Weekly Newsletter

Mrs. Leonard's Class

Message from Mrs. Leonard

Hello! I am Mrs. Leonard and I am so glad that you are in my class this year! Several of our activities this week are designed to help me get to know you better. It is important that you work EVERY DAY on your assignments so that you will be counted present in school. All assignments for Monday 8/17 through Wednesday 8/19 are linked on this newsletter. After Thursday 8/19 our assignments will be posted, submitted and graded on our Google Classroom. Daily instruction will occur through face to face Zoom sessions and independent work sessions. After this week our weekly S'more newsletter will be used to share other important information.
