Spring Grove Teachers now have daily office hours and meeting times.
Parents—The teachers will be available for emails, google meetings, etc. during their office hours. The purpose of the office hours is to provide you and your child a way to check in and get support on the work that has been provided. The District will be working on mobile hotspots and chromebook loaners in the event that school remain closed and online instruction takes over after spring break.
Grade level meeting times—During the listed times, your teachers will reach out via google meet, zoom, facebook live, class dojo, etc. We have staggered the times so that those families who only have one device will each have their own grade level time.
PE Activities Online: We will be posting daily PE videos on the Distance Learning page (under PE). Students can also join the FB group SG Tigers in Action for more PE information and to share their activities.
Spring Grove parent Courtney Evans, the owner of Kamal Yoga Studio in Hollister, is providing FREE yoga sessions for SG families. Fridays at 1:30 and Saturdays at 11:00 am. The Zoom Meeting ID is: 409 448 4412.

Suicide Prevention Awareness
If you or someone you know is suicidal, get help immediately via 911, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or the Crisis Text Line (text “HOME” to 741741).
Suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide frequently give warning signs. Do not be afraid to ask about suicidal thoughts. Never take warning signs lightly or promise to keep them secret.

By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades. Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way. Children learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. AVID Elementary students take structured notes and answer and ask high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. Find out more about Spring Grove's AVID Program.
Orton-Gillingham Trained Teachers
Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. It also was the first approach to use multi-sensory teaching strategies to teach reading, which is considered extremely effective for teaching students with dyslexia. Find out more about Spring Grove's Orton-Gillingham Program.
