Weekly Newsletter 8/31-9/4

Mrs. Leonard's Class

Message from Mrs. Leonard

Welcome to the third week of school! Here are a few important reminders as we begin the week.


This week at school we are working to get students webcams turned on. Copies of the webcam agreement can be found online and printed at home, or picked up at school in the lunch line. Students will also be asked to take a quiz on webcam safety. We will be learning more about this in our last Zoom on Monday. Webcams cannot be turned on until the webcam agreement is returned and the quiz has been completed. Please see the #WErise S'more on our school website for more information!


It is important that students work EVERY DAY on assignments so they will be counted present in school. All assignments for this week are posted on Google Classroom. Remember to go through Clever to log on.


Zoom calls are available from 9:15-9:45, 10:45-11:15 and 12:15-12:45. Please use the link shared on Clever, Class Dojo or Google Classroom. It is the same link for all Zooms calls. Please try to attend all Zoom sessions if possible. If you miss a Zoom I will post the link in Google Classroom to be viewed later.

This week I can...

ELA: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text


Math: Represent and interpret data using line plots
