Mrs. Floyds week one informational letter
March 16, 2020
Dear Academy for Middle Years (A.M.Y.) Northwest families:
Below please find resources for continued learning. The first link is to the district webpage. There you will be able to find learning guides that are separated by grade and subject area and aligned to state standards. These guides are also available in print at all 30 grab-and –go meal distribution sites beginning tomorrow, March 17th. In addition to the packets, teachers will be posting assignments in their google classrooms for students to work on that are an extension of the work they were doing prior to school closing on Friday. All students can also access their Achieve 3000 and I-Ready accounts to complete online practice. All students should read 30-60 minutes each day, a book of their choice. Please keep a log of what you are reading each day. There is also a list below of non-web based activities that the students can enjoy and explore. We know that not everyone will have access to the internet; please do what you can, some things can be accessed via the phone. Please reach out if you need any support, email@example.com.
Be safe and be well.
