I want you to know that as a staff, we know there are many uncertainties with distance learning. We understand that uncertainty can cause many feelings within your family. Know that as your Jaguar family, we will embark on this very different school year confidently that if we work together we can accomplish anything! I know there will be challenges to overcome, frustrations, and even failures, but we are committed to working through them and to problem-solve together. We love our Jaguars and are deeply committed as a staff to providing a high-quality learning experience to prepare them for the next grade level and beyond.
During our distance learning, students will engage in a combination of "live" Zoom sessions with their teacher and classmates, as well as time spent independently on assignments their teacher has posted to Seesaw (grades K-1) and CANVAS (grades 2-5). For more detailed information about the schedule, click on "schedules" at the top of our website. There you will be able to access your child's grade level weekly schedule.
We look forward to starting this school year, to getting to know your child as an individual and to meet the needs of all of our Jaguars in partnership with you and our community!
To our JAGUARS...
We believe in you. We are here for you. You are capable of great things. You are respected. You are listened to. You are unique. You are worth it. We expect great things. We will never give up on you. We care about you. Your success is our success. We are in this together.
Jaguars...YOU are the reason we are here!
What's our motto?
Jaguars, STRIVE and RISE!
Here's to an amazing year at Spanaway Elementary!
