I hope this week finds everyone healthy and safe. We are still working on accountability, responsibility, and managing our time using Zoom. Please note that all students should be sitting at a desk or table with their necessary books, paper, and pencils/pens. Students need to try and get to class on time as classes will be locked within 10 minutes of our starting time this week.

You can view your child’s grades on Powerschool. I am not taking work past due right now. Going forward I am giving everyone a 2 day grace period, everyone should be able to get the required assignments in within that time period. I cannot use the Remind app for posting assignments as it only lets me post 100 characters. I post on your child’s Google classroom in the stream a Recap of the morning and a Recap of the afternoon session. In that stream lists what your child is responsible for in getting done. Under classwork you can see if your child completed the assignments and turned them in. I also am returning work back to students on Google classroom. There also is work that your child is responsible for on IXL and Spelling City. Your child should be working on assignments for at least an hour – to two hours a day. Everyone should also be reading a good book. 

The Time Capsule that we are working on is something I think kids will appreciate down the road. I would love to see the kids use a shoebox and fill it with our momentoes that we are talking about in class. Fill the box, throw it in a closet, forget about it, and way down the road in the future open it up. I am sure everyone will be surprised and happy to see what they put in there for the pandemic. One of the items is a letter that a parent writes to their child. I told the kids not to read it now, but to put it in a sealed envelope and add it to the time capsule.  We are experiencing history in the making and it is effecting all of us. 

Social Studies: Watch.  5A you can join my Google classroom by entering the code tfpaa2r -this will be for my Social Studies assignments only. My class is under a different classroom. . 

Great time to practice some real Genius Hour! Would be great if you found a topic that you would love to learn something new about. Check it out, learn all you can about it, make something to share with the class —maybe a poster, powerpoint, or just a little lecture about what you learned. I know that each and everyone of you has the power to learn something wonderful to share with us. Genius Hour at home CAN be AMAZING!! Bring it to school when we get back to share with your peers.

Keep on checking out the eagle cam at Duke Farms. Those eagles are amazing! They get to continue on with no threat of the virus—lucky them.
