WELCOME TO MRS. LEONARD'S CLASS PAGE!

Case manager for students in the Learning Disabilities Program Grades 2 & 4!


During this time of COVID 19 School Closures, I want you to know how much I miss you! I hope you and your families are well!

PLEASE TAKE THIS TIME FIRST TO ENSURE YOU FOCUS ON YOUR CHILD'S PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH BEFORE FOCUSING ON ACADEMICS: 

TO-GO MEALS ARE BEING PROVIDED ON DAILY BASIS, NO QUESTIONS ASKED, FORM 9:00-11:00 AM DAILY MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AT DESIGNATED SCHOOL LOCATIONS - SEE FOLLOWING LINK:

https://www.pwcs.edu/cms/One.aspx?portalId=340225&pageId=41371166


If any student is in need of emotional support during this stressful time, he/she can email studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu to receive virtual support. Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) will have counselors and other school-based mental health staff respond to any student who needs assistance.

ACADEMIC SUPPORTS:

REMEMBER THAT ONE-ON-ONE ACADEMIC TIME ENABLES YOUR CHILD TO COMPLETE MUCH MORE IN A SHORTER AMOUNT OF TIME. ONLY 1-2 HOURS A DAY OF ACADEMIC SUPPORT IS REASONABLE. BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF IF THINGS GO WELL ONE DAY AND NOT SO WELL THE NEXT DAY. GIVE YOUR CHILD FREQUENT MOVEMENT BREAKS IF THEY HAVE DIFFICULTY WITH FOCUS AND ATTENTION.  IF POSSIBLE, ITS GREAT TO HAVE A ROUTINE, IN WHICH THEY WORK ON ACADEMIC WORK AT THE SAME TIME EVERYDAY. MORNINGS ARE BEST FOR A LOT OF KIDS, AS THEY HAVE JUST EATEN BREAKFAST, GOT DRESSED, AND HAVE A FRESH START ON THE DAY.

HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR USEFUL WEBSITES IN EACH AREA, IN ADDITION TO ONES PROVIDED BY YOUR CHILD'S CLASSROOM TEACHER:
