PARENT COACHING CORNER
Friday, April 3, 2020
I would like to thank every family that joined me today for Kuser's 1st Parent Coaching Corner. We had a wonderful group of parents participate in our very short but important gathering. Below you will see the presentation that was delivered in English and in Spanish. Please let me know if anyone needs this presentation in Haitian-Creole too.
The Parent Coaching Corners will be held every Friday at 3:30 pm. Your child's teacher will send you the Meeting invitation either through Class Dojo, email, or Google Classroom.
Please remember to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally during this time. We will begin full Remote Learning on Monday, April 13th.
Again, if you would like to reach out to me, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
