    Week 4/5 Announcements:
    • Students continue optional instruction for this Week #2 of the district's Phase II of online learning.
    • Students are to obtain information about the optional course work through the emails that the district has sent out to all families or on my weblinks page.
    • Teachers continue to be available during office hours at the district's posted times throughout the week if students have email questions about the work, and Zoom meetings can be scheduled as needed to clarify directions.
    • Continuing for this week, student work will not be graded and will not be put in the grade book.  
    • Optional assignments in my google classroom are available to help reinforce learning.  
    • More information is forthcoming about the next Phase III learning from district and school emails.
    • Take care out there!
     
    Week 3/30 addition:
    Students may complete a google classroom assignment in conjunction with the districts coursework.  It is optional and is not for a grade.  However it is designed to have students continue to use their note taking skills and process the new information that they are learning.  I suggest that this be done prior to doing the quiz games.
     
    Week 3/30 Announcements:
    • Students begin optional instruction for 2 weeks during the district's Phase II of online learning.
