the week before we closed I went over basic sanitary skills with all your children. This was done in November as part of our germ unit but as reinforcement during trying times we thought it was a good idea to review. We discussed hand washing skills and practiced again, we talked about touching our faces and putting our hands in our mouth. I know that I am not the only teacher who reinforced these concepts but I also realize they are young.
In order to continue your child’s science education, I have supplied links to the lessons I had planned for last week for you to enjoy at home. Most of these require basic household items. Last week had two major and fun events, St Patrick’s Day and the first day of Spring!!! With that in mind, we were going to start investigating rainbows. I am including the links here for you to try this at home.
As I close my letter, I want you to know how very much I miss your children. I am optimistic that we will be able to continue our Scientific Adventures together soon. I wish you and yours only the very best health and hope this crisis not only ends soon but helps us become a stronger more unified Nation and World.
