Here are some clarifications about student work and Google Meet expectations:

    -Each day the students work from home, they will have two (2) Google Meets. One with the Special Area teacher of the day at 1:45-2:15 and then again at 2:20- about 3:10 for the Classroom subject areas. 

    -Students should be as prompt as possible because we are on a tight schedule.

    -For our Math students, we would like the students to complete the math assignment before the Classroom Meet so we may go over the work and see who needs extra support.

    -If you need to leave the Meet early, please email us before the Meet to let us know, except for other Elms services.

    -According to the district, if you are NOT present for a scheduled Google Meet, you are to be marked absent. Please email us with any technical issues. 

    -Monday-Thursday students that are In-Person will have homework assigned for that day when they are home (like the usual school routine). NOTE: Students should follow the HW rules according to their Math and Literacy teacher.

    Remember, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to a successful year!

  • Character Education

    • Having a strong sense of character is extremely important.

      1. Caring
      2. Citizenship
      3. Fairness
      4. Respect
      5. Responsibility
      6. Trustworthiness
