    Dear Kindergarten, 1st & 2nd Grade Parents,     

    We wanted to share with you how the grading process will work, as we take grades for the 4th and final quarter this school year using the new resource textbooks. 

    The overall grades for all of the work in this time period will be added to the grade book for each of the 4 subjects of ELA, Math, Science, and History/Social Studies.  The final grade for each subject will be the average of the assignments completed during the 4th quarter if that grade is higher than what they earned in the 3rd quarter. If the average of the work done at home is lower than what the student earned in the 3rd quarter, the 3rd quarter grade will also be their 4th quarter grade.

     

    Work Submission Options:

    • Submit completed Google Form quizzes by clicking on “submit” at the end of the quiz  (Grades 1 & 2)
    • Send a picture of completed work through email or class dojo messaging
    • Keep and return all required work to school once school resumes 

     

    We know everyone is worried about their child being ready for next year.  We want to assure you that by completing the work given, your child will learn the new skills necessary to prepare them for moving onto the next  grade.  

    The support you are giving your child at home is appreciated and we thank you for the extra time you are devoting to make sure our students continue learning during this unusual time.  As always, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher or myself if you have any questions. 

     

    Thank you,

    Dr. Sally Perano

    McNair Principal

    Message from Special Area Teachers:

     

    Parents, so that students may submit videos or turn in work, Special area teachers created Google Classrooms and calendars for the remaining month of school. You may submit your work there and we can see it and make comments.  We would love to see your projects, singalongs, or exercise activities.  If you do not wish to join the classroom, the calendar will still be available on the schools’ website.

  • Change in Distribution of Materials / New Pick-up Dates

    Posted by Dr. Perano on 4/15/2020 6:15:00 PM

    April 15, 2020

    Good Evening McNair Families!

    I hope you are all doing well.  At this time we have made a change in the distribution of materials for students in Grade K-2 and for those students in grades 3-5 who do not have internet access for efficiency and timeliness. In preparation to deliver further instruction to your child, we have developed another plan at McNair for picking up essential items. These items include chromebooks, chargers, hotspots, medications, and instructional materials for Kindergarten through second grade and also for those students in Grades 3-5 who do not have internet access.

    We will implement a “drive-thru” strategy for our pick up. We would like for all parents to enter the school parking lot using the main entrance by the marquee and pull up to the school by the main entrance using the lane closest to the sidewalk. Please stay in your car and a staff member will greet you, ask for your child’s name and grade level, and note the items you need and then bring these to your vehicle and drop them into your trunk.  There will be no need to get out of your car. 

    Please be patient with us, as we are not yet aware of the level of volume we will experience at different times of the day and we will have limited staff on hand in order to observe current CDC restriction guidelines on group gatherings.

    Please see the pick-up days/times below.

    Friday, April 17th, Tuesday, April 21st,  and Wednesday, April 14th

    Each day from 12:00-4:00pm

    During times like these, it is so important that we all come together as a community and please know that we most assuredly appreciate all of your support.  Please continue to take good care of you and yours.

    Dr. Sally Perano

  • Material Pick-up Announcement

    Posted by Hazelwood School District on 4/15/2020 5:15:00 PM

    Dear Hazelwood School District Parents:

    We’ve heard your feedback and as a result, we will return to the original plan on how learning materials, Chromebooks, and medications will be distributed. In an effort to get learning materials to students in an efficient and timely manner, we are asking you or a member of your family to pick up these items from the school. 

    Please expect a call from your building principal with dates and times available for picking up these materials for your child. For your convenience, your principal will be available on multiple days to reduce traffic and adhere to social distancing. They will also share instructions for the line-up process in front of the school for motorists or those traveling on foot. Medication and Chromebooks will also be available for pick up if this is relevant to your child.

    By Friday of this week, we will place a list of all pick-up dates and times on the District’s website and we will send via PeachJar. We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your time and attention.

    Dear Parents of K - 2nd grades,

     I hope you all are doing well and staying healthy.  I know I speak for the McNair Staff when I say that we are deeply saddened that we are not connected with your children on a daily basis.  Please hug your child(ren) and let them know that we all miss them! 

    The Hazelwood School District is committed to getting instructional materials in your hands.  By the end of this week, I should have all workbooks for Kindergarten - 2nd grade organized, packaged and ready for mailing.  Our primary students will have workbooks for reading, math, science & social studies.  Kindergarten and first grade will have 2 reading workbooks and 1 each for math, science & social studies, while second grade will receive 1 workbook for each content area.

     Each grade level is planning instructional activities one week at a time.  Each teacher will continue to share the upcoming week’s activities through email or Dojo or Google classroom, but you can also find them posted on our school website.  For our students receiving additional support for various reasons, you may also reach out to those teachers for academic support.

    To help balance the academic learning provided by the content workbooks, we are encouraging students to also:

    1. Read or be read to for at least 20 minutes each day.
    2. Choose a special area activity to participate in or complete each day.  (You can find these activities on the MCnair Elementary School Website)

    I am aware that what we are all experiencing can be stressful for adults and for children.  While we want students to participate in learning Monday-Friday, please help support your child’s learning by also providing daily brain breaks of fun, preferred activities.  Classroom teachers will continue to provide support through Google Classroom, Dojo, email, and for some, Google Meets.  We are all in this together...and together we will come out better and stronger than ever!

    Your partner in education,

    Dr. Sally Perano

    Principal
