(Mr. Wimsett at Mount Vernon ~ George Washington's Home)
Welcome to Mr. Wimsett's Webpage!
During the unexpected break from our normal schedule as a result of the coronavirus,
I will be checking my email during normal school ours (and at other times too). Feel
free to get in touch with me if you have a question. I will also begin posting new
learning activities to my teacher webpage. Use the tabs to the left to look at them.
When you complete the assignment, you can share them with me via Google Docs or
you scan (or snap a photo) and share the work with me via my school email.
I hope you guys are doing well and staying safe during this time.
I miss all of you!
