Mrs. Tonya Long, 3rd Grade Teacher
Good morning and welcome to Week 2 of Online Learning. I thought you guys did a great job of getting on and doing your work last week! Keep up the great work this week! Remember if you have not already joined me on Google Classroom please do - that is a great way for us to communicate as a class and one on one with me :) I miss all of you so much, saying good morning as I take attendance, not having the smart board cooperate with me while I'm teaching math, giving out Skittles, and just seeing your smiles and getting hugs and hearing your voices. I hope you and your family are safe. Please make sure you are behaving for your parents and being extra patient with your brothers and sisters, remember we are all in this together!
I will still be responsible for attendance. In order for me to do this I will post a question everyday in Google Classroom. Please respond to that question, and I will know that you are logged on and working. If I do not see that you have logged on for 3 consecutive days then I am asked to contact a school administrator who will then follow up with you directly.
I will also be responsible for taking grades for the items that I am assigning to you digitally. I will not be taking a grade on every assignment, and I most likely will not directly inform you what assignments I am taking a grade on because I would like for you to do your best on ALL of the assignments I am giving you. There will be times where I contact you individually to redo an assignment or offer you assistance, but that is what my hours are for too - you can call, email, talk to me on Google Classroom, or DOJO message me! So please if you are in the middle of a lesson or need help just let me know. I said we are in this together and I meant it!
Make sure to check Mrs. Abbott, Mr. McAllister and Coach Sulzener's websites as well. Those are your students special area teachers and they will be conducting lessons and having assignments too! They should be lots of fun!
If you need to reach me at any time please call me at 671-6360 ext. 52835, email me at Tonya.Long@marion.k12.fl.us, or if you are on Class DOJO you may privately message me there. My hours that I will be available each day are 10:30 - 11:30 am and then again at 1 - 2 pm. If you contact me during these hours I will reply to you right away as long as I am not helping another parent or student. If for some reason I do not respond I will do so within 24 hours.
