    Dear Parent/Guardians and Students,                                                            

    Our school district is participating in virtual learning due to Covid-19 (Coronavirus). While this happens, you will be receiving instruction through online methods starting August 31st. This will include participating in learning activities and demonstrating your mastery of learning targets. 

    Teacher Expectations

    • I will provide 45 minutes of instruction per day per class (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies) or up to 3 hours per day.
    • Participation in activities (comments, logging in, screenshots, etc.)
    • I will use my teacher webpage and Microsoft Teams to provide directions, activities, links, and assessments.   
    • I will use online learning sites such as Reading A-Z, Mystery Science, Freckle Math, etc.

    Student Expectations:

    • You will complete tasks assigned to you on time.
    • You will participate in activities.
    • You will seek help during hours (see below).

    How you will be graded:

    I will use online assessments and checks for understanding. It is important that you complete work assigned.

    • To log onto Microsoft Teams go to Portal.office.com

      1. Use the username to “log on” (example: jheien0932@slps.org  *note it’s different than the email)
      2. It will take you to a secondary log in-do the same as step 1
      3. It will take you to a page that will show multiple apps-Teams is the one we will be using. 
      4. Don’t hesitate to contact me with questions if you need help!
      5. Office Hours: When you should ask for help or check in with me as needed through email, Microsoft Teams or you may text/call 314-956-2403
    Welcome to my PreK class. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I have worked in early childhood settings for 7 years and truly love this age group.  I previously worked as an attorney for 6 years. I am the mother of three wonderful children: Reagan, Charlotte, and Oliver. In my spare time, I like to paint, read, and go to the gym. 
    My goal this school year is to prepare your child for Kindergarten and beyond. I believe that Prek students learn best through exploration, repetition, and hands-on learning.  I build a learning community in my classroom where students build friendships with teachers and other students. Students are encouraged to explore topics about which they are curious. I promote leadership, responsibility, and respect. I look forward to meeting your family and spending the next school year with your child.
    Best regards,
    Jennifer Heien
