    As we begin the third marking, there are some reminders that I would like to review.  Each marking period students are asked to read a novel, complete a journal assignment, and a project.  Since our writing unit will be research simulation tasks, our journal and project will also reflect this task.  All directions are posted in our Google Classroom 


    All students will be reading the same novel, Freedom Summer: The 1964 Struggle for Civil Rights in Mississippi by Susan Goldman Rubin 

    Journal - Due April 13:

    1. There will be assessment checkpoints throughout the marking period

    2.  Part 1: Vocabulary - Write the definition for at least TEN words that you do not know (3 points each = 30).

    3.  Part 2: Facts - Write ONE fact after reading each chapter. The facts must be written using complete sentences. (4 points each = 70)

    Project - PowerPoint Due April 13:

    Directions will be posted after the Holocaust Case Study Projects are completed


    Additionally, students need to work on literacy daily.  Every day assignments are posted in our Google Classroom.

    My goal is to provide support and encouragement for each of you on your journey to improve the world.  Do not hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to help during the process.  Every school year is a new beginning.  Let's make this one extra wonderful.  Have a GREAT start to the school year, and I am so glad you are here.

    Dear parent/guardian,

    We are pleased to be able to use technology (Google Hangouts Meet) to stay connected during the Remote Learning portion of the day.  Please remember that all the Acceptable Use for Technology expectations you signed remain in place, as do our Code of Conduct expectations.  We will be able to continue to communicate as long as everyone remembers these expectations.  Google Meets is integrated into Google Classroom.

    During our meets, I will simply catch up with the students and discuss what they have been completing academically.  You are welcome to be present during the Meet. Students are reminded to keep the microphone muted during discussion times unless asked to unmute and participate.  Parents are also invited to join our Google Classroom.  As long as you have a Google email address, it will be east to join.

    Google Meets will continue throughout the remainder of remote teaching.  Our daily scheduled time is 1:25-1:45.  Attendance will be taken and participation is mandatory.  Students are asked to show their faces...not use an icon.
