Updates & Reminders

Webcam Safety Course:


We will be reviewing the Wilkes County Schools Webcam Safety course together this week. Once we have completed the course, students will take a quiz where they must receive at least 80% on this course to receive credit. Then, I will send home a form so that webcams can be enabled. Let me know if you have any questions about this process!




-Everything students need for the week will be posted to Google Classroom!


-If you missed a Zoom call, please watch the recorded video, complete the assignment, and turn them BOTH in on Google Classroom in order to get credit

Zoom Link

Students can get to our Zoom sessions in a couple different ways.


1. They can go to Clever. Click on R.Baker's Page with my picture. Then click the Zoom icon.

2. They can click the link on Google Classroom.

What To Expect

Your student is expected to be active and engaged with their school work from 8:15am - 1:15pm. We will have a daily morning check-in and this will count as their attendance as well as Zoom engagement, and assignment completion. It is important to keep your student on a schedule as we transition throughout each phase of virtual and in-person learning.

What will the schedule look like?

How do I find my assignments? Google Classroom!!

Google Classroom is a HUGE part of our learning process. It is important that you get your student's WCSmail.org account joined in our classroom. Our join code is: eiaku4q


When your student gets joined, I will link your email to your student's account and you will get weekly emails about your student's progress, grades, and missing assignments. This is a great way for us to stay connected about grades.


Your student's daily assignments will become live on Google Classroom every morning at 8:00am.

Office Hours

We will be working synchronously (together as a class) and asynchronously (separate as individuals) between the hours of 8:15-1:15. If you reach out to me during those times, I will do my best to respond ASAP. I have scheduled Office Hours between 1:15-2:45 so I will return all contact during this time! If you are not able to talk during that time; no worries! We will make it work!

I'm here to help!

Please reach out to me if you need assistance regarding any assignments, academic needs, or help in general! The best time to contact me is during my office hours from 1:15pm - 2:45pm. I will do my best to get back with you ASAP. Thank you for being flexible and understanding!
