Hello Garden Road Families,
 
Progress Reports Updates
 Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all PUSD schools moved to Distance Learning beginning March 16. As PUSD transitioned to Distance Learning, your child was provided opportunities to participate in learning activities focused primarily on reading, writing, and mathematics. Though rubric/grading marks were not utilized in Distance Learning, feedback was provided by the teacher to the student.
 
Prior to school closures, students had received academic achievement feedback via the Trimester 2 progress report. In all marks for trimester three, “DL” was utilized to denote Distance Learning.

 Summer On-line Learning Resources
  • As I tell the children, school may be closed – but learning never stops.
  • I hope the children will continue to read, write and practice their math all summer long.
  • Many of the on-line resources are accessible during the summer such as Lexia, SORA, MobyMax and others.  Your teachers will share additional resources.
 Earlier this week, our Superintendent sent out a message to all of our PUSD community regarding George Floyd and the events over the past weeks.  I share her depth of sadness over our country struggling with issues of racism and violence as well as the desire to see change.
 
As Dr. Phelps said, “even when we are struggling with what to say and we don’t have all the answers, we must engage our students in difficult conversations and encourage them to ask questions about race and racism. We cannot be silent. This must be a shared responsibility for everyone in this community. Our students are watching and learning from us, and they are counting on us to do better.”
Here are some resources that may be helpful when talking with your children:
