TUTORING

No tutoring will be offered during lunches this week due to the Child Protection Unit and the Jekyll Island Field Trip.

ADJUSTED SCHEDULE

Our schedule has changed slightly due to the additional 30 minutes. The morning will remain the same. However, our afternoon specials have shifted. From 12:55-1:20, students will work on Moby Max (an online program), remediation, or enrichment activities provided by myself or Mrs. Schirmer. From 1:25-2:10, students will attend STEAM on Mondays, French on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Writer's Workshop on Thursdays and Fridays. From 2:15-3:00, students will attend specials.

GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Students have begun using Google Classroom more frequently to post assignments. Hard copies of these assignments will not go home. Instead, you can access your child's work and score on Google Classroom through MyBackpack. If you or your child have difficulty getting on at home, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
