Ms. Rickey's ELA and Social Studies 4th & 5th

  • Welcome to East Marion distance learning!  Glad to have you all back in virtual space. 


    All 5th graders must check in daily before 10:00 am on Google Classroom's Question of the Day.  If you cannot access that then contact me via email (Click here to email Ms. Rickey) to tell me you are present. 


    Assignments and lessons, for 4th and 5th grade, will be posted on Google Classroom (on the student portal).  Please check daily.  Stay tuned for daily assignments, programs, and class codes to access your assignments.

    I will be available for immediate communication and questions from 9:00-10:00 am and 1:00-2:00 pm.  However, parents may email me at anytime with comments, questions, or concerns.  The school day is from 7:40 am to 2:00 pm.  Please be aware that contacting me outside of the school hours may mean that you hear from me the next school day.  My Class Dojo is up and running so that I can also communicate through that avenue, as well.  We are going to have a great time learning together.

    Should you need technology help, the District has set up a help line @ 352.867.2100.  Help is available Monday through Friday from 7:30 am - 4:30 pm.


    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.
