Dr. Fitzpatrick's Class
    Welcome to ESL at Osage Elementary School. 
    Remote Learning From Home for ESL 
    • All ESL students were sent home with a Remote Learning for ESL folder on Friday, March 13, 2020. Students are asked to complete one page from the folder per day that we are out of school. Once the folder is completed and if we are still not in school, students can choose one of the activities below per day to complete. Students and their parents may contact me between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM, Monday through Friday, using Google Classroom or my district email: fitzpatrick@voorhees.k12.nj.us.
