Dear SLE Students, We hope you are all healthy and happy. Ms. Metcalf and I miss you so much and we know your teachers do too. Although school is always important and we want you to complete all the work teachers assign you, we also want to make sure that you and your family are staying healthy and safe. Please follow all the rules about being safe during this time. We love you and don’t want you to get sick. All of you should be assigned to your Google Classroom by now. All of you have more than one classroom because the specialists also made a classroom so you can continue to learn and grow in yoga, art, music, PACCK ,PE, and technology. Some of you may have even more classrooms assigned to you. If you need help, you or your parent (grandparent, aunt, uncle, anyone) can text your teacher or email me and we will get you help.
