They will be provided for you get a better understanding of the materials. This will include things like powerpoints, youtube videos, and links to places like Khan Academy and Edpuzzle.

I want to share some of what is going on at school. Today, was the teachers first day back at school. We finalized grades for the 3rd quarter and began discussions with our grade/subject teachers (Mr. Cuebas, Ms. Maguire, and Mrs. Lindstrom) about what school was "distant learning" was going to look like.
We are faced with many uncertainties and challenges during this time as teachers, students, and families. we have been given guidelines by the county regarding distant learning. Please know that I will not try to overload you with assignments. I know that many of you will be sharing on-line resources with your family and will not have access to computer time for long chunks of time. On the other hand, some of you may have your own computers and not have to share with other members of your family.
Here is my plan for my class for the forseeable future. Lists of ALL your assignments will be posted in two places: on the class website calendar and in Google Classroom. You will have to access these sites through your student portal. Certain assignments will be MANDATORY (you have to do them!). These assignments will be graded and entered into Skyward as your 4th quarter grades. These are the bare minimal that you have to do. Other assignments will be posted as ENRICHMENT exercises. These will include videos, my famous powerpoints, edpuzzle and quizzizz among other things that I am just now learing about. Enrichment exercises are optional but may add to greater understanding of the mandatory assignments i mentioned earlier.
DISTANT LEARNING WILL BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1. Please make sure you have signed up for google classrooms before Wednesday. The class code for regular classes (period 1,2,3,and 6) is 224yfkc. The class code for advanced classes (periods 4 and 5) is vydwmns
As I write this on Thursday, March 26th, I have no idea what the rest of the year has in store for us. Here is what I do know. Teachers are reporting to work on Monday, March 30. I do know that students may not return to school until April 16 AT THE EARLIEST. Beginning on Tuesday, March 31, your teachers will be giving you assignments electronically which you will be expected to complete at home and return to your teachers electronically, Your teachers will grade and record these assignment amd they WILL COUNT towards your 4th quarter grade. ALL FSA tests have been cancelled for the year. I am not sure, at this time, if final exams for non-FSA subjects like US History will be given this year.
I understand that this has been a very stressful time for everyone, Going forward, I will try to give you meaningful assignments so that you can learn the remaining material that we need to cover. I do not expect them to be extremely difficult or time consuming because i understand that many of you will be sharing computers with the rest of your family. If you want additional work because you are bored or just want to learn more, please contact me.
Please check back here daily for assignments. We will get through this together...BE STRONG!
