A Zoom Homeroom!

Among the many things we are grateful for, we are grateful for the folks at Zoom, who have allowed us all to remain close even when we are apart! So what’s a first-grade class to do when they can’t be together? They have a Zoom Homeroom, of course! What a wonderful way to allow these little ones to see and talk to their friends!

I would focus on […]

So when we indeed had to make the decision to move to an all-online platform, it did not catch us off guard. We were ready.  We’ve […]
