Welcome to 6th Grade
Welcome! I am so excited to meet you whether it be face to face or online...Although I do not get to meet you and your parents like we normally do on Meet the Teacher night, you will find a short video getting to know a little bit about me! I can't wait to get to know a little bit about you too!
We will be using Microsoft teams as our online learning platform for MCPSonline. Please follow the steps below to get logged in and join your classes on Monday.
To access Teams, you will need to log into your MCPS Desktop. From there, click on the following: EMAIL & ONEDRIVE (the icon displays Office 365) > Click on the purple Microsoft Teams App (you may have to log in with your email and password before this step) > Once Teams is open*, click on Teams on the left side bar and then click on your Class Team.
*You can work on the web app on any computer, or you can download the Windows app for quicker access. If you download the Windows app, you can use Teams immediately from your computer instead of logging into your MCPS Desktop each time. Instead, you would open Teams from your computer and use your email to log into Teams.
Contact Information: I can be reached best by email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Students and parents , please know that you may contact ESE support facilitators with questions and help with any assignment. They are Mr. Robinson at Robinson.Dennis@marion.k12.fl.us, and Ms. Brown at Brown.Greta@marion.k12.fl.us. Also, note that accommodations for most students are not unique. Extra time, having directions clarified, verbal encouragement, small group for testing, etc. should be possible in the home setting also. Please contact your teacher for clarifications. You will also be contacted by an ESE teacher to implement a Distance Learning Plan and Log developed by Marion County that will also assist your student with additional support through ESE teachers.
