Hello Paxson 4th Grade Families,

We hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe during this unusual time.  It is hard not to be seeing our students face to face, and we recognize it’s hard for you to teach them at home.  We will get through this, working together.  

We are planning together as a 4th grade team, as a school, and as a district to come up with a blueprint for online learning.   Here is where we are right now: 

This week, March 24-27, students are asked to participate in online learning using the mcpsmt.org website. Our Teaching and Learning department has provided a daily schedule to keep students’ minds sharp while we await our next steps.  All of the activities are useful and friendly to navigate. Below is how you can access the daily plans:

  1.   Go to mcpsmt.org
  2.   Click on COVID-19 on the bottom of the page.
  3.   Click on Remote Learning on the right side of the page.
  4.   Scroll down to Remote Learning Opportunities. Click on Grades 3-5. 
  5.   This will bring you the daily plans with learning links.

In addition to the ideas provided by the district, we encourage students to log onto their Google Classroom to make sure they are connected with us.  

We know you have a lot of questions. Please stay informed through the superintendent’s updates, which he posts on the district website and sends via Blackboard messages, as is the most current information. District level communications will come out on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays by 3:00 pm. School level communications will come out on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 3:00 pm.  

You can also email any of us with questions.  We can email you back or set up a time to talk.  

This is new to all of us.  We are going to be learning together. Thank you for your patience during this time, and we will be in touch regarding our next steps.   We miss you lots and hope you stay well.  

Sending you all virtual hugs,

The 4th Grade Team
