Greetings, Students and Families

We will start a weekly routine on Monday, 3/30/20
Weekly Outline for 3/30 - 4/2
Morning Messages -
Monday, March 30
Tuesday, March 31
Monday: A weekly outline and a pre-recorded “Morning Message” will be sent to you through Remind each Monday, and it will be posted on Google Classroom. On the outline you will see the daily activities for the week. On Mondays you will be asked to watch the 10 - 20 minute Morning Message, and then you should get started with the weekly lessons.
Tuesday - Thursday: On most of these days, you will also see a short (5 - 10 minutes) “Morning Message” to help you with your lessons. Send an email if you have any questions about your work. You will be asked to do your independent work on Google Classroom and Castle Learning.
Thursday “Extra Help”: If anyone would like to join in, we will use Google Meet to hold extra help, and you may choose the morning or the afternoon meeting. The links to join meeting will be sent through Google Classroom, because this makes it more secure. You must sign into Google Classroom to access the link, and this way I can easily see who everyone is when they join in.
Friday: All work should be posted on Google Classroom and Google Classroom by the end of the day. These assignments will be graded starting on Monday, however, so if you are not finished and need extra time, that would be fine.
To Complete Assignments
Written assignments should be completed on Google Classroom. As an option, you can hand write your responses, as long as you send me a photo of your work through email or Remind. However, Google Classroom would allow for better communication.
Grammar assignments will be completed on Castle Learning.
Thank you to all students and their families for acting as a team during this very challenging transition to Learning from Home. We look forward to getting back to class, and hope our resources will help everyone to feel successful and supported.
