Dear Darlings from Room 108,
I hope each of you are all doing well during this strange and confusing time. I know this isn't how we planned to end the year, but know that I miss all of you so much. I miss your laugh, your smile, your stories, and being able to see you each day. Even though this isn't what we had planned, we will get through it together!

I am so proud of you and all the hard word work you showed me this year. Please keep working hard and trying your best- be creative and show me all the fun things you are learning and doing at home. Even though I am not there for you in person, I am still here for you! Always.
I know that you miss your classmates and coming to school... I miss it too! I've included some pictures below for you to see. See if you can find yourself! I'd love to hear back from you about what you have been doing this past week and if you were able to read or listen to a new book that you really liked. Your parents will be getting an e-mail from me about a fun way for us to stay connected. I will be working on that later today. Even though we aren't able to be together now, we are still a family and are here for each other. Each one of you are so very special to me, so loved by me, and so very missed. ❤️

All my love,
Mrs. Noble

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Unfortunately as you know, it has been declared all public and private schools in Virginia are closed until at least the end of the academic year. I know this has been a shock for all of us. My heart hurts because I never thought Friday, March 13th would be the last day that I gave and got my final hugs and goodbyes from my students who were there. This isn't how any of us wanted the year to end. I will miss our morning meetings, talking with your children, making them laugh, and so so much more.

As of right now, Prince William County has provided this link for help for ideas with home learning:
On this page, there are details regarding expectations for optional at home instruction during the current closure. If you haven't already, I highly suggest that you visit this resource page for more information on what a daily schedule could look like for your child with links for online learning (in reading, writing, math, music, art, fitness, etc). At this point, teachers are waiting to hear what our next steps will look like with this school closure.

Coming Soon: A Fun Way for Room 108 to Stay Connected
I have decided to create a Class Dojo account as a way for students and parents to stay connected with me during this new transition. I will be sending out an e-mail today asking you to join the Class Dojo page, however, if you do not receive and e-mail by 5pm today, then please e-mail at nobleaq@pwcs.edu and I will add you to our page!
Additional Links: I have included some links that your children are familiar with. Please email and let me know if you need their logins for RazKids or Dreambox! These programs can be played on tablets, phones, and on computers.
