I hope you continue to be well, safe and learn how to survive the after-effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
I thank all parents who continue to support us during our transition. I also want to thank our teachers and staff for providing instruction to your children. Our connections with one another are now dependent upon our electronic system, Parent Square and the Varnett website (varnett.org). Parents and students, please check our school’s website daily for current information, updates and educational resources. The Varnett staff continues to make weekly contacts through phone calls, emails, Google Classrooms, Google Hangouts, Class Dojo and Parent Square.
On the weekends, there are a few things I would encourage you and your family to do at home. Read for fun and contribute to a journal. Create a family newspaper. Include comics, editorials, recipes, family pictures drawn by family members and current events. These activities will encourage creativity and improve reading and writing skills. Also, parents and students, go through Clever and click on Rosetta Stone, where you can improve or learn English together as a family goal. English and Spanish speakers can also learn another language. Make sure you check out the Rosetta Stone app through Clever, which can be found at the bottom of our website.
As the learning continues, teachers will post weekly lessons, videos, and activities for the learning process. We are here for you. Please let us know how we may support you. Our theme this year is to “Ride the Wave” because changes occur daily. I ask that you “Ride the Wave” with us as we move forward in educating your child.
Please remember to update any changes to your address, phone number and email address to your child’s teacher and to the East campus clerk, Ms. Ruiz at 281-369-8855 (ext.400).
Thank you for making East campus your school of choice.
