After several weeks of Comprehensive Distance Learning I am seeing students attending Zooms with teachers, engaging in lessons, and demonstrating learning via Seesaw and Google Classroom! I appreciate your efforts in helping your child stay engaged with everything Comprehensive Distance Learning requires.
In the past 7 days on Seesaw students have posted 2367 items, parents and teachers have commented 1000 times, and liked student work 1500 times! That’s truly amazing! We also had 362 family members visit Seesaw to see child’s work. If you have not engaged in Seesaw yet as a parent please do so. Seesaw allows parents access. All you need to do is download the Seesaw Parent App to your phone.
