• Distance Learning Information 

    HELLO ALL!!!

    As we move into uncharted territory, I am working hard to compile several resources for you to use. For the next couple of weeks, we will be operating in a virtual format. Google classroom is going to be the hub of my instruction. It is imperative that you turn your assignments in, because these are the only grades you will receive until we return to school.

    Beginning next week on Monday (April 6th), each Monday, you will have a google form to fill out for attendance purposes. It is a simple click on question and you have to do it once a week.

    Each week you will have a new table of contests under classwork in the Distant Learning topic. You are to do each activity per day. At the end of the week, Friday’s google form will post at 9 am as a wrap up quiz on the content covered each day that week, and you are to answer the quiz for a grade.

    The best way to reach me during this time is via email: Denisa.Bethea@marion.k12.fl.us.

    Active office hours are from 8:00 – 9:00 and 15:00- 16:00. If you have issues or important problems to clarify, you can call/text @ Google Voice 3524622382 during active office hours. Please be brief and specify full name, period, and reason of calling. I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

    I hope you are all doing well in these difficult times, and if you need anything at all, please email me. Thank you and I miss you ALL !!!
