    Hello parents and guardians,

         I wanted to give you some important information for tomorrows roll out of distance learning. First, I will be using Google Classroom to complete our work. Your child will be able to comment on the home screen and chat with the class. I also made packets for each student that can be picked up at Maplewood if you choose to have them instead, but please know that if you use the paper packets, I will need you to send me a picture of the completed assignment via dojo or my email address. All of the assignments are the same, just in a different form. Starting tomorrow, April 1st, I will be taking attendance, either by seeing progress made in Google Classroom or by seeing pictures of their completed work. Lastly, I will be using the zoom app to host live lessons and to give the children a chance to see each other. These meetings are optional, and I will try to schedule them at different times to accommodate everyone's schedule. I know they miss their friends and their daily routine, and I want to have as much communication with each of them as possible. If you haven't so already, please download the zoom app and set up an account on this website https://zoom.us/download. I know this is a lot of information, but this will be posted on Miss. Panzica's website to refer back to. As always, please don't hesitate to contact me for anything. 

    I will post assignments every Monday, and they will be due on Sunday at 12.59 pm. If using the packets, I will need the pictures by each Sunday at 12.59 pm.
