Governor Murphy announced that al schools will continue online teaching until the end of the school year. Which means school continues... but online.
It will be tempting for the children to think that school is over, but it is extremely important that they stay engaged.
Online learning is going to be a part of their lives, and we parents and teachers, need to make sure our children continue to learn despite the challenges.

On Monday morning we are starting a new unit about hair.  We will start by watching the Oscar-nominated short movie called Hair Love, and our students will write their "hair story."

We are hoping to receive some updates in the coming days about school re-opening. All the teachers will start working on our reopening plan this week, even-though we have no date yet.
 
Do not forget to fill-out the census. It is very important for the city of Newark and the state of New Jersey to be counted accurately, so that we are represented properly and receive resources according to our population. The Census is mandatory and safe. Your information will stay confidential.
