Welcome Back to School Activities

August 17- August 21


I am so happy to have you in my class this year. The first few days of school will be atypical due to parent meeting and Chromebook distribution. All work for the first three days will be located in the student information packet that you will pick up on Monday. We will go LIVE on Thursday morning. Stay tuned to Dojo for more information. I look forward to working with you this year.

Today the students will begin working in Google Classroom. I have posted a schedule below and also in Google Classroom. We will begin our morning the same way each day. Students will go to the WES Smore to watch the announcements, check our class Smore for news and then go to Google Classroom to complete the morning check-in. I hope to quickly build a routine, working out any kinks along the way. Please remember that all of the programs that your child needs for the day can be accessed through Clever.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Way to go students! You did an amazing job yesterday. It was a little tricky navigating the different programs and you did GREAT! Let's work hard today and then enjoy the weekend.

Don't forget that the computer cases are in. You can come by any day after 1:15 and pick your case up.
