Log in for the websites we will be using during the school year 2020-2021

 Good Evening,

My sincere apologies as I was overwhelmed with not having work that both remote and in class students could do, given limited availability to books or worksheets. Below you will find a link to access some of the websites we will be using in and out of class.

Each child has a gmail account created by the school, to log into gmai.com use the following format, your child's first and last name in all lowercase letters no spaces in between for example. Jane Doe is the child, the format would be janedoe@olqmnyc.org 

Gmail passwords for all the students will be: olqmkinder123

These are the following links to access your child's username and passwords

Please click here to access zearn.org info


Please click here to access Ready Gen for ELA 


If you are still having trouble accessing your child's email account please email me privately at msocasio@olqmnyc.org

Week of 6/15-5/19

Reminders
As this week unfolds we get ready to end classes, we hope to see you back in school in September as you move up to first grade. We will have a virtual kindergarten graduation ceremony. The virtual graduation will be held on Thursday June 18, 2020 at 1:30 pm please be on time. However if you have an outstanding tuition balance your child may be excluded from the virtual ceremony and I will not be able to discuss the end of year progress for your child during parent teacher conferences that will be held Friday June 19 from 10am to 12:15pm and then Monday June 22 from 2:00pm to 4:15pm.
I would like the students if possible to create a graduation cap, there will be a link posted below, I would like to keep it as true to the normal graduation ceremony where the girls wear red caps and the boys wear blue caps. Children should be dressed in proper attire please no pajamas on this day, we want to try and make this as special and memorable given the situation.
