Welcome to Ms. Hussa and Gochal's Class!

    We are so excited to meet all of you next week on Tuesday!  We will see Group 2 (Group B) in person.  Group 1 (Group A) students that will not be present in school on the 8th will need to join our Google Meet at 2:20.  The link will be posted in the Google Classroom. 


    We are going to have an amazing year together!


    On Friday, you will be able to go into the Google Classroom app & see our Google Classroom page or click on the link in the email that I sent you.  You can then join it!  Email us if you are having difficulty joining our Google Classroom.

    Important Information!

    • Please make sure to complete the daily health screening for your child each day before they come to school for their in-person school day.
    • Please have your child bring their chromebooks back and forth to school each day fully charged.  
    • Please send your child in with earbuds or headphones labled with their name in a plastic bag.  We will provide all other individual supplies for your child.
    • During our morning routine, I will take a count for anyone buying lunch. We strongly encourage you to add money to your child's lunch account rather than carrying cash.
