To my amazing students and parents,

Welcome to the Main Hub of our Virtual Classroom!

The first big change you should notice is our weekly schedule, as seen above.

Tuesdays are Instructional days, every Tuesday morning a new assignment will be posted here under the folder: Virtual Classroom Assignments, as well as on TEAMS as an assignment. 

Thursdays are Office Hour days, every Wednesday evening I will email out a reminder about our Zoom link, which was sent as a calendar invite. We will use the same link every week. I will also repost the link in TEAMS. I will go live at noon and be available to chat until 1:30pm. This time will be used for review activities, as well as community building activities. We will also answer any questions that may come up from that week's assignment. 

Please remember these assignments are optional. Students will receive meaningful feedback from me on anything they turn in. 

Also, o
ne of the most important activities you should continue is to write. Write about this historic time in your life. Use a notebook to record daily your feelings, activities, questions, hopes, and all that you are experiencing now.  It doesn't have to be a long daily entry. And when you are done writing READ. Read what you want to read right now. Manga, graphic novels, fiction, nonfiction...challenge yourself to read a genre you usually don't read. 

I will be posting some library resources below if you need new books to read, also make sure you check out our Book Talk Flipgrid to post your reading recommendations, and to find some recommendations.

I will also be posting updates on Instagram and Twitter, so feel free to contact me on those platforms as well:
