WHERE TO FIND WEEKLY ASSIGNMENTS?
Well, please join me in song when I sing the same ole tune... "It's on my assignment calendar".
So, no change with daily instructions and where they are posted for my students. Students are to click on their appropriate class each day for instructions for assignments given. If it requires additional materials the uploaded documents will always be viewable and accessible to print. I am available if further explanation is needed and/or if the student is experiencing difficulty due to technology difficulties.
Any assignments that require access to Health Center 21 online curriculum please know: I have a direct link to the website we use in class available on the left task bar. If for any reason a student forgot their username &/or password--please contact me ASAP (via Remind or email) & I can assist them so they can get started with their assignments.
