Explorer Express for 5/11/20
Hello Weatherstone Families! This week we have made some updates to our Explorer Express and our Remote Learning Supports. As our amazing staff also continues to learn during this period of Remote Learning, we have tried to simplyfy reources for families. We also have updated the WES Remote Learning Schedule and will removed links to previous weeks. This should make finding resources easier for families. Here is a link directly to this week's Weekly Links (Positivity Project Lessons, Spirit Week, Counseling Lessons, Morning News) and this week's Special's Lessons,
Each EE will now have 4 main sections of Support: Academic, Social Emotional, Fun Activties, and Technology. Please take a minute to review the links below expecially our new CASS Corner Newsletter, the WES Remote Reading Challenge and this week's Virtual Spirit Week.
Academic Support Links
Social & Emotional Support
We also recognize that the social and emotional needs of your children and family are important at this time. Here is a link to a new weekly newsletter from our Counseling and Student Services staff.
