Dear Parents and Students,

Due to our recent school closure, all students in grades 6 - 8 were distributed a google school gmail account so we can continue with remote/distance learning.   **** Please note that I am currently using Google Classroom and Zoom Meetings for students in Grades 6-8 to further enrich our remote / distance learning.  Please make sure to check your gmail accounts daily. ***

Below is just an overview of what topics that I plan to cover during these next couple of weeks.  I will continue to email each student their lessons through Google Classroom,  and will update these assignments on this web page as well.  We are all trying to adjust to this challenging and difficult time with these online lessons, and together we will get through this.  We truly appreciate your ongoing support!
