    WELCOME. SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT IF YOU ARE VISITING BECAUSE OF THE SCHOOL CLOSURE.
     
    Office Hours:  I will respond to emails within 24 hours, Monday thru Friday. Phone calls or Zoom meetings can be arranged.
     
    Please have your student check their Google Classroom for weekly assignments.  

    I hope everyone is safe and well during this time. I know this is a stressful time for all of us. I realize everyone’s priority is to take care of their family. I don’t want you to worry about your student falling behind. We will all work together to figure out a plan for your student to be successful in their academic future. As far as having your student doing some math at home, trust your own instincts. You know your child and situation the best.

    If you are looking for activities to keep your student’s mind active, I suggest:

    • Play games: card games, board games, puzzles, sudoku, legos, any games with strategy, etc.
    • Get outside. 
    • Cooking
    • Talk to them about making a budget, balancing a checkbook, taxes, etc.
    • They can go on iReady and complete some lessons and take the quizzes. I recommend 2-3 times a week for 45 minutes at a time. 
    • Review any past work in their math workbooks, read the summaries and finish any incomplete work.
    • The district has added websites for students to access through the district webpage.

    I will check my email daily, so feel free to contact me.  

    I will also be adding a few activities, riddles, etc. on my Google Classroom for enjoyment and entertainment only. These are OPTIONAL.

    Best Wishes and I already miss everyone.
