As per the schedule that Mr. Phythian sent out - I will be sending out activities for both math and language arts that are optional.  Please keep in mind that I do not want anyone to feel that they have to complete all assignments - pick and choose what you want to do.  All assignments are meant as a refresher and will not be graded.  Math instruction is suggested to be done from 8:30-10:00 on Monday morning - I will be available to during office hours to telework with students on Tuesday from 12:00-1:30.  Language arts instruction is scheduled for Wednesday from 8:30-10:00 and my office hours will be from 12:00-1:30 on Monday.  Of course - these are only guidelines and students should work on things as they please.  I am also available any other time during the school day to work with students.  I would like to set up a weekly Zoom so that I can check in with both my math and language arts students - so hopefully if there is interest I can set that up.  I miss you all!!!!  Please click under language arts or math for suggested assignments.

All classes should have access to IXL for both math and language arts - if anyone has any issues do not hesitate to contact me.  Also, I will be posting movies from Brainpop - please join my classes using the log in information that I emailed you!   


We will be resuming with previously scheduled special education meetings.  Your child's case manager (in many cases me) will be contacting you to schedule any IEP meeting that needs to be completed.  Please look for invitations via email and please check you voicemail messages.
