With school closures, classroom quarantines, and staffing shortages, how can you ensure your child with learning differences can continue to develop reading skills and learn?
Join Bookshare, Understood.org, and two students with their parents, to share reading strategies, tips, and resources that can support students with learning differences such as dyslexia, in the classroom and at home.
This webinar is intended for parents of children who struggle to read and is open to the public. Bookshare is a FREE ebook library, funded by the US Department of Education, that empowers students with reading barriers such as dyslexia, cerebral palsy, visual impairment, and blindness, to read in ways that work for them. Understood.org helps those who learn and think differently discover their potential, take control, find community, and stay on positive paths along each stage of life’s journey.

Due to current labor and supply chain conditions, there will be reduced variety of lunch menu items for the time being. Beginning Monday, November 15, lunches will be provided in a “kit” consisting of yogurt, string cheese, crackers, breakfast bar, fresh fruit, vegetable and choice of 1% white or fat free chocolate milk. We anticipate conditions to improve soon and will be moving back to the typical lunch menu at that time. Lunches remain free for all students during the 2021-22 school year. More information about school lunch can be found here.
Sunny Hills is having a school-wide, spirit day on Friday, October 29 that we
are calling Celebrate YOU Day. Students can participate by wearing something
school that is special to them, and by following any other guidance their
teachers may provide. For instance, in some classes, students may celebrate
by dressing up as their favorite book character. Other students, may
participate by wearing their favorite shirt, uniform, or school appropriate
costume that is special to them. The purpose is to make it fun and inclusive
Since students who participate will be wearing the same thing all day,
students may not wear anything that interferes with the normal operation of
the school day (they must be able to run at PE and recess, use the restroom
independently, take their backpacks and coats on and off, etc.) Any masks or
coverings that obscure identity, or extra accessories, props or weapons must
be left at home. This day is truly about Celebrating YOU and anything
students choose to wear must portray positive images and not be offensive or
inappropriate in any way. Items that demean any race, religion, nationality,
disability or gender are not allowed. We look forward to celebrating all our
Mustangs on Friday, October 29!
So we made it through September and I feel like it was a success. Everyone is getting used to the routines and how to interact with classmates and teachers through the day. This week I could see progress just watching students lining up for transitions. We are getting used to our new normal.
