Virtual Instructional Block: 

Dedicated to optional review of previously learned topics

Pre-Algebra:  Wednesdays 8.30 - 9.00 am
Algebra 1:       Wednesdays 9.00 - 10.00 am

Resources, notes, videos, and review activities covering specific review topics will be shared weekly with students via Microsoft Teams. Students can work on these during the instructional block or any other time and address any specific questions or clarifications with me using the chat feature within Teams. I will be responding to these promptly within the allocated  block time.

Office Hours: Tuesdays 12.00 - 1.30 pm
This time is reserved for answering any questions on previous week's review or any other general questions.

During this unprecedented situation leading to school closure for remainder of the academic year, please know that I am available remotely to answer questions and support student learning. I have created our virtual classes in Microsoft Teams, the county's preferred digital platform for distance learning.  Pre-Algebra and Algebra students can access their respective Teams using their Office 365 account the same way they access their school email. 

Students may work on optional review of topics we have completely covered in class so far. This includes Units 1 through 9 for Pre-Algebra and Units 1 through 9 for Algebra.  I will continue to post learning resources, video links, and practice materials within Teams covering some of the key topics.  A complete listing of all units and associated notes and practice materials is available under Files and Documents Tab to the left.

Additionally, students may review resource by visiting #GoOpenVA and
PWCS Home Learning

I will continue to stay in touch and share learning resources and tools but it is most important that everyone take care of their health and stay safe and calm in this challenging time.
