Miss Morrone

Dear Parents and Guardians of Westchester Hills School 29 Community,

I am excited to start the 2020-2021 school year with you and your child. Although this year is starting incredibly different, it is more important than ever that we we work together- teacher and parent- to provide your child with a robust educational experience to achieve academic success. I understand we may be enduring rough times, however, as educators we must ensure students are receiving the best possible instruction, as well as, programs and related services.   

 As a Resource Teacher, I reteach concepts taught in the classroom and support progression towards meeting annual educational goals as dictated by the IEP (Individualized Education Plan.) Students are also provided with the individualized enrichment instruction in math, reading, writing, and study skills. The smaller setting caters to specialized lessons and is more conducive to students specific learning needs. The ultimate goal is to provide students with essential long-term academic skills so they no longer need Resource. 

 I will post assignments students can work on as extra assignments to meet IEP goals. I will be available from 9 am to 3 pm to assist students with classroom assignments and individual assignments. Students can send me an email with an attachment. I will respond shortly thereafter with step-by-step instructions/directions. 

Remember, parents and guardians, reading every day with your child is not just a great practice that will improve your child's literacy skills, but it is also a way to support your child emotionally during these uncertain times. Simple measures like reviewing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills with your child will help with automatic recall of these basic facts. I encourage you to use the CLEVER Platform to access a wide variety of online educational activities that will benefit and entertain your child. 

I want to stress to parents and guardians that Westchester Hills School 29 understands that the online educational process is challenging and every family has its own level of familiarity and capacity as it relates to the use of technology. What is truly important during this time is that your child attempts to do the best they can with what tools they have available. Caring for your child's emotional needs is just as important as their educational needs. I understand the need to balance both, and I ask that you contact me with any questions you may have. 

Please remain safe and be well! 

Sincerely,

Miss Monica Morrone

Miss Morrone

Dear Parents and Guardians of Westchester Hills School 29 Community,

I am excited to start the 2020-2021 school year with you and your child. Although this year is starting incredibly different, it is more important than ever that we we work together- teacher and parent- to provide your child with a robust educational experience to achieve academic success. I understand we may be enduring rough times, however, as educators we must ensure students are receiving the best possible instruction, as well as, programs and related services.   

 As a Resource Teacher, I reteach concepts taught in the classroom and support progression towards meeting annual educational goals as dictated by the IEP (Individualized Education Plan.) Students are also provided with the individualized enrichment instruction in math, reading, writing, and study skills. The smaller setting caters to specialized lessons and is more conducive to students specific learning needs. The ultimate goal is to provide students with essential long-term academic skills so they no longer need Resource. 

 I will post assignments students can work on as extra assignments to meet IEP goals. I will be available from 9 am to 3 pm to assist students with classroom assignments and individual assignments. Students can send me an email with an attachment. I will respond shortly thereafter with step-by-step instructions/directions. 

Remember, parents and guardians, reading every day with your child is not just a great practice that will improve your child's literacy skills, but it is also a way to support your child emotionally during these uncertain times. Simple measures like reviewing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills with your child will help with automatic recall of these basic facts. I encourage you to use the CLEVER Platform to access a wide variety of online educational activities that will benefit and entertain your child. 

I want to stress to parents and guardians that Westchester Hills School 29 understands that the online educational process is challenging and every family has its own level of familiarity and capacity as it relates to the use of technology. What is truly important during this time is that your child attempts to do the best they can with what tools they have available. Caring for your child's emotional needs is just as important as their educational needs. I understand the need to balance both, and I ask that you contact me with any questions you may have. 

Please remain safe and be well! 

Sincerely,

Miss Monica Morrone
