Welcome to Kindergarten!
Hey there! Welcome to our class. I say our class because we are a family in here. We work together and when our students walk into my classroom door, they are my children for that day. We will laugh together, cry together, have fun and share together. I expect the same manners that I would expect from my own children and they know that. We don't only teach curriculum in our classroom, but we build relationships. I always start the day with a new start and I believe in second chances. Together we will make things work and be flexible. Let's do this Jones families!
If you need help with anything technology based, we have been given a phone number for you to call. The hours of operation are 7:30am-4:30pm Monday thru Friday. The “MCPS Service Desk” number is 352-867-2100 (tech support only…. not curriculum- that should be filtered through school level).
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.
My Distant Learning office hours are from 10:00-11:00am and from 2:00-3:00pm every day. This will be a time that I am available to assist you with any help that you need.
Below you will find the Google Classroom codes to join your child's special area classes. They are still expected to participate and submit assignments in Google Classroom just like they would do for me.
