Welcome to Team 506 with Mrs. Raymond!
Click here for a fun video from the 1st Grade Team:
My name is Jennifer Raymond. I have taught many grade levels, but first grade is my absolute favorite. I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. It may be a brand new learning environment, but the first grade teachers have been working hard through the summer to come up with a plan that we think will be the easiest for students and parents. We are all very excited to begin this new adventure together. I want you to know, that as a parent of school-aged, distance learning children myself, I understand the need for flexibility. If there are any complications or concerns, please let me know and I will do my very best to support you in any way that I can.
Below, you will find some important information:

Our primary lessons will be delivered through Seesaw. Each day, your child will receive the daily lessons and assignments, as well as announcements. Seesaw is accessible through laptops and phones and tablets via the app. There is also a family version of the app you can download from the App Store called Seesaw Families. The easiest way your child can access Seesaw through My Locker. For the best experience, bookmark app.seesaw.me on your computer. Then, download the right version of the Seesaw app for your device and your students' devices for access anywhere.
We will be using Teams for our live, face to face interactions. Your child can best access Teams through My Locker. When we are together, we will be spending a lot of time getting to know eachother and building a community within our class. I know that establishing that bond will be much more difficult when we are only meeting through a screen, so I want to put a lot of effort into getting to know eachother and giving the children the opportunity to get to know eachother as well.

The district's new communication platform is the program Remind. This can be downloaded in the App Store. Although it is likely that the primary communication you will receive from me will be through Seesaw, it is very important that you also download the Remind App to receive important school and district information. Specifics about how to sign onto Remind should be found on the AUSD website.

Please click the below links for our tentative daily schedules. Please note, that these are tentative schedules and may change.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, via email: JenniferRaymond@antiochschools.net for now, and then the other communication platforms once those get established. Remember, I will be here to support you in any way that I can. I know this is a challenging time for all, and I will try and work with you.
Virtual Office Hours are held from 8:00-9:00 AM Monday, and 2:00-2:45 PM Tuesday through Friday.
Remember: We are a TEAM!
