We see this as a potential series throughout the quarantine, so please let us know if you like this format. Enjoy!

**If you'd like to listen to just the audio while you're driving to work, taking a walk outside, or folding laundry, you won't miss much! The majority of content on the PowerPoint slides we used was just to reinforce what we were chatting about. You can always go back later to the specific slide using the timestamps.

INNOVATION CHALLENGE - Our ACE team has put together an exciting week of fun at-home challenges and tasks that will keep the kiddos busy and engaged with STEM! Please encourage your student to participate as much as possible.

Each day you participate, your family will be entered into a drawing to win a pizza dinner delivered to your home!

PROGRESSBOOK TUTORIALS - Through our Parent Survey, we found that it would be helpful to provide some resources for navigating ProgressBook. Especially during this time, we know it is important to keep track of your student's academic progress. Here are a few video tutorials to help you use the platform like a pro!
