Welcome Back 6th Graders! 

 

 First, I would like to say welcome back and applaud everyone for making it through the first 9 weeks of school!

 

In case you are not aware, there will be a change in the way you will access assignments and conference calls. Starting today, all assignments and web calls will take place in the TEAMS app which I have added to your apps in Clever. We will no longer use Kiddom nor ZOOM. Please see video below to learn how to access TEAMS.

 

You will now access your lesson plans, assignments, and live conference calls all in one place. We will continue to use Amplify for our content and Skyward to see your grades. You can also continue to communicate with me through email and now TEAMS.

 

Tomorrow, October 13, I will host a web call for each class as follows:

Block 1- 9:00 am

Block 2-9:10 am

Block 4-9:20 am.

 

This call will answer any questions that you may have about how to access TEAMS. During our call, I will help you navigate through TEAMS and answer any questions that you may have about accessing and turning in assignments. Please see the video posted below to help with locating TEAMS.

 

HOMEROOM Distance Learners – continue to log in your attendance each morning between 8:00-8:15 A.M. Find the form under the Student tab above, then scroll to 'Attendance for Distance Learners' and fill out the form.

 

Office Hours: Thursdays 12:40-1:00

ZOOM Live Stream Days: Tuesdays and Fridays
