Below are the links to Google docs for both Amazon Wish Lists and Favorites Lists for each classroom and cultural arts teacher.

Should I look at my 3rd grader's Google Classroom and check for missing assignments everyday? Do I need to sit next to my 1st grader all day while she is in her Google Meet to make sure she is paying attention to the teacher? How much time in the evening, and over the weekend, should my 5th grader be spending on completing his schoolwork? We all want to support our children so that they are successful at virtual learning, but are we actually helping? These questions were addressed at the recent SPES PTA Parent Workshop "How to Support Your Elementary Child During Virtual Learning".  If you missed it, don't worry, we recorded it and you can watch it at
