Dear Parents or Caregiver,

Our school has a subscription to BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr., award-winning educational websites we trust because they deliver reliable content relating to topics I’m teaching your children. As part of that subscription, your family also has access!  

Make the most of the Presidents Day break by exploring BrainPOP and/or BrainPOP Jr. with your child. Got kids in grades 3+? Watch the BrainPOP movie on presidential power and play a president sorting game. For younger kids in grades K-3, watch the BrainPOP Jr. movie about George Washington and play a related sequencing game.
