Things to Remember

Please note that our Encore schedule has changed. We will now be following a new six day rotation. I will continue to post this daily on our Google Classroom and weekly on S'more.

5th Grade will now have a review Zoom from 2:00-2:30 every day. Please make sure that your student attends this Zoom as we review and prepare for the end of the year!

Wednesday 3/17- Art Zoom at 1:20.

STEM Day materials for Friday can be picked up at school.

Thursday 3/18- Media Zoom 1:20

Friday 3/19- Remote Learning Day for all. No Encore and no Zooms! STEM Day activities will be provided by WES and directions will be posted on GC.

It is important that students work EVERY DAY on assignments so they will be counted present in school. All assignments for this week are posted on Google Classroom. Remember to go through Clever to log on.

Please use the Zoom link shared on Clever, Class Dojo or Google Classroom. It is the same link for all Zooms calls. Please try to attend all Zoom sessions if possible. If you miss a Zoom I will post the link in Google Classroom to be viewed later./
