It feels a bit strange sitting in an empty, quiet classroom writing preschool news!
I never thought I would long for noise!
I do miss all the little insistent outcries of "Mrs. C! Mrs. C!", & me thinking: "Good grief! Can't he/she wait a little bit for an answer?"
And I miss the hectic activities & excitement as children crowd around Mrs. A & me to work on a project... or get a turn painting...or play in the sand...or come for help because someone took something, did not share, won't take a turn...
I miss all these little people a lot!!
Well, I have a feeling, parents are dealing with some of those things now at home.
Prayers are coming your way! I hope everyone at your house is healthy, safe & all grown-ups are armed with patience and humor!
We are facing a challenge we haven't had to deal with before.
Corona Virus is messing with our schedules & comfort zones.
, Corona Virus is also giving us the opportunity to become creative & find solutions to the challenges presented!
Some of you have inquired about learning challenges on line. St.James is lucky enough to get support from the Public School here in Washington.
You may get ideas/ help on "St.James Elementary Home Activities" pdf.
Parent teacher Conferences were to happen on April 6 & 7 , between 3:30 & 7:30 p.m.
Social Distancing will not allow face to face conferences!
Parent/Teacher Conferences will now be held by phone
on April 6th & 7th
at the time you reserved!
Several of you have scheduled conferences already. Thank you!
Becky confirmed your time and a note was sent home with your child.

Thank you so much for your patience and your willingness to work with all of us here at St.James!
