Please joins us every Tuesday from 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm for P.S. 253Q - Parenting Through the Pandemic Series
Synergize & Stay Connected
Dear Families of P.S.253Q,
I want to take the time to thank and celebrate you for your patience and understanding as we work to create a robust and purposeful Remote Learning experience for all of our students. We recognize that there are tremendous amounts of responsibilities thrusted upon you and because you are a key contributor to helping students maintain their academic gains accomplished, prior to school closures. It’s important that you know, the school staff is here to support YOU and ALL students, every step along this journey.
While our City is still quarantined and social- distancing, it is natural to begin feeling loneliness, sadness and even anxiety as you experience the effects and think about when things will go back to “normal”. As you are home with family, I encourage you to stay safe and also stay connected. Here are 5 things you can do to have fun and stay connected:
2)-Play a board game
3)-Create a weekly Story Time Hour
4)-Play Freeze Dance
5)-Sign up for a family Go Noodle accountto keep everyone moving and
Parents and Caregivers, I also invite you to join our Connections & Conversations and Parenting Through the Pandemic Series, where you will gain additional tips and strategies to support Remote Learning and self-care. While we remain at home, it is our goal to ensure daily high quality academic experiences for all students. You can help by:
1) Establishing a daily routine that includes time to eat, sleep, play, work, study
2) Encouraging your child to read every day for 20-30 minutes
3) Ensuring that
your child is building Math skills on Kahn Academy for 30
4) Ensuring that your child visits Google Classroom & submit required
5) Communicating regularly with your child’s teachers Informs you if he/she
needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Giving your child opportunities to ask you and their teachers questions
Let’s continue to be safe and healthy as we R.O.A.R towards success with Resilience…
Remember, this month we will Synergize & Stay Connected
