AJW Learning Resources During School Closures

Dear families,


Thank you so much for your flexibility as we have launched resources to support our Engineers during the required school closures! Please remember that our building is open tomorrow (Wednesday, March 24) from 7:30-5 PM to pick up a child’s packet if you requested one on the survey.
 
The learning resources for your child can also be found at this link to our school Google site:
 
AJW Google Online Resources
 
On the top banner of the website listed above there is a tab called “Grade Level eLearning Plans.” In this tab you will find all of the plans for each grade level, organized by day. Each day coordinates with a day of eLearning. For example, Day 1 correlates to Thursday, March 19; Day 2 is Tuesday, March 24 due to school holidays; Day 3 is Wednesday, March 25, etc).
 
The header banner of this website also contains an area for school updates as well as a variety of other online learning resources and activities for your child to use as extension opportunities. This link is located on our school homepage for easy access and posted on teacher webpages.
  
Finally, please remember that we are here to help! I am confident that our students will continue to grow and learn as we progress through this challenge. Thank you again!
 
Sincerely,
Susan Stevens and the AJW Staff
