Need a little help using some of the programs your child will be using? Here are some videos to help you out!

As we embark on this new journey to “Distance Learning Land,” we know that there will be many bumps on the road. But no worries, we will get there together. We will hold each other’s hand throughout these challenging time. (Then, we’ll wash our hands! Hehehe…)

Below, are 4 tutorial videos Ms. Teahan, one of our fabulous teachers put together. All of them are on YouTube.

Additionally, our VAPA teachers have put together a website/program for your child to have a little art fun. This “Arts at Home” program, as well as the “vapaonline” blog account is designed so that students and parents can choose which lesson they want to do for the week. Your child does not necessarily have to be in a specific class to attempt any or all lessons/activities.
The link to the website is: 
Hope you all have fun watching, learning and creating!

How to get to your child’s email & apps

By now, your child may have already logged into Achieve 3000 at home, and by doing that, they should have first logged into their Office 365 account. If your child has forgotten how to get into Office 365, here is a quick “Cheat Sheet” to help you and your child out. If your child does not remember their username/email account, please let their teacher know.

Weekly Newsletter – Week 28

Hello Parents!

This is going to be a busy week and a fun one at that!


First and foremost, many second grade teachers will begin parent conferences this Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, three days early. Please make sure to double check to see when your conference day and time are scheduled for. PLEASE make sure to be on time. Because most of the conferences will be student led, you’ll need to be on time to make the most of your child’s rotations.


On Tuesday, we are ALL going to the San Diego Zoo. The forecast says it will be raining. Please make sure that your child is dressed accordingly. We highly recommend that they wear a jacket with a hoodie and/or a hat. Please do not send umbrellas. We don’t want students to be carrying more than they have to. If your child is bringing a lunch (which they must) please send it in a backpack. We will be walking a lot and your child will have to carry it themselves the entire time there. So, carrying their lunch in their backpack will be ideal.

Minimum Days begin this Thursday, March 12, 2020 and will continue through Friday, March 20, 2020. Dismissal will be 1:15 PM. Please make sure your child is picked up on time. Because of conferences, they will not be allowed to be in the classrooms after school. Students not picked up on time, will be directed to the office.

We thank you for all your continued support. Have a wonderful week!
