<DISTANCE LEARNING>  Week of 6/2/20

Hello Parents and Students, 

Below is an OPTIONAL weekly schedule for students and families to utilize during Home Learning. The schedule is to help with accessing resources, links, and activities; these can be completed at any time. All students are encouraged to engage in the review activities below. These activities align with PWCS's vision of 60 minutes per content area, per week. Students are encouraged to utilize this time to review and remediate objectives from the beginning of the year that they would like to improve on. Our hope is that this structure will help students and parents navigate information; feel free to use these resources as your family needs.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS
:
As a Porter parent it is your responsibility to earn 10 volunteer hours per child enrolled at Porter each year! We have many opportunities in second grade to earn hours (copying
, working with small groups/individuals, chaperoning field trips, helping with special occasions in the classroom, etc.). I appreciate your willingness to share your time and help out in our classroom. I received many of the volunteer forms back and have emailed to begin setting up times! If you are interested in working from home I have made a note of it and will send things home with your child as they are needed. Thank you in advance for all of your help and support!

STUDENT VOLUNTEERS:
Each second grade student is responsible for earning 10 volunteer hours as well! In second grade, students will earn 3 out of the 10 hours through classroom jobs. Please keep track of any additional hours that your child earns in their agenda (page 7).
