Mr. Joseph St. John

 Welcome Back!

I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you! Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful.

When we have live instructional sessions or small group meetings, they will be on Fridays and we will meet on Google Meet at 3:00pm.  If this is a conflict, please let me know ASAP and I will adjust the times.  I have more flexibility then some of the other CTE teachers. 

It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS Gmail account and our Google Classroom at least once per day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.  Also, check Remind!!

 If you are not sure how to join or use Google Classroom or just need a quick refresher, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials

Parents and Students, I will have office hours all quarter where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have.   My office hours are 24/7.  If you have any questions, I check my emails regularly and I will answer ASAP!

I want the 4th quarter to be special.  I want us to learn and I want us to have a quality nine weeks.  Let’s make the most of a difficult situation.  Let’s stand strong and learn and grow. 

 Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have questions or not sure what to do.
