"What would you like to see happen in our Remote World?"

Dear Parents,

We may not physically be in a school building, but remotely we are still in school!

There is much information that goes home thoughout the school year and to make sure this continues, we are asking everyone to register with your email and your cell phone number by May 20th.  This way we can send home materials, report cards, and other info. 

To register click on the link below↓


Everyone is going through some kind of changes right now, but we are all in this together and if there is anything I can do to help you please reach out to me!

Stay safe!

Family Fun at Home Tips

“Family Fun at Home Tips” from Mrs. Boltax.


Gather your at home learners for some fun and educational short films with @MoMAlearning: there are questions after each film to discuss with your family! Ages 6+


Play “I Spy Cleanup” - Set a time to put away as many items until the time runs out. Parent calls out the item for child to race towards, grab and put away. -Mrs. Boltax


April is National Letter and Card Writing Month! Have fun making cards or writing letters to your teacher, Principal or Assistant Principal, favorite stuffed animal, or anyone you love!


One way to get moving is to play Freeze Dance! One person is the DJ and in control of the music. When the music starts, start dancing! As soon as the DJ pauses the music - FREEZE!


Go on an alphabet scavenger hunt! Make a poster with the alphabet and have your child search for items that begin with each letter. Have them write it as they find the items!


Encourage art activities. Have your children cut out pics or words from old magazines and old wrapping paper to make a collage! Post a pretty collage your child made!
