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 Thursdays between 2:30 PM amd 4:00 PM.
It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.
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
I will have office hours all quarter where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have between 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM Monday - Friday.
Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have questions!
