ACAII Elementary Updates
Welcome back! We are thrilled to have your students back in school. Yesterday and today we have been learning our new schedule & routines. The most important thing we are doing is creating a safe learning community where kids are free to try, make mistakes, try again, and celebrate together.
Because of the nature of our learning this week, goal books will not be sent home. We will begin sending goal books home daily starting next Monday.
If you haven’t already, please review our google slide deck explaining the changes we’ve made in elementary.
