Happy Auspicious April!
Happy Marvelous May, Friends! :)
Spring is in the air! :) We have been reviewing standards getting ready for the FSA testing that was scheduled, HOWEVER, ALL FSA TESTING IS CANCELLED due to us being out of school due to the Coronavirus. I pray that each student and family is safe, happy, and healthy. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU GUYS! XOXO
I miss each one of you students, especially your smiles and questions! :) It is my hope that each of you are keeping your brains sharp!
SPECIALS SCHEDULE: Please make sure your child checks his/ her schedule each week. It is important that students complete their Specials work each week, take a photo of his/ her work, and send it to the Specials teacher of the week. PLEASE peruse each teacher's website to know what is expected of your child. Please note the Specials schedule below. Thank you!
ATTENDANCE HAS TO BE TAKEN EVERY DAY! The way that my classes will take attendance will be through my Google Classroom. There will be a Google Form on the Announcement page for attendance every day. IMPORTANT INFO: Students are required to check in there before 12:00PM every day and sign in so that I can do attendance for Marion County. If a student does not do attendance/ check-in to Google Classroom daily, they will be marked down as absent.
Please check my teacher website, our ClassDojo, and Google Classroom on a daily basis. My teacher website will be the primary 'landing place' for assignments which will link to our Google Classroom, and ClassDojo will be our primary communication platform.
At any time, please Dojo message me with any questions (or comments) that you might have. ClassDojo is for communication as it has been all year. I am here for you, and we will get through all of this. Please let me know how I can help you.
IMPORTANT!: I will be available for 'Office Hours', Monday- Friday, 9:00-10:00 (AM) and 2:00-3:00 (PM). At this time (subject to change), my plan is to do a Zoom class for both of those time periods. Don't worry! We will figure this all out together! :)
During a Zoom class, we will be able to see one another and hear one another. That would is so cool! I miss you guys! ZOOM LINKS will be posted right here on my Teacher Webpage as well (LOOK BELOW UNDER THE 'ZOOM' SECTION!). Click the link (and give the ID#/ which is posted as well), and it will take you to the video class. We'll figure it out. :)
If any home does not have a computer, please CALL OAKCREST FRONT OFFICE TO SET AN APPOINTMENT to receive ChromeBooks, and they will address it on a 'case-by-case basis' per the District. We WILL get through this!
Thank you for all that you do for your children and for our school. YOU are appreciated! It is a pleasure being your child's teacher. :) Please remember to have your child to read daily for at least 20 minutes. If you ever have any questions or comments, please contact me via Dojo, email, notes to school, or a phone call. Remember, messaging through ClassDojo is primary, however, you may call me at my PHONE NUMBER @ 352-462-2904 too. My Office Hours are: (AM) 9:00-10:00 and (PM) 2:00-3:00PM., and that is also when you can participate in our ZOOM meetings . I am available to you to help in any way that I can. I welcome them. Thank you so much!
