#GIVINGTUESDAYNOW | A GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING AND UNITY
On May 5, 2020 we come together as a global community…
To give. To help. To thank. To heal.
"Communities United teachers have been making strides in making the distance learning process effective. In these troubling times, in the words of one teacher to our families, “Emotions are high, give children as much time as possible to complete tasks,” recognizing the importance of mental health and reducing stress. Teachers have been helping parents in numerous ways, including creating a schedule for their child’s at home learning, or helping filling out a FASA form for college. Other teachers have been involved in making educational videos, or making activity kits and dropping them off for families. Teachers have been buying food and materials and dropping them off for families too, demonstrating a great deal of kindness. For their part, children have been instrumental in facilitating communication, translating for their parents when they talk to their teachers. We’re grateful for the contributions of each of our incredible teachers who are each doing their part to make the situation feel a little better each day. "
