Dear 8th Grade Students and Families,

Please take a few minutes to visit the PWCS bulletin for updates on all information about the current status of our schools.

All classwork assigned before our break is now due April 24, 2020. There is still time to turn in the missing assignments to get rid of the NHIs in the grade book! Everything you need is under "Files and Documents" here and also under "Class Files" in the Office365 classroom notebook. I will have no new assignments for you.

If you have not done so already, make sure to visit our classroom notebook. I have been posting daily updates in your Office365 OneNote notebook since Monday, March 23rd. There will be a daily calendar along with some review activities. You can also access these activities under "Useful Links" here. These are all OPTIONAL.

Remember that you can always contact me via e-mail at any time for any reasons (hwangsj@pwcs.edu).

Best,
Ms. Hwang
