Brennemann Elementary school has now completed almost FOUR weeks of virtual learning. By the end of the first week, we had a high of 91% attendance!! Our goal moving forward is 95% attendance. The administrative team did 8 home visits and made many phone calls to get more students involved. Also, our half-day Pre-k teachers visited all of their students at home. Thank you parents for all that you are doing to support your child during remote learning. We cannot do this without you! The teachers are beginning to dive right into the curriculum and we’re already seeing SO much learning taking place. This team effort has been stupendous and we’re excited to keep moving along. Please know, we will host virtual curriculum night on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 during two 30 minute sessions between 5:30PM- 6:30PM. More information regarding this will be forthcoming!
