The Very Last Activities and Assignments Page!

Dear Parents,

Well, here it is.  Our last resource list- just a few fun activities as we finish out the school year!

Thank you again for encouraging your students to check in with me at least twice a week.  I’m not checking to see how much work they’ve done so much as making sure they are okay and to see if they have any questions or concerns.  They can check in by:

  • Sending an email to cgentry@fusdk12.net

  • Making a comment on our Google classroom page

  • Using the beginning of the week and end of the week check in forms

We understand that many families are under a lot of stress right now- whether from health concerns, economic uncertainty, or from having family and friends out of reach. If you think your child(ren) would benefit from an emotions check-in with Ms. Cross, the school counselor, or your family needs resources, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfgnud5izegOxlZmgYorzeTNVVg14r92Z5Je9miIzlejdinMg/viewform

Wishing you and yours health and wellness.  Thank you for your support at home!

~Ms Gentry
