Wow! What a school year it turned out to be! I would like to send out a huge appreciation to all of you for taking on the role of being your child's teacher at home in addition to being their parent/guardian. Not only did the students make it through, but so did all of you! It was great seeing many of you during the supply pick up. I appreciate the thoughtful gifts and letters I received.
Your child's report cards were scheduled to go out today. However, there were some tech issues I encountered so Mr. Takeguchi will be looking into this today. I will send it out as soon as possible.
Student contact/email list
Several students showed an interest in being able to continue communication with their peers. Their PRE gmail account is intended for school use so I invite you to share an email address that you permit to be put on a list that will be shared with other classmates.

Email collection form
The students are also welcome to email me if they want to share anything with me throughout the summer. I'd love to hear from them to see how they are doing.
Summer learning options
Unfortunately, iReady will not be available through the summer. As long as the programs are still free to use, the students are welcome to use Actively Learn, KidBiz, BrainPop, and Epic. I believe many of these companies offered free-use through the end of June. Prodigy and Khan Academy should continue to be available beyond the end of June. Khan Academy has a beta for Reading.
I will leave the class site up until mid-July in case you needed to access anything from it. I tried uploading the slideshow to our class site, but it said the file was too huge and suggested I compress it first. I will try and see if that works but I also put the link below.
Link to slideshow
I'm so happy that so many students showed up for our final WebEx. Here is the link to the slideshow I created for the class.

Thank you for your support and understanding throughout the school year, especially during distance learning. The way the year ended wasn't quite what anyone expected, but we made the best of the situation and got through it together. Wishing your child the best in the years to come. I hope everyone has a great summer!
