    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
    I am incredibly excited to welcome students back to school, albeit virtually, and be part of their academic success. Please be patient while we work through all of the challenges so that families, students, and staff remain safe during this stressful time. Thank you to all the parents that were able to join the 7a team for our Meet the Teacher Zoom meeting. If you happened to miss it, there is a copy of the Power Point attached below. 
    In an effort to communicate directly to parents and students, this is the location for classroom communication for the first couple of weeks
    Please note that your child will need to join their peers in period specific, ELA classes via ZOOM conference. As of August 23rd, those codes will be back in SYNERGY. Students will now have specific codes for each class. Please ask your child to be on-time or they will miss instruction.
    For homework, students are given that information to complete and submit through Google Classroom. Additionally, parents can find the homework assignments on this site under the "homework" tab. 
    The new school year has already been extremely stressful for everyone in our community and I ask for your continued patience as we work through all the various kinks that are bound to occur. Rest assured, your child's education, along with his or her emotional well-being, drives each and every decision. To support these goals, it is imperative to build a strong parent/guardian partnership. We are in this together. 
    Thank you for your time and patience. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at mwicks@kyrene.org
