I am excited to be starting the 4th Quarter with you! Our class may look a little different than what we are used to, but we will navigate our way through this change together. Here is some information you may find helpful.
When we have live instructional sessions or small group meetings, they will be on Thursday with FOA I (3rd, 5th, 6th period) from 1:30-2:30 and PreAlgebra (1st and 4th period) from 2:30-3:30. This is a CHANGE from the time I listed last week. This was changed for the whole math department. You will have to give me a minute or two to leave the first meeting and get into the second meeting. PreAlgebra kids shouldn’t leave the Google Meet link until at least 2:40 in case we suffer a glitch between the two meetings.
It is going to be very important that you check your PCPS GMail account and our Google Classroom at least once a day as these will be the primary ways that I will communicate with you during the 4th quarter.
I am not using my webpage or Onenote to post any assignments. Everything will start in Google Class.
If you are not sure how to join or use Google Classroom or just need a quick refresher, please take a moment to watch this short video. How to Sign-in to Google Classroom and Access Materials
I will have office hours all quarter where I will be available to help you or answer any questions you may have.
My office hours will be from 4-5 pm. I’ve gone back and forth over this the past two weeks. I feel having my hours at this time will give the students a chance to do the assignment for the day and ask questions if necessary. Then they could return to the assignment if needed and complete it. If this doesn’t work out I will switch to a time in the morning. I would send a mass email to let you all know of this change.
