Welcome to First Grade!
We miss our students!
We will continue to update this page for you to help your child at home while we are distance learning. 

As always, reach out to your child's teacher via email or class dojo if you have any questions or concerns! We are in this together!

Following Virginia state superintendent guidance, PWCS will use a phased approach to supporting our students learning while they are at home (this is subject to change based on circumstances). Our goal is to ensure that all students and families are supported, but not overwhelmed by our support and guidance during this unprecedented health emergency and school closure. None of this work is for submission to a teacher or for a grade. The use of these resources is completely optional and we encourage parents to preview the learning resources prior to students using them to determine which ones are most appropriate for your family to support the learning of your student(s) at home.

Please refer to the PWCS Home Learning Page for more detailed information.
