Briarwood Goes Virtual

Like the rest of the world, The Briarwood community had to learn how to maneuver in these
strange times, but teachers and staff hit the road running and students were utilizing online
learning from day one and are continuing their daily education.  Communication with students
and families is the key and everyone, every step of the way, has surpassed all expectations.
Way to go, Briarwood! 

"I just want to let you guys know how much we absolutely appreciate the fact that Briarwood has taken the time to create a plan and has kept the parents informed every step of the way."
~Current Family

"Teachers that ROCK!  Ed Finger, you are so awesome!  You always go the extra mile to teach your students (even if they aren't in your class!)"
~Current Family

"Overall it is amazing, organized, responsive, engaging, accountable and forgiving at the same time.  My other two children are in public school (one of the "best" districts in this city) and there really is no comparison."
~Current Family

"I used your schedule template and made lesson plans for my other 2 kids...Thanks for being organized and for the schedule - it helped!"
