Subject: 3rd Quarter Grades
This email has information for you related to your 3rd Quarter grades. The 3rd Quarter ended on Friday, March 13. You do have the opportunity to improve your 3rd Quarter grade if you want to. If you wish to improve your grade, you will need to complete the assignment that I have outlined for you in our Google Classroom. It will be posted there by 5:00 this evening. This assignment will need to be returned to me by Wednesday, April 8, 2020. Instructions for submitting your assignment will be included with the activity.
*Please email me to tell me that you are going to turn-in the required assignment to improve your 3rd quarter grade.*
If you are happy with your 3rd Quarter grade, then you do not need to do anything else at this point.
3rd Quarter report cards will be issued on April 17th. The 4th Quarter will start on Wednesday, April 15 and more information will be coming to you soon about assignments and expectations.
Also, please be aware that I will not be holding formal Office hours this week, but I will be available via email all week to help you or answer questions.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Google Classroom Codes-in case you missed them:
I'm a Poquoson native who married a "Bull Islander" on Valentine's Day 33 years ago. I've taught for over 18 years since graduating from CNU and this is my eleventh year in Poquoson. I was honored to be recognized as the 2017- 2018 PMS teacher of the year as well as the district teacher of the year for the city of Poquoson!
Thanks to my husband's military career in the Air Force, we've lived in a variety of places including Germany, Massachusetts, and Utah. I've enjoyed a variety of teaching experiences everywhere we were stationed.
During this time, our family expanded with the birth of our two sons- Jesse and Brett. Jesse is a graduate of Longwood University where he majored in Education. He's currently working on his masters degree in administration. He teaches math and science to 5th grade students in Madison, Va.
Brett graduated from Dakota State University (South Dakota) with degrees in Video Game Design and Computer Science. He's now employed by InCadence and works as a Jr. Computer Programmer.
I'm excited to be teaching 6th grade US History again this year! I look forward to working with you and building a successful partnership with your family. It's up to all of us to ensure that a very positive learning experience exists for everyone!
