During this challenging time the learning and engagement has continued for our students and families at The Madelaine Halmos Academy. We are accomplishing this by virtually connecting to students through email and ClassDojo messages which include lessons, instructional support, and enrichment activities.

Our teachers are sending out weekly newsletters to our families that include each week’s learning focus, class updates and important reminders. Teachers are also engaging students by including live instruction, special projects, and picture sharing. Our team is looking forward to continuing to serve you and we will continue to make the most of our remote learning experience until we are all back together again.
