Tiger News 5-5-2020
Happy Tuesday and May!
I hope this update finds you all well. I want to start by thanking all of you and your students for taking time to give us feedback last week over the phone and by google. We had 98% participation from our families this week! THAT IS AMAZING! While we were dipping our toes into online distance learning, it is important to hear from all of our families to gain understanding of how we can better serve you. This week we created a short GOOGLE FORM SURVEY, that your students can access through their Tiger Team Classroom. We ask that you please encourage your kids to please complete it as it will help us identify important trends that will help us improve as educators in this new platform.
