Week of 03/16
Because of COVID-19, we will be doing distance learning. This means that your child will be learning at home. I will be providing daily lessons on Teams. Your children should have this app. On Teams I will be communicating with the students. They will be working on assignments, quizzes and watching PowerPoints. If they have any questions, I will answer them through Teams.
Where can I find my child’s daily/weekly assignments?
Well, the assignments can be found on the Teams App. Once your child clicks on my Social Studies class, there will be a tab which says “Home.” There is where I will be posting daily/weekly assignments.
Is there a deadline for the assignments?
Yes. Everyday there will be a 3pm deadline for all the assignments given out.
How about attendance?
Attendance will be counted for. Every day the students must sign in for attendance at 8:30 AM
