Today's News from Denise and Tammy

Dear Parents,

We love seeing the photos that you are sending us of your children enjoying the videos and other learning activities! As we are all missing each other, we will be posting them on our social media pages for all to enjoy. The children in particular will gain a lot from seeing their friends' doing the same thing they are doing at home.

As our newsletter evolves, we'd like to hear what your favorite/most useful (and least) aspects are. Our teachers will continue working diligently preparing daily activities for our students to enjoy and learn from at home and we want this to be a meaningful and educational experience for all of you!

Please note that all of these emails are available on our website for you to refer to as needed: The Beth Am ECC Virtual Playroom Newsletters
