Thank you, teachers!
I appreciate the West Des Moines Community Schools attempts to bring elementary orchestra students together. Mostly they are just checking in with their teacher and getting encouragement. My son is loving it. But it also means a lot of help, guidance, and resources on our end to help him connect.
In this house we are finding it incredibly difficult to work from home AND give our kids the support they need at this time, let alone engage in distance learning. I feel for all the families, students, teachers, and administrators trying to navigate this challenging time.
