Week Two: Finding our Rhythm

Attendance and Engagement in synchronous classwork have been excellent. Our students are showing up and ready to learn. Let's keep this up, Timberwovles!


We continue to work through some of the "bugs" in the system, but overall, students are engaging in meaningful learning opportunities.

  • Have a designated area to complete your schoolwork
  • Keep your computer fully charged
  • Consider what's in your background when you are participating in a videoconference call
