I don’t like asking for help, but our Teachers Pay Teachers fund generously donated by parents is running low. I purchase several items from this website each week whether it be Google slides, projects, worksheets, task cards, games, etc. Anything you can donate is appreciated and used with intention.


Computers: Please bring your computer to and from school each day. Please make sure it is charged.


Health: Please let me know if you or someone you know has been exposed to COVID or being tested for COVID! Please do not send them until you receive test results. Contact me or the nurse if you have questions!


Homework: Students have homework EVERY DAY. For reading, they need to read a book of their choice for 30 minutes. Set a timer!! Then, write a summary in their reading log. For math, they have four small problems to complete each day.


Folders: Green folders should come to and from school each day. This holds their reading & math homework, as well as any important papers or attestation forms.


Zoom Password: Going forward all students will be required to enter a password for zoom calls. The password is sloop2020.
