    K-2 Parent Workshop: Bridging the Gap Between Home and School; Helping Your Child Thrive with Virtual or In-Person Schooling 

    January 14 
    6pm-7pm
     
    Our speaker Marie Mounteer has been an educator for 13 years, she supports schools, districts, and teachers all over the world with reading and writing workshop education. She will give you a vision of how to support not only your child's academic growth but their social-emotional growth as well. She will give you concrete ways to support alphabet knowledge, early writing development, and foster a love of reading and writing. She will also explain some of the challenges of online learning and give you a vision of how to support your child and help them maximize their virtual lessons. 
     
    She will do a 50-minute presentation and there will be a 10-minute question and answer session at the end. 
     
    Post-Workshop Resources:
    The Family Video Collections - These collections help parents and caregivers with ways to support their children with reading, writing, phonics, and finding and accessing books - especially digital book collections.  The videos are between 3 and 9 minutes in length, on a variety of topics, and we'll be adding new videos to the collection periodically. The videos will be captioned in Spanish and Mandarin so that more families can access these resources. They include:

  • Parent Workshop on our Remote Learning Instructional Plan

     

    At Wappingers CSD our primary commitment is to the students and families we serve. In response to the NYS Governor's Orders, the District has completed our NYS Assurance Certified School Re-Opening Plan.  This plan aligns with the requirements assigned to us by the State of New York. 

     

    We know that the start of this school year will be unlike any other, and we know that there are still many questions that need to be answered.  With that being said, we are pleased to announce the start of the Parent University Workshop Series for the 2020-2021 school year. 

     
    The first workshop will discuss our Remote Learning Instructional Plan for students in grades K-12.  In this session, you will learn about the Remote Learning Instructional Plan for all of our students in grades K-12; its synchronous and asynchronous Instructional components; and about our Parent University Workshop offerings that are coming in the 2020-2021 school year.
     
    This first workshop will be offered twice on Thursday September 3rd.  The first session will be held at 2pm.  The second, encore presentation will be held at 6pm.
     
    The workshop will be live streamed from our video streaming website.  In addition the following form will be activated at the start of the meeting for families to use to ask questions live throughout the presentation (Please note, the form will not be accepting responses until the workshop begins).
     

     
    We are hoping to accommodate as many families as possible by offering these two sessions.
