I hope this message finds everyone well and you all stay that way. This is a strange time in our collective history. A time that requires great flexibility and community mindedness. While this is not how any of us wanted spring to unfold, this has become a time of musts and not wants.
Friday was a bit of a whirlwind, for Trillium and for all of MRA. In just a few hours we held the spring performance, said goodbye to one of our classmates who is moving out of state over spring break, scrambled prepared to send home, and then it snowed!
The work for this week will not need to be turned in; it was intended to give students something to work on and to continue to practice the skills we are working on in class. I hope your child was able to show you some of the skills they are working on in reading, writing, and math.
PREPARATION FOR OUR VIRTUAL CLASSROOM
Despite the ever changing status of our community health, I want to reassure all, and the Trillium especially, that I am here to support them. Mrs. Harris, Ms. Fety and I are all working together to cultivate the best possible learning experiences for our k-2 students. Our Google Classrooms will be ready for learning on April 1st.
As Google Classrooms requires an email address, our computer teacher Mr. Mahr has made each student an account. This is the format: first initial, last name (including any hyphens), last two numbers of the year they graduate from 8th grade, @mra-k8.com
Class of 2028= Kindergarten
Class of 2027=1st graders
Example: Jane Smith, 1st grader= firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents, older siblings, we are relying on your help to ensure your Trillium have your help navigating their new Google Classrooms.
To log in, you need to type the whole address into Google. This includes the @mra- k8.com.
Passwords are all "mrastudent"
If you want to change your student's password, you can, but please share the new passwords with me at the following: CHANGE PASSWORD
Gmail is currently turned off. You can still access Google Classroom and Google Drive.
Please try logging in over the next week and a half. Let you know if you have questions.
There won't be any official work until April 1st.
I am looking forward to rolling out our virtual classroom, and getting the chance to connect with you all. We are going to get through this, and we are going to do it together!
