August 2020

We are back to school on Monday, August 24th!  Everyone is looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!!! We will begin with Distance Learning and we are ready!  Students are familiar with the learning platforms, and will receive all the necessary materials to start the year off on the right foot!

3rd Grade will jump into Language Arts with a focus on Opinion Writing and identifying key ideas & details in Literature.  In Math, students will begin to learn the properties of multiplication.

We are excited to introduce our new Social Studies program, Studies Weekly.  In addition to the weekly newspapers, the online platform will be perfect for our Distance Learning!  The Next Generation Science Standards will continue to be taught through hands on labs at home.  3rd Grade will begin the year learning about animal survival & heredity.

We must thank God for watching over our SMA students and families over the past 6 months.  We are blessed to be healthy and to have the opportunity to return to school via Distance Learning.  We will get through this difficult time with God by our side and the love & support of our SMA community.

God is good, ALL the time.
