• Welcome to Mrs. Tolar's ESL Page!

    It is almost time for summer! I'm sure you are excited for a break, but summer is also an important time to make sure your child doesn't lose what they learned this year!! This year, we have some exciting news here at Biglerville Elementary: we have partnered with the Ready Rosie program to bring you the Summer Soar Program! Please see the Ready Rosie link to the left to get started with this fun summer program that will help students to be prepared for next year.  Also, don't forget to particpate in our Biglerville Elementary Summer Reading Program to earn some fun prizes this fall!! Check for more information about this in your child's report card!

    **COVID-19 Update: Beginning April 1st, we will be doing Online Learning!  While this is scary for students, teachers, and parents, we are all in this together!! I am here to help! If you have any questions or concerns please email me.  I will be in touch through Class Dojo (I have invited all students/parents, so please check your home email or your class Dojo Messages to connect with me!) because there is an option for parents to have my messages translated if needed.  We will also be using Google Classroom, the ConnectEd website, and Zoom.  Please see the "Online Platforms" page to the left for directions for all of these.  I will be available to help my students with their classroom assignments and answer your questions Monday-Friday from 8:00-11:00AM and 1:00-3:00PM, as well as other times as needed.  I will also check my mesages on the weekend, but may not be able to reply immediately.  Please send me a message at any time on Class Dojo or email if you need me!

    I am so excited to have your child in my class this year!   My job is to help them learn English through listening, speaking, reading, and writing. When your student comes to me, they are not missing instruction in their classroom. I am also lucky to have some wonderful co-teachers who welcome me into their classrooms so that I can work with your student right in their regular classroom at other times throughout the day!

    Please feel free to contact me at any time!  My email address is m.tolar@upperadams.org  Spanish is fine!  If I can't read it (I do know a little Spanish and am trying to learn more!!), I will use Google Translate :)
