Good morning, everyone! I miss you all so much!

There isn't much certainty about what the rest of the school year holds for us- but I'm determined to make sure that you guys learn all the necessary concepts in order to make 7th grade an easy transition.

What I do know is that until at least April 15th, you guys will be learning remotely through online learning platforms. That date is subject to change.

So here is what I need you to do:

First of all, give your brothers, sisters, mom, dad, or whatever family you have at home with you, a great big hug. (Bonus: hug your pets too!) 

Next thing you need to do is create an account on Khan Academy. Now here are some important details:

If you are under 13, Khan Academy asks for a parent email. Please use your parent's email and ask that they approve your account. Onec approved, please use your real name. If you are uncomfortable using your full name online, you can use your first name and last initial (ie. Andrea G) or last name and first initial (ie. A Gattuso). Otherwise, it will be hard for me to distinguish who is turning in what... and that can get confusing with grading.

Periods 2,3,4,5: You can join my advanced section by clicking here.

Periods 1 and 6: You can join my regular section by clicking here.

Once your account is created, hang on tight. Online instruction will not begin until March 30th (I think) so I will be keeping you updated on what we will do next. 

If you have any questions at all, please email me at andrea.gattuso@marion.k12.fl.us

This is a new experience for all of us but I'm positive that we can get through it!

There is a new tab added to my site titled "Distance Learning Instructions"

In that tab, you'll find the same PDF that was given by Marion County Public Schools. It contains instructions for signing up on Khan Academy.

I love you all and hope to see you soon! Stay safe and healthy,

Ms. G
